Louth (4/1), who have been in the wilderness for 50 years, travel to Dublin on Sunday to take on their bitter rivals, Meath (2/9), in the Leinster Senior Football Final at Croke Park.
I’ll do my best to continue winnings ways following the impressive GAA betting tips last weekend. Unfortunately Antrim’s draw with Kildare scuppered the sneaky 15/1 treble but nonetheless five out of six selections came up trumps.

Tyrone (4/9) v Down (9/4)
Tyrone, the 2008 All-Ireland Senior Football champions, face Down in the semi-final of the Ulster Senior Football Championship at Casement Park, Belfast on Saturday evening.
Tyrone overcame a resilient Antrim side in the last round. Having gone into half-time seven points behind, Antrim showed great heart by pegging Tyrone back midway through the second period but in the end Tyrone’s class proved too much.
The Munster Senior Football Championship semi-final replay takes place this Sunday in Pairc Ui Chaoimh at 2pm.
Cork and Kerry resume battle following their high-tempered affair last weekend which saw both sides lack the killer instinct to see off their opponents.
Kerry were quite fortunate in fact, as the referee blew for a dubious decision late in added time in favour of Kerry. Nevertheless, The Gooch, as calm as ever in front of goal, slotted over the bar from an acute angle to force a replay.
