Social Media Reaction – Bad weekend for Ulster

Monaghan were nabbed by Dublin at the weekend

Monaghan were nabbed by Dublin at the weekend

In what was one of the most dramatic final days of the league in quite some time, Ulster teams came away with little to show for it.

Only Down were pleased with their performance after their draw with Cork meant that they maintained their place in division two.

Tyrone, Donegal and Monaghan were all beaten, and they missed out on the divisin one league final.

The Farney will be most buoyed up though as they put on a fine display against Dublin, a game in which they led by six points at a stage.

Donegal lost out to Mayo when the latter side scored six unanswered points in the final quarter to win.

Cavan needed to win against Roscommon to have any chance of beating promotion, they lost to Roscommon, but the result didn’t matter as Mayo’s win made it a moot point.

Derry and Fermanagh were both relegated from division two. Derry thought that they had did enough to save their place when they beat Fermanagh by a point, but Down’s draw with Cork was enough to keep them up, and relegate the Oak Leafers.

Meanwhile, in division three, Armagh lost to Tipperary when Michael Quinlivan scored a goal in the fifth minute of injury time which sent Tipp into the league final, and sentenced Armagh to another year in Division three. They were minutes away from promotion, but had it snapped away from their grasp.

Antrim had a similar heartbreak, as their draw with Longford was not enough to keep them above the relegation zone in division three.

The results saw plenty of disappointment on Twitter:
