1810 We have reports on all the big games today in our GAA section now. Thanks for reading on what was a busy day in both codes.
1745 A 16-point win for Dublin with the damage coming early on. Diarmuid Connolly's hat-trick will grab the headlines. Armagh were poor and their shooting and defending was atrocious at times.
Full-time: Dublin 4-17 Armagh 1-10
1742 Philly McMahon is dismissed for a second yellow card. Needless given the scoreline, it was a high challenge with his hand against the opposing player. Dublin 4-17 Armagh 1-10
1736 John Cooper finishes a great team move by the Dubs. Armagh are begging for the whistle now. Dublin 4-14 Armagh 1-08

1710 We're underway again in Croke Park with Aidan Forker registering the first point of the half. Dublin 3-07 Armagh 0-06

1643 Another goal for the Dubs as Diarmuid Connolly nets after good work by Michael Dara MacAuley. Dublin 3-06 Armagh 0-04

Galway v Meath, Pearse Stadium, Sunday 2.30pm
When Galway saw off Derry on the opening weekend of the Allianz Football League, it left huge positivity surrounding the fresh approach the county were making this year.
It was a wonderful result from a performance that offered hope for the year ahead, but unfortunately it has ebbed away in recent weeks.
A home draw with Louth and defeat to Westmeath have dampened ambitions of what may lay ahead for Galway this summer.Comments (
All-Ireland-winning manager Ger Loughnane has urged the GAA to be more transparent about the wages paid to full-time staff.
Loughnane, who is recovering after treatment for acute myeloid leukaemia, voiced his opinion on the issue of payment to inter-county managers in an interview on RTÉ's Raidió na Gaeltachta.
"How much is the GAA paying Christy Cooney for the last three years, or the full-time county secretaries all over the country - why don't the GAA give us that information? This is the question," said the former Clare and Galway hurling manager.Comments (
The GAA has published it's accounts for 2011, with revenue down from €58 million in 2010 to €47 million last year.
The decrease was along expected lines and the shortfall is due to the end of the rental of Croke Park to the FAI and IRFU, which was worth €4 million, a reduction in admission prices and the decision by the association to show 10 less championship games on live television.Comments (
