Clare are a decent side and could give anyone a game.
I think they are just a little short to challenge for a Div1 slot, but I also think they are too strong to be a Div3 side.
Prob mid table Div2 is about right for them but they could go down. Kildare seem to me to be a Div3 side at the minute for what ever reason. Limerick have been awful.

Down really pushed Derry hard in the McKenna cup, I know Derry have improved since then and I haven't seen Down since, but there are some serious footballers there and they are very physical.
Cavan will feel hard done by after last year.
I feel both could compete in Div2 and maintain their status there.
Clare lost to Kildare by a point
They have Derry and Limerick
Kildare have Meath and Limerick

It looks like Kildare stay up and Clare go down unless Limerick beat Kildare and Clare beat Limerick.

yeah Div2 is a strange league this year, I'm only talking about what I've seen and my opinion on Kildare being Div3 is more about the level they are playing at as opposed to them actually getting relegated.
Clare were unlucky to lose against Dublin.
Meath beat Cork.
So really results have been unpredictable. I could see Clare beating Limerick easily, but I do think Derry will go all guns blazing for promotion and will have too much for Clare.
I can see Meath beating Kildare, but i'd still expect Kildare to beat Limerick.
It does look like Clare and Limerick are going down. Clare would/should give the Tailteann a good rattle.
Kildare have been awful but in one match they did the job and it was against Clare. That win may turn out to be priceless.

What dates are the National League finals? Is it Div 3 & 4 on a Saturday and Div 1 & 2 on the Sunday?

Clare have a superior points difference to Kildare except in the head to head.

Meath aren’t getting physical enough with Dublin here, standing off them, poor considering this ref is favouring defenders.

………… and M Morrissey is certainly favouring Dublln in his commentary. Who is his co-commentator; he’s putting me to sleep.

Morrissey is just pathetic, simple as.
especially when he adds his condescending comments.
Useless.
him commentating is a very good reason to go to as many games as you can.

Meaths defending is so naďve it’s embarrassing. It’s making it so easy for Dublin. I can’t see the wind making that much of a difference in the second half but poor choice of shooting from the forwards.

FT Meath 1-11 Dublin 2-19. Such low intensity contest whereby the home crowd atmosphere was killed early on. 
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

So frustrating. To have the commentators questioning our strength and conditioning at this stage seems unforgivable. We should be at the same level as the best teams in Ireland in that department, no excuses. We have the facilities, the clubs have the facilities. I can’t get my head around that. I really f**king hope Colm wises up now defensively. We’ll be lucky to get a result from Kildare if we play man to man again.

Meath a very big team, by conditioning I suspect he means ability to get up and down the field quick.

We have a few big players but plenty smaller lads. Still should be well able to go 70+ minutes. If a player is involved at county level from underage that shouldn’t be an issue these days.
