Due to the effects of Storm Emma, the GAA cancelled all Allianz National League games scheduled for this weekend. This includes the meeting of Dublin and Kerry at Croke Park which was due to take place on Saturday evening.
The tie will now be put back a week to the Sunday afternoon most likely, with reports citing the reason as the Garda Síochána not having the resources to properly man the game on the Saturday, due to other events taking place in the city.
This suits Kingdom manager Éamonn Fitzmaurice down to the ground, as he is set for quite a hectic weekend. Fitzmaurice is a co-manager of Pobalscoil Chorca Dhuibhne, and they are set to face Tralee CBS in the Corn Uí Mhuirí final on Saturday afternoon in Killarney.
Which means Dublin v Kerry must be Sunday 11th as Eamonn Fitz cannot do both the same day https://t.co/vCLuwnibtA

That game is another tie which was rescheduled, following the tragic passing of Aodhán Ó Conchúir.

Fitzmaurice is in for a busy weekend!
