Football League Division 4 round-up

Despite having a bye this weekend Fermanagh continue to top Division 4 of the Football League.

They lead the way on scoring difference from Clare, who won this weekend along with Wicklow, Leitrim and Waterford.

Clare made their long journey to London count as they claimed a 0-17 to 0-12 victory over the hosts at Ruislip.

The visitors led throughout this contest and held a 0-9 to 0-4 interval lead. David Tubridy was in impressive form over the 70 minutes once again top-scoring for Clare.

The sides were evenly matched in the closing 35 minutes, sharing 16 points equally.

Wicklow left it late before running out 1-9 to 0-10 winners over Carlow, despite the second half dismissal of Ciaran Hyland on a straight red card.

Wicklow had led by 1-3 to 0-5 at half-time, with Tony Hannon netting at 12th minute goal.

Meanwhile, Kilkenny's dismal run continued with Leitrim inflicting a 35-point defeat (4-26 to 0-3) on them in Carrick-on-Shannon.

Leitrim led by 0-14 to 0-2 at the interval, and failed to ease up on the restart.

Emlyn Mulligan netted two second half goals including Leitrim's first - a penalty goal which pushed his side 1-18 to 0-2 in front.

Wayne McKeon and Kevin Conlon registered Leitrim's other goals.

On Saturday evening, Waterford dashed Limerick's promotion hopes after a 1-18 to 1-14 win over their Munster rivals at the Gaelic Grounds.

Limerick led by 1-11 to 1-10 with 20 minutes left on the clock, but the dismissal of Stephen Kelly on a second yellow card proved costly as Waterford finished strongly.

The hosts led by 0-9 to 0-8 at the end of a tight first half, which saw the sides level on four occasions.

Seamus O'Carroll netted the Shannonsiders' goal a minute after the restart, but an Adam Brophy goal brought Waterford into contention before the Deise kicked on in the closing quarter.
