Dublin remain on course for a quarter final spot in the Allianz Hurling League, despite their defeat to Clare on Saturday.

That loss was their second in two weeks.

They are still in fourth place in Division 1A, however, with four points from four games.

The top four sides go into the Allianz League quarter finals.

While the bottom two sides go into a relegation playoff, with the loser of that going down to Division 1B next season.

The Boys in Blue face Galway in the final group game next weekend- a game which will decide where in the table Ger Cunningham’s men finish.

The Dublin boss says they are still in charge of their own destiny:

Meanwhile, reigning League and All-Ireland champions Kilkenny look set for a relegation playoff.

They're bottom of Division 1A, after losing to Tipperary yesterday by 2-22 to 1-13 in Thurles.

Cork stay top of Division 1A, after narrowly seeing off Galway by 2-17 to 20 points.

Meanwhile, in the Allianz Football League, the Boys in Blue are fifth in Division 1, after their win over Mayo on Saturday.

The top four go into the semi finals, while the 7th and 8th placed teams get relegated into Division 2.

Dublin host Derry on Saturday week in their penultimate Division 1 game.

Cork are top of Division 1 after their narrow 17 points to 2-10 win over Tyrone yesterday.

Kerry beat Donegal by 2-13 to 2-11 in Tralee in a repeat of last year’s All-Ireland final.

And Monaghan got the better of Derry by 15 points to 10 in Clones.
