Galway’s Senior Footballers fate in Division One of the Allianz National Football League remains in their own hands despite an eight point defeat to Dublin on Saturday in Pearse Stadium.

Defeat for Monaghan (Who are now relegated) and Roscommon means that Galway face Kerry next weekend knowing that a win (or a defeat for Roscommon against Derry) will see them in Division One next year.
