Dublin footballers will get the 2011 national leagues under way away to Armagh on the first weekend in February in a repeat of their Round Three championship qualifier earlier this year.

The provisional fixtures have been circulated to all counties for approval in recent days and show a marked decrease in the number of Saturday evening matches in football’s top flight.

Even allowing for Monaghan’s absence of suitable lighting, there are still only seven of the 32 scheduled Division 1 games being played on Saturday evening. That contrasts with up to 50pc in recent years across the top two divisions.

Dublin and Armagh is, however, one of the seven games and has been fixed for Saturday, February 5.

Seven days later Tipperary will host Kilkenny in the opening hurling league match in Semple Stadium, a repeat of the All-Ireland final. The same counties were paired together to open this year’s league, but snow forced a cancellation and the refixture three days later also fell victim to the weather.

Dublin footballers and hurlers will host both All-Ireland champions, Tipperary and Cork, in a double bill on Saturday February 19 that may be fixed for Croke Park instead of Parnell Park as part of a promotional package.
