While some games fell by the wayside due to the snow, there was plenty of outstanding performance to talk about across round 6 of the Allianz football leagues...

1. Rory Beggan (Monaghan)

The Farney County secured their Division 1 status with a six point win over Donegal and Beggan made the scoresheet with three pointed frees.

2. Eoghan Kerin (Galway)

Kerin and the Tribesmen earned a share of the spoils with Dublin and the two counties will renew acquaintances in the Division 1 decider.

3. Brendan Donaghy (Armagh)

The experienced Clonmore Robert Emmetts clubman and his Armagh team-mates are looking forward to Division 2 football in 2019.

4. Barry McKeon (Longford)

McKeon caught the eye in the MIdlanders four-point local derby success over Westmeath and it will be winner takes all when they square up to Fermanagh in round 7.

5. Conor Meyler (Tyrone)

The Omagh player made the scoresheet with a point as the Red Hands scored a surprisingly comfortable victory over Mayo at MacHale Park. 

6. Carlus McWilliams (Derry)

Derry eased their relegation concerns with a 12 point success over Wexford and McWilliams impressed for Damian McErlain's side.

7. Paul Murphy (Kerry)

Murphy and the Kingdom returned to winning ways with a 0-19 to 0-14 victory over Kildare on home soil.

8. Brendan Murphy (Carlow)

It was a day to remember for the Carlow GAA fraternity in Corrigan Park on Sunday and their physically imposing midfielder played a huge part in their promotion to Division 3.

9. Gary Brennan (Clare)

The Banner County's talisman raised three white flags as Colm Collins' charges celebrated a rare win over Cork.

10. Mattie Donnelly (Tyrone)

The Trillick clubman put in another industrious shift which yielded four points against last year's defeated All-Ireland finalists.

11. Ciaran Kilkenny (Dublin)

Kilkenny was at his probing best in the Sky Blues' draw with Galway and found the target with five points.

12. Ciarain Murtagh (Roscommon)

Murtagh's return of 0-5 (3 frees) helped send the primrose and blues on the road to a valuable victory over Cavan.

13. David Clifford (Kerry)

The Fossa teenager top scored for the Kingdom with six points against the Lilywhites.

14. Daniel Flynn (Kildare)

Scorer of 0-6, the Kildare full-forward's best efforts weren't enough to prevent his team from slipping to a sixth straight defeat.

15. Conor McManus (Monaghan)

The Donegal defence struggled to cope with McManus who finished the Clones contest with five points to his name.
