They should finish the National leagues first imho. It is a good competition. It has good close games. Kerry are the current champs, not the Dubs. Also GAA owe it to Allianz (sponsor), to play the leagues. My plan, start the leagues, play them over the Summer, and make a decision in June/July about the All Ireland series.

I think that on a good day Donegal are capable of beating Dublin. It would take a lot of things to go right for us and Dublin having an off day perhaps, but it's not impossible. If you had day where the likes of Murphy, McBrearty, Thompson, McHugh, MacNiallais & Gallen were on top form any defense would find them hard to contain.

Did they not already say the leagues would be played over 5 weeks around May?

They did. Agree with Galwayford they ought to be played. Will be good for all the county panels in both codes to get some competitive games before the championship starts and shouldn't take too long to complete.
