If Kildare can defeat Westmeath on Sunday in Newbridge then get the better of Galway in Tuam two weeks later they will be promoted to the top division.

Following last weekend’s games Division 2 is incredible tight. Tyrone have already secured promotion but the second spot is there for the taking and while it is an incredibly close affair in Kildare’s favour is the fact their promotion hopes are entirely in their own hands.
