For the second year in a row, the National League Division 1 football and hurling finals could be played as a double bill in Croke Park.

Originally scheduled for March 22, the hurling final will have to be delayed for at least a week due to the postponements of last weekend's Limerick-Waterford and Galway-Tipperary games.

There are no further 'free' weekends scheduled in hurling which means games in the knock-put phase of the competition must be rescheduled.

The GAA delayed finalising the details until a meeting of the Central Competitions Control Committee next Monday due to the danger of more games being lost to this weekend's forecasted bad weather.

If this weekend's games go ahead as scheduled, the postponed ties will be played on March 7/8. The quarter-finals will be played on March 15/16; the semi-finals on March 21/22 and the final on the weekend of March 29/30.
