THE MOVING ROUND of the Super 8s in Croke Park over the weekend saw Donegal and Kerry play out a thrilling draw, while Mayo, Tyrone and Dublin all sealed wins.
In what was a football-only weekend, Mattie Donnelly drove Tyrone to a superb second-half comeback win over Cork.
Mickey Harte’s decision to move the Trillick ace into the full-forward line at half-time proved pivotal as the Red Hand overturned a seven-point deficit to claim their second victory in Group 1. Donnelly dispatched three points and was duly awarded man-of-the-match.
In the second game on Saturday night, Dublin were convincing winners over Roscommon to seal their progression into the last four of the All-Ireland series.
There were huge performances all over the field but Cuala man Con O’Callaghan was awarded the honour after scoring a brace during the victory.

Colm Boyle scooped the individual accolade as Mayo outlasted Meath in a 2-17 to 0-14 win against Meath which leaves them in contention to progress heading into the final round of games.
And the match of the weekend was undoubtedly the 1-20 apiece draw between Kerry and Donegal. Ryan McHugh was deservedly named player of the game after giving one of his greatest displays in the county jersey.
