A big night for all the players, in fairness!
It's a big night for Nathan Mullins, who will line out at midfield against his native Dublin.
It's been a long, long winter, all the same. Could do with some warm weather training in the Canaries. Or Australia. Thailand, even.
Not a nice night for football. But we don't have to play so no point complaining...
Laois also have a 100% record and should be able to preserve it when they host Waterford at O'Moore Park.

Carlow starting as selected. Unbeaten from the side that beat Limerick last weekend: Robbie Molloy; Danny Moran, Shane Redmond, Conor Lawlor; Jordan Morrissey, Daniel St Ledger, Ciaran Moran; Brendan Murphy, Sean Murphy; Sean Gannon, Darragh Foley, Eoghan Ruth; Paul Broderick, Darragh O'Brien, John Murphy.
Shane Quinn, Darragh Rooney and Damien Moran are parachuted into the Leitrim starting team in place of James Mitchell, James Rooney and Aidan Flynn respectively.
The Carlow-Leitriim match throws in at 5pm, while tonight's other three matches follow at 7pm. I'll be back with full coverage of all the action.
There are two games in the bottom division - Carlow and Laois put their 100% records on the line at home to Leitrim and Waterford respectively.
Cavan entertain their unbeaten neighbours Meath at Breffni Park. Both sides enjoyed convincing victories last weekend so this is going to be an interesting encounter. Defeat would represent a major set-back to either team's promotion hopes.
Top billing goes to the Croke Park meeting of All-Ireland champions Dublin and Donegal. The Dubs have a 100% record, while the visitors are still seeking their first win of the campaign.
May the four be with you
Four national football league Round Three matches take place this evening.
