Longford have conceded their final Allianz Football League Division 3 match to already promoted Cork.

Longford manager Padraic Davis told the Irish Examiner that the match was a “dead rubber” and that it would be of no advantage to play given that Cork have won the division and Longford’s promotion hopes ended with a defeat to Derry on Saturday.

The two teams were due to meet on Sunday at 2pm at Pearse Park but instead both will now have a weekend off before their scheduled first matches in the championship the following weekend.

Cork – who won Division 3 on Saturday when they beat Louth – will meet Kerry at Páirc Uí Chaoimh in the Munster SFC while Longford face Louth in the Leinster championship in Mullingar.
