The recent six-in-a-row All Ireland champions will play in the second tier for the first time since 2007, with manager Dessie Farrell saying his side’s relegation gives them food for thought going forward.

Another relegation saw Kildare sent to Division Two after a 2-20 to 0-18 loss to Mayo – meaning James Horan's men will take on Kerry in the Division One final.
