There was a dramatic end to the National Football League on Sunday, with relegation and promotion spots up for grabs over all four divisions.

The GAA have announced the details for all four finals, with each game taking place in Croke Park next weekend, with a double-header on both Saturday and Sunday.

In the opening match of the weekend, Westmeath and Wexford play in an all-Leinster Division 4 Final. That game throws in at 3pm with both teams guaranteed promotion.

Saturday's double-header will be completed by Louth's game against All-Ireland semi-finalists Tipperary. That throws in at 5pm.

On Sunday, Galway and Kildare will try and add the Division 2 title, to their promotions back to the top-tier, at 2pm. Kildare last played in the top-tier in 2014. Two successive relegations have been followed for two promotions.  Galway last played in Division 1 in 2011.

Kerry and Dublin are the two most successful teams in the history of the National League with 31 titles between the duo. A combined 54 titles have been won by every other team.

The game will culminate the league with a 4pm throw-in. It's the second year in a row, the two teams will compete for the ‎Irish National Insurance Cup.
