Dublin and Kildare To Contest U20 Final

April 21st, 2022

EirGrid Leinster Under 20 Football Championship semi-finals

Kildare 2-11 Offaly 0-15

Dublin 4-12 Meath 1-14

Kildare and Dublin will contest the EirGrid Leinster U20 Football Championship final.

At O’Connor Park Kildare struck a goal in either half to defeat Offaly, last year’s All Ireland winners, by 2-11 to 0-15.

Level, 1-5 to 0-8, at the interval, Offaly edged three points clear early in the second half, but Kildare responded impressively.

Daniel Lynam supplied a goal for Kildare in the opening period, while Cormac Delaney and Keith O’Neill were sharp for Offaly.

Aaron Browne was introduced in the third quarter for Kildare making a significant impact scoring 1-2 as the Lilywhites prevailed.

Dublin were always in control against Meath at Parnell Park, earning a convincing 4-12 to 1-14 success.

Three first half majors from Ryan O’Dwyer, Adam Waddick, and Luke Breathnach ensured Dublin held a commanding 3-7 to 0-4 advantage.

Meath improved considerably when the action recommenced, but Dublin refused to be perturbed.

A fourth Dublin goal arrived courtesy of the impressive Breathnach in the 36th minute.

Meath’s Eoghan Frayne pinched a consolation goal, but Dublin will meet Kildare in what promises to be a lively provincial decider.
