Dublin will be represented in both the senior and minor Leinster football finals on July 16th after the young boys in blue beat Kildare in Newbridge last night on a final score of 1-16 to 0-14.
After a shaky start and failing to score until the 16th minute, Tom Gray's side came good with a brilliant second half performance, crushing the Lilies' hopes of a third Leinster title in a row.
Remarkably, of the 1-16 Dublin scored, 1-13 came from open play and 1-10 came from the full forward line of Ross McGarry, Seán Hawkshaw and David Lacey.
Kildare started well in both the opening exchanges of the first and second half, putting the Dubs under pressure, but composure in front of goal proved vital as did Ross McGarry's first half goal.
James Doran burst through the Kildare defence to supply the killer ball to McGarry who made no mistake in finding the net.
The Kildare senior side will have a chance to get their revenge on Dublin in the senior final in GAA HQ in ten days time.
For the Dublin minors however, they face Louth in curtain raiser in what is Louth's first appearance in a minor final in 41 years. They beat Wexford by a single point on Tuesday evening.
