Stumbling Dublin

Dublin have dominated the All Ireland Football Championship in recent years but their performances of late have given hope to opponents that they may be beginning to stumble. They had to work hard for their eight point win against Wexford the first day out. While, somewhat surprisingly, Meath pinned them to their collar for long parts of their semi final tie only for Dessie Farrell’s men to win out by six points.

Uphill task for Kildare

Despite the struggles for Dublin, it still poses a big challenge for Jack O’Connor’s men. Kildare haven’t beaten Dublin since 2000 and haven’t been in a Leinster Final since 2017. However, they have had a decent league campaign, securing promotion to Division and followed that up with wins over Offaly and Westmeath in the Leinster Championship. Dublin: Evan Comeford; Michael Fitzsimons, David Byrne, Jonny Cooper, James McCarthy, Brian Howard, Sean McMahon; Brian Fenton, Peader O’Cofaigh Byrne; Paddy Small, Ciaran Kilkenny, Niall Scully, Cormac Costello, Con O’Callaghan, Dean Rock. Kildare: Mark Donnellan; Mark Dempsey, Mick O’Grady, Eoin Doyle; Ryan Houlihan, David Hyland, Kevin Flynn; Luke Flynn, Aaron Masterson; Alex Beirne, Fergal Conway, Neil Flynn; Ben McCormack, Daniel Flynn, Jimmy Hyland.

Full time Dublin 0-20 Kildare 1-9

Full credit to Dublin, wasn't a sterling performance but they'll see this as progress ahead of a challenge against Mayo. Kildare should be unhappy with their performance but will point to Dublin's superiority, despite the opposition, they looked tired early on but their shooting has been poor and transitioning of play slow and tedious allowing Dublin to capitalise.

Well, how about that. James McCarthy is robbed of the ball by Daniel Flynn and hits the back of the net.
