Defending champions have been eliminated from this year’s Leinster Minor Football Championship at the round robin stage.

Despite hammering Westmeath by a commanding scoreline of 5-19 to 0-09 on Tuesday night, Dublin finished third in their group as Wicklow followed up on their surprise win at Parnell Park last week by defeating already-qualified Meath 1-10 t0 1-08.

In the group’s other game on Tuesday, Louth picked up their second win of the series by beating Offaly 2-12 to 1-11.

In group 2, meanwhile, Kildare defeated Longford to ensure that Laios would take the remaining semi-final spot in this year’s championship.

As a result of the final round of matches, the two semi-finals will see Meath travel to Portlaoise to face Laois, with Kildare welcoming Wicklow to Newbridge.

Meanwhile, Dublin will still have the chance to pick up some Leinster silverware this season, as they have placed into the Minor Shield semi-finals along with Louth, Longford and Wexford.
