Kildare responded with points from Cannon and impressive Full Forward Simone Gilabert and Dublin’s Mary Nevin Kicked a Majestic point to send the teams in level at half time.

Dublin started the second half brightly with points from Sinead Ahearn and Ciara Murphy but again Kildare responded with points from Simone Gilabert and Emma Kilduff.With Dublin’s Niamh McEvoy dominating midfield the Dubs pressed for home with points from Ahearn and Murphy again the impressive Gilabert responded again with two free’s to level things up. With only minutes left and both teams playing as if their lives depended on it Dublin Sub Niamh Hurley kicked a terrific point to put the Dubs ahead again but Kildare again showed their fighting Spirit and went up the field and won a free which was converted by Emma Kilduff to earn a deserved draw for the Lilywhites.
