TG4 Leinster Senior Championship Semi Finals

TG4 Leinster Senior Championship – Semi Finals.
Kildare 3 – 18 Laois 3 – 12

Kildare have already booked their place in the TG4 Leinster senior championship final, when they registered their first win in many years over hot favourites and last years finalists Laois (3-18 to 3-12) in O’Moore Park on the 28th of June last.
The sides were deadlocked ( 2 – 13 to 3 – 10) at the end of normal time, and with twenty minutes of extra time to be played it was game on.
Kildares Aishling Jennings broke the stalemate when she pointed from a free to put the Lillie whites in front, and despite the O’Moore girls efforts they were unable to get back into the driving seat, while Kildare piled on the pressure to romp home comfortable winners with a six point winning margin. Kildare must now await the outcome of the second semi final, where Meath lock horns with reigning TG4 Leinster senior champs Dublin.

Meath v Dublin

Date: Saturday 4th July
Venue; Pairc Tailteann, Navan, Co. Meath.
Throw in 4.30pm.
Referee: Des McEnery (Westmeath).
Victory against Dublin would see the Royals in their first Leinster Final in three years, but, in fairness it will be a tall order for Brendan Dardis’s side. The Jackies are boosted by a great run in this years Bord Gais Energy NFL, defeating reigning League Champions Cork in the qualifying rounds, however the Rebelettes over turned the Dubs in the semi final.
Dublin had three players on the Division 1 Bord Gais Energy Team of the League, Goalkeeper Cliodhna O’Connor, corner back Maria Kavanagh and full forward Sinead Ahern, while Meaths Grainne Nulty received the number eight shirt on the Bord Gais Energy Intermediate team of the League.
Meath retained their senior status this season when they defeated Waterford (0-15 to 1-0) in a relegation playoff in Newtownmountkennedy, County Wicklow, back in the depths of winter, but Waterford turned the tables on the Royals ( 0-15 to 2-13 ) after extra time, when both sides met at the quarter final stages of the NFL.
Dublin, will be out in force in defence of their Leinster senior championship will be hoping to
But I’m sure that Brendan Dardis and Co will be hoping their charges will make amends for the poor performance against the Dubs in the same fixture last season, when they were over run by Gerry McGill’s Dublin ladies (0-19 to 1-6).
A great crowd is expected to come out in support of the Meath ladies as this game is a curtain raiser to the Meath v Waterford mens GAA game.
