Dublin have advanced to the final of the Leinster Football Championship, after a 0-14 to 0-12 win over Kildare at Croke Park this afternoon.
Kildare controlled much of the game and were four points ahead in the second-half, before Dublin hit back with a strong finish.
Despite coming so close to preventing Dublin from winning a 13th consecutive Leinster title, Kildare manager Glenn Ryan bemoaned the officiating advantages he believes Dublin get at Croker.
You can say it’s sour grapes but I know I'm reflecting the views of most teams around the country.
Everything is laid out up here from a familiarity perspective, from a games perspective and everything else seems to go their way as well.

"Well, there's fellas walking up and down one side of the official and nobody can do anything down the other end", added Ryan.
"Fellas standing in my so-called box and my own officials being told to get out of it and there's somebody from the other side [in it].
"There's sideline balls not given, a fella tripped up in front of the goals, wasn't given,
"Sure we'll play anywhere, but you want to play anywhere when it's fair. And there wasn't anything glaring, nothing glaring.
"There were calls went either way, but when you look at stuff that goes on on the sideline and the dressing-rooms and all that, you know, it's all wrapped up in it."
Dublin will now face Micky Harte's Louth side in the final on May 14.
