Form Guide 

There is absolutely no doubt about it Dublin are the heavy favourites here. They've won 17 of the last 18 Leinster Championships and have won it every year since 2011.


Despite Dublin's season being underwhelming so far, they've lost just one competitive game, won a Division Two title, been promoted back to division one and beat Laois 4-30 to 2-9 in the opening round of this competition already this year. Couple that with the return of some of their biggest stars like Jack McAffrey, Paul Mannion and Stephen Cluxton and its hard to see most teams in Ireland beating them.


Kildare's form has neither been amazing nor terrible, they only won three of seven games in the second division of the leagues. However, they did comfortably dispose of Wicklow in the Leinster quarter-final beating them 1-17 to 0-10. Unfortunately for Kildare mediocrity is rarely enough to beat this Dublin side. Kildare however will take confidence from their clash in the league when they lost to Dublin by only a single point.

However, Dublin have come on strides since then, resembling a team some feared was gone in their game against Laois. Anything but a comprehensive Dublin win this Sunday would be one of the biggest upsets in recent GAA history and a dark day for the Dubs.

Team News


Dessie Farrell isn't messing about here. Jack McCaffrey and Paul Mannion both start and that's not the half of it. However, there's no space for Dean Rock, Cormac Costello or the Small Brothers who make up an outstanding bench, a testament to just how strong this team is.




Glenn Ryan has made no changes to his side that beat Wicklow in the quarter-final and why would he after the success he had that day? Kevin O'Callaghan and Aaron Masterson start in the mid-field while Darragh Kirwan lines out in full forward. The team in full is:

That's all the information you need on how to watch Dublin v Kildare in this year's Leinster SFC semi-final.
