GAELIC GAMES

Six Kildare teams advanced to All Ireland final and semi finals and provincial finals over the weekend. 

Yesterday, the senior women's footballers advanced to the Leinster Intermediate final with victory over Offaly.

The game in Hawkfield finished 5-14 to 3-6.

Here's manager Seán Finnegan's take on the game:

The hurlers will play in this year's Christy Ring Cup final, thanks to a comprehensive 5-25 to 3-10 over Wicklow on Saturday. 

They still have one more round robin game to play against Sligo next weekend.

Here's manager David Herity:

On Saturday, the U20 footballers defeated Sligo by 0-12 to 0-7 to book their place in the All Ireland final, where they will play Tyrone who beat Kerry yesterday. 

Manager Brian Flanagan:

 

Kfm understands that Kildare GAA chairman Mick Gorman has contacted Croke Park about hosting the final.

On Sunday at 2pm in Croke Park, Kildare and Westmeath meet in the Leinster senior football semi-final

Kildare GAA wants the U20 game to be on before the senior semi final.

The Kildare camogie side overcame Dublin in the Leinster Intermediate Championship in Abbottstown on Saturday afternoon by 0-16 to 0-12 and they will now play Meath in the decider next weekend. 

Joe Quaid is the side's manager:
