Game against Wicklow last night, finished 2-16 to 9 points

GAELIC GAMES

Kildare men’s minor footballers are into the Leinster final.

Last night they beat Wicklow 2-16 to 9 points in St. Conleth’s Park, Newbridge.

The game was effectively over by half time with Kildare leading by 1-11 to 0-2 points – the Kildare goal scored by Sarsfields’ Ben Loakman, after 26 minutes.

At 45 minutes, Kildare led 1-16 to 6 points.

Celbridge’s Killian Browne had Kildare’s second goal 10 minutes later, with Kildare then leading by 15 points.

Here's manager Niall Cronin's reaction, following the win:

Kildare will now play Dublin in the final, after they beat Offaly 2-13 to 2-4 in Parnell Park, yesterday evening.

The final will be played next Wednesday, 18th May, in O’Moore Park, Portlaoise.

Throw-in scheduled for 7.30pm.

Kildare hurlers final Christy Ring Cup group game against Sligo on Saturday, will now throw in at 12pm.

Kildare GAA has not stated any reason for the change - the game was previously fixed for 1pm. 

It could be either a request from Sligo, or more likely, to allow Kildare fans attending the hurling the time to travel to Carrick-on-Shannon for the U20 All Ireland football final, at 5pm.

On Saturday, KFM will have live updates of the hurling and full commentary of the U20 final, in association with Homecare Solutions, Unit 4, Rathasker Sq, Kilcullen Rd. Naas.

Throw-in at 1.30pm, in Crettyard GAA club, Co. Laois.

SOCCER

Celtic are Scottish Premiership champions for the 10th time in 11 seasons.

A 1-1 draw at Dundee United was enough for the Glasgow club to clinch the title for a 52nd time.
