: 07/23/2018 - 08:21

No joy for Kildare teams over the weekend.

The minors lost the Leinster final on Saturday, the ladies football and Camogie teams were beaten and yesterday Kildare lost 19 points to 16 to Galway yesterday.

Despite the defeat, Kildare’s put in an excellent performance despite being without red-carded Daniel Flynn for 25 minutes of the 2nd half.

Here’s manager Cian O’Neill on the team’s performance

The full Cian O'Neill interview along with interviews with Fergal Conway and Johnny Byrne, plus former Kildare selector Niall Carew's match analysis will be on this evening's Kildare Scoreboard from 6.25pm.

Kildare’s remaining game is away to Kerry on Saturday week in Killarney.


A late David Clifford goal kept Kerry's Championship campaign alive.

The 19 year old hit the back of the net in injury time to give Kerry a 1-17 all draw with Monaghan

A win over Kerry would have put Monaghan through to their first All Ireland semi final since 1988

Kerry must now beat the Lilywhites in Killarney in a fortnight, hope Monaghan lose to Galway in Salthill and turn around a five point score deficit.


Scoring difference would then determine who goes through to the next round of the Championship.

As things stand, Kerry are on -3, Monaghan are +2..

A draw in Salthill will put Galway through as group winners and Monaghan the runners-up. 

This morning’s Kildare Today at 10.45 and this evening’s Kildare Scoreboard from 6.25pm will review all the weekend Kildare action.
