Both Donegal and Leitrim will be in action in the All-Ireland Masters gaelic football finals which are set to take place in Ballyleague, Co. Roscommon this Saturday, September 21st.
The Shield final will act as the curtain-raiser when the amalgamation of Leitrim/Longford take on Laois at 1:30 pm.
Leitrim/Longford’s path to the final has included wins over Sligo, Kildare and Antrim before a draw with Mayo secured them a semi-final place against Down – where they survived a late rally to make it to the final by the bare minimum.
Listen to Leitrim/Longford Masters PRO, Steve Dolan speaking with Ocean FM’s Gary Feeney about this Saturday’s final:
After the Shield final, Donegal will face Dublin in the senior final at 3:30 pm.
Val Murray’s side reached the final with a narrow one-point victory over Roscommon last weekend, while holders Dublin overcame Tyrone by a five-point margin in their semi-final.
Both sides met at the semi-final stage last year and a replay was needed to find a winner, with Dublin coming out on top and eventually going on to win the competition.
