Carrick-on-Shannon to host All-Ireland U20 football final

Avant Money Páirc Seán MacDiarmada in Carrick-on-Shannon will host next Saturday’s Eirgrid All-Ireland under-20 football final between Tyrone and Kildare.

The match will have a 5pm throw-in – and will be broadcast live by TG4.

Kildare, who beat Sligo in last Saturday’s semi-final by 0-12 to 0-7, were hoping that the final would be played at Croke Park.

However, Croke Park has fixed the final for a venue in a ‘neutral’ province.

Ulster champions Tyrone qualifed for the decider with a 1-14 to 1-12 win against Kerry in Sunday’s semi-final.
