Dublin minor footballers will field the same fifteen that defeated Longford for tonights ESB Leinster MFC semi-final against Kildare at Parnell Park.

Dual players Ciaran Kilkenny, Cormac Costelloe and Emmet O Conghaile turn out again after helping the minor hurlers to a Leinster semi-final victory over Westmeath last weekend.

Kildare have a serious team and surprisingly they are the 7/4 outsiders, which could prove to be a huge price. Tony Gibbons starts with Celbridge’s Conor Brady dropping to the bench in what is the only change in personnel from the side that beat offaly by double scores in the quarter final.
