Kildare Earned Plaudits But Everyone Was Talking About One Dublin Star After Leinster Final

Dublin are Leinster champions for the seventh consecutive occasion, as they saw off a spirited Kildare performance in Croke Park.

The Boys in Blue won out 2-23 to 1-17, but there were several positives to take away for Cian O’Neill as his side faces into the qualifiers.

While Dublin created history, many felt that it was a moral victory for the Lilywhites.

However, undoubtedly the man of the match was Con O’Callaghan. The young Cuala star stole the show, scored 12 points, with six from play.

Having already scooped an All-Ireland u-21 crown this year, O’Callaghan has fought his way in Jim Gavin’s starting plans.

Dublin now head to the quarter-finals, while Kildare will head to the back door, where they will face Armagh or Monaghan.
