Dublin and Meath to renew rivalry as Dunboyne set up Leinster ladies club SFC final against Fox-Cab

Dublin and Meath will renew their rivalry in this year's Leinster ladies club SFC final.

A 78th minute deflected goal from Meath All-Ireland winner Emma Duggan snatched victory from the jaws of defeat for Dunboyne as they edged Tinahely of Wicklow by 3-13 to 1-18 after extra-time yesterday.

The hosts looked to have done enough to win when leading by two points at that stage but Meath teenage sensation Duggan repeated her heroics from the All-Ireland semi-final versus Cork to rescue Dunboyne and earn them a place in the provincial senior final for the first time.


Back-to-back Meath winners Dunboyne, who also include Senior Player of the Year Vikki Wall in their ranks, can take inspiration from the county's historic All-Ireland SFC ladies final victory against Dublin at Croke Park two months ago, as they aim to defy the odds against an all-conquering Foxrock-Cabinteely side, who have won the last five Leinster senior titles, at Kinnegad next Sunday.

Meanwhile, Galway's Kilkerrin-Clonberne will face Leitrim champions Glencar-Manorhamilton in the Connacht ladies club SFC final in Tubbercurry next Sunday after hammering Clan na nGael of Roscommon 6-22 to 0-4.
