Dublin vs Kildare date, throw-in time, TV and stream info, team news, betting odds and more
Dublin are aiming for their 12th consecutive Leinster title when they take on Kildare at GAA HQ.
After a notable drop in their standards throughout 2021, they appear better prepared to make a serious bid to reclaim All-Ireland this year.
Here’s everything you need to know about their provincial final against The Lilywhites:
When does the game take place and when is the throw-in?
It takes place at Croke Park on Saturday 28 May with a throw-in at 5pm.
What TV channel is it on and can I stream it?
RTE Two will show it as part of a double header preceded by the Munster showpiece between Kerry and Limerick.
So you can watch the two if you want via the RTE Player.
What are the teams?
Neither Dessie Farrell nor Glenn Ryan have named their starting XVs yet.
What are the betting odds?
No surprises here as the dubs are 1/7 despite both teams having similarly poor league campaigns in which they were relegated from Division One.
It’s clear the bookies aren’t putting much stock in Kildare’s win at Newbridge either, as they are eliminated at 5/1.
You can reset the two sides at 14/1 after 70 minutes to complete the level.
Con O’Callaghan spoke to MirrorSport about watching from his couch as the Dubs suffered that shock defeat in February.
“It was strange to watch, it was obviously a massive game for both of us and they deservedly come out on top. They were the better team that day.
“That sets it up well for two weeks. They’re obviously a really strong team, lots of really good athletes, especially up front. I think they’re going over 20 points or 20 goals a game in the last four or five games.
“They bring a big threat there and then defensively they’re very tight at the back, they’re very physical so yeah it’s going to be a big challenge.
“It’s mostly about us and our performance, that’s how we see it, a full 70 minutes. Yes, we expect a huge challenge.”
