Dublin move into final

Dublin defeated Kildare by 1-12 to 1-11 to reach the Leinster SFC final.

Paul Flynn grabbed a first half goal to help the Dubs to a six points interval lead.

But Kildare drew level after Eamonn O'Callaghan pulled back a goal for the Lilywhites, and Dublin needed a late Bernard Brogan free to seal their place in the decider.

Their opponents will be Wexford, who saw off Carlow by 4-12 to 0-10, with goals from Shane Roche (2), PJ Banville and Eric Bradley.

Mayo qualified for the Connacht SFC final with a 1-12 to 1-6 win over Galway at McHale Park.

Galway, with the help of a Paul Conroy goal, led by 1-5 to 0-4 at half-time, but Mayo took over in the second half.

They never looked back once Alan Freeman got in for a goal, and the Tribesmen managed only one point in the entire second period.

Donegal reached their first Ulster SFC final since 2006 with a 2-6 to 0-9 win over defending champions Tyrone at Clones.

Sean Cavanagh scored twice to help Tyrone to a 0-6 to 0-1 lead, but Colm McFadden and Kevin Cassidy responded to narrow the gap to 0-6 to 0-4 at the break.

McFadden grabbed a goal on 56 minutes, and Tyrone lost Kevin Hughes to a second booking. And Donegal sealed their place in the decider with a stoppage time goal from Dermot Molloy.
