The Leinster Club Football Final is shaping up to be cracker following the weekend’s semi-final match-ups.
St. Loman’s of Mullingar and Moorefield of Kildare were triumphant, leading to their pairing in the Leinster Final.
St. Loman’s overcame Meath’s Simonstown Gaels on a scoreline of 0-13 to 1-08.

Simonstown Gael’s had registered 1-04 after 15 minutes, leaving Loman’s looking on in agony before they cut the lead to just three points heading into half time; their fight back led to booking a coveted final spot.
Meanwhile, Moorefield overcame the challenge of Wicklow’s Rathnew, 2-13 to 2-07.
Rathnew were hotly tipped to surprise the Kildare men, with their ambush of Dublin side St. Vincent’s the upset of the year.
However, it wasn’t to be with a 14-man Moorefield side showing their class as Eanna O’Connor picked up eight points to his credit.

Moorefield lost Cian O’Connor in the 37th minute following a straight red card, and will be without his services for the final.
Nonetheless, they’ll be content with the ever reliable Niall Hurley-Lynch who nabbed 1-03 on the day.
The Leinster Club Senior Football Final is due to take place on Sunday, December 10th in O’Moore Park, Portlaoise.
