CONFIRMED: Date and venue for Laois U-20s Leinster football final with Dublin

The EirGrid Leinster U-20 Football Championship final between Laois and Dublin has been fixed for Netwatch Cullen Park, Carlow on Friday, 6th March.

In what will be a repeat of the 2019 decider, Laois and Dublin will face off on Friday week at the Carlow venue at 7.30pm.

Eddie Kinsella's Laois side successfully manoeuvered a hectic week which saw them force extra-time in last Monday's quarter-final against Westmeath before eventually advancing 4-3 on penalties, and they were back out four days later when they got the better of a fancied Kildare side in horrible conditions to book their place in the final.

Tom Gray's Dublin finished with 10 points to spare over Longford in their quarter-final, and they went a step further against Meath in Saturday's semi-final to finish 13 points clear.
