A feast of football will be served up this afternoon in the confines of Parnell Park as four teams challenge to decide the winners in this year’s Dublin Senior Football Finals.

Whitehall Colmcille and Round Towers of Lusk go head to head to decide this year’s Senior 2 Championship. While the Senior 1 title will be captured by either Thomas Davis or Ballyboden St. Endas.

Senior 2 Championship Final

A fourteen point victory over Templeogue saw Whitehall comfortably into the Senior 2 Final. Within thirteen minutes Colmcilles were in the driving seat at 1-06 to 0-0. And it was Dublin forward Cormac Costello who dominated that opening spell scoring 1-04.

Costello’s diversity saw him score a point off either foot. He also converted a free and scored from the sideline. His goal was a neatly finished score from close range in the eight minute.

It was victory for Towers Lusk over a hotly tipped Cuala in the second Senior 2 Semi Final. one point seperated the side, as Cuala were forced to line out without Dublin Senior Forward Con O’Callaghan, having been injured in their Dublin Senior A Hurling Final victory.

Senior 1 Championship Final

With the Clery’s Cup up for grabs in the Senior 1 competition, both Thomas Davis and Ballyboden St. Endas are looking to capture their fourth title.

Thomas Davis have had a whirlwind return to the Senior 1 Championship, having only secured the Senior 2 title last year. But this is the first time in the top flight final since completing a championship treble back in 1991. That day they beat Parnells to complete the three in a row.

They went on to plough a path through Leinster, beating Clara of Offaly in the provincial final. But their Championship came to an upsetting end losing to Kerry Champions Dr. Crokes by a solitary score in the All Ireland Final in 1992.

Ballyboden St. Endas last lifted the Clery’s Cup in 2015 beating St. Vincents by 2-08 to 0-10. Like Thomas Davis, they too carved a path to lift the Leinster Championship. But they went one better, defeating Mayo’s Castlebar St. Michels to become All Ireland Champions.
