Some huge results for Dublin teams across the week as we round up the Weekly Inter County Results
Wednesday May 3rd 2023
Laois 1-13 Dublin 5-11
Leinster Minor B Ladies Football Semi Final
Firepower was the crucial element in Wednesday night’s Leinster Minor B Ladies Football Semi Final. And thankfully the goals came for Dublin’s young panel as they powered through to book a spot in this year’s B provincial decider.
After bowing out of the Leinster A competition, Fintan O’Curry’s side were hungry to make amends, and that they did in spades. Katie Murphy led the scoring for the girls in bluw with a personal tally of 3-02.
Leading by 2-03 to 0-08 at half time, Dublin opened up a three point lead within 90 seconds of the restart. Laois continued to stay within touching distance, but as additional goals came it saw Dublin continue to grow in confidence. Even a 54th minute converted Laois penalty could slow down Dublin’s drive across the line. And their reward is a Leinster B decider against Wicklow at Bray Emmetts on May 17th.

Kilkenny 4-24 Dublin 1-01
Leinster Intermediate Camogie Championship
Jimmy Greville’s Intermediate Camogie panel exited the Leinster Championship at the Quarter Final stage losing to Kilkenny on a heavy 4-24 to 1-01 scoreline yesterday. That means they now concentrate on their upcoming All Ireland Campaign.
Their first game in that competition will be a rematch of yesterday’s game as they’ll square off against Kilkenny one more time at the end of this month. Kilkenny dominated yesterday’s proceedings from the off. They held an uncatchable lead of 3-16 to no score at half time. Dublin registered 1-01 in the second half but it was an impossible task to catch Kilkenny who finished out the game on 4-24.
Meath 1-07 Dublin 1-23
Leinster Senior Camogie Championship Semi Final
A Leinster Final slot booked in style by Dublin’s Senior Camogie panel after seeing off Meath yesterday to make it two provincial wins from two. They’ll know there’ll be a stiffer challenge when they face Kilkenny in a repeat of last year’s decider but they’ve more then earned their place.
Leading by 6 points at half time, Dublin extended that lead to 14 early on after the restart. Aoife Minogue gave Meath a lifeline in the 43rd minute sending a converted free into the Dublin net. But Dublin struck back in the 53rd when Grace O’Shea finished the ball to the net. And they showed a relentless dogged side we’ve been waiting to see. And they had taken the game away from Meath comfortably to secure a dominant win.
Dublin 3-15 Kildare 4-09
Leinster U16 Ladies Football Final
Trailing by 7 points at half time, Dublin bounced back in Coralstown to beat Kildare and retain their Leinster Crown for another year.
Despite conceding three first half goals, Dublin went on to score a second half hat-trick of their own to deliver provincial silverware, and with it a place in the All-Ireland Series in July.
Corner forward Ciara Brogan received the Player of the Match award, after a solid performance in which she scored 1-6.
Dublin 1-22 Wexford 0-23
Leinster Senior Hurling Championship
A goal from Cian O’Sullivan in the first half and 2 late stoppage time Donal Burke points at the close of yesterday’s game at Croke Park saw Micheál Donoghue’s Senior Hurling panel secure a massivelt important victory over Wexford. And the win keeps their hope alive of securing a knockout spot in the upcoming All Ireland Series.
Burke again put in an inspired performance registering 0-13 of Dublin’s 1-22 securing the player of the match award for his efforts. Wexford never led in yesterday’s game but did manage to tie things up on a number of occasions.
Dublin led narrowly at half time by 1-09 to 0-10 which set the tone for what would be a nail biting second half. And they absorbed all the pressure their guests put on them to hold out and pinch the victory when it counted.

Clare 2-09 Dublin 1-08
All Ireland U16A Camogie Shield Round 1
An unlucky start for Dublin’s U16A Camogie panel as they make their journey in this year’s All Ireland series. Not the beginning they would have wanted losing to Clare by 2-09 to 1-08 but there’s still time to make some in roads in the Shield.
They’ll have some tough tasks ahead as they travel to Antrim for the next round, finishing off with a home tie against Waterford. If they can secure results in both they’ll pave the way to the knock out stages of the competition.
Dublin 3-14 Laois 0-03
Leinster Senior Ladies Football Championship Round 2
Two games, two wins as Mick Bohan’s Senior Ladies Football panel book their place in this year’s Leinster Championship Final. Very much one way traffic for Dublin as Laois wet their feet in the senior grade of the competition. And if anything if gave the Dublin manager breathing room to roll on a large amount of substitutes to assess.
Hannah Tyrrell, Carla Rowe and Kate Sullivan were amongst the goal scorers at DCU St Clare’s this afternoon in game that Dublin never looked like losing. Laois only registered a single point in the first half and double that return after the break.
Despite the scoreline, today was a great test for Dublin net minder Abbey Shiels who pulled off a number of incredible saves to maintain a clean sheet in the match.
A 10th consecutive Leinster title remains on the cards, and after beating Meath last week it would make Dublin strong favourites to retain their provincial crown.
