Tuairisc: Cill Dara V Baile Átha Cliath (report by Mick Moriart   18/07/2017


Tá Craobh Laighean buaite ag  Baile Átha Cliath don seachtú huair as a chéile, gaisce nach ndearnadh riamh roimhe seo, ach ní fheicfidh muid Jim Gavin ag déanamh mórán ceiliúrtha agus cluichí níos tábhachtaí ar a aire. 


Dublin have won the Leinster title for a seventh time in a row, a feat that has never happened before, but we won’t see Jim Gavin celebrate much with more important games on his mind.


D’aimsigh Cill Dara 1-21 agus 2-16 sa dá chluiche craoibhe a bhí buaite acu in 2017. Inniu scór siad 1-17 in aghaidh Baile Átha Cliath ach níor leor é leis an gcluiche a bhuachan. Bhí rudaí níos deacra ag Cill Dara ná in aghaidh Laoise agus in aghaidh na Mí, agus iad ag tabhairt aghaidh ar fhoireann a measadh, ó tús na craoibhe, a bheith ar cheann de na cinn is láidre sa tír.


Kildare scored 1-21 and 2-16 in the two championship games that they have won in 2017. Today they scored 1-17 against Dublin but it wasn’t enough to win the game. Things were more difficult for Kildare than against Laois and Meath, facing a team considered, from the beginning of the championship, to be one of the strongest in the country.


Rinne tosaithe Baile Átha Cliath slad ar chosantóirí Chill Dara sa chéad fiche nóiméad agus dhá chúl sa deichiú agus aonú nóiméad déag. Tosc go raibh an scór 2 -04 in aghaidh 0 -01, níor tháinig líonrith orthu agus d’imigh Cill Dara i bhfad níos fearr le cúilíní ó Feely, Slattery and Flynn. Ag leath am ní raibh ach ceithre chúilín eatharthu agus fuair Daniel Flynn ceann de na cúiliní is fearr sa bhliain nuair a scóráil sé ó chic in aice leis an taobhlíne. Sa dara leath ní raibh an t-ádh linn ar chor ar bith mar gheall ar cúl a fháil agus tharraing BÁC siar uainn de réir a chéile.


The Dublin forwards wrecked havoc with the Kildare backs in the first twenty minutes with two goals in the tenth and eleventh minutes. Although the score was 2-04 to 0-01, Kildare didn’t panic and they played much better with points from Feely, Slattery and Flynn. At half time there was only four points between the teams and Daniel Flynn got one of the best points of the year when he scored from near the sideline. In the second half we didn’t have any luck scoring a goal and Dublin pulled away bit by bit.


Tá dhá ardú céime as a chéile bainte amach ag Cill Dara sa tsraith agus thug siad taispeántais chumasacha uathu. Tá rudaí ag feabhsú céim ar chéim.

Kildare have had two promotions back to back in the league and given capable displays. Incremental improvement is happening.
