Galway travel to Glennon Brothers Pearse Park in Longford tomorrow for the LGFA Minor A All Ireland final.
This fixture features Galway, runners-up in 2022, against Kildare, who are appearing in a very first Minor A Final.
In total, this will be an 11th A Final appearance for Galway, who have been crowned champions previously in 2018, 2014, 2013, 2010, 2005 and 2002.
Kildare’s march to a first Minor A Final is an historic achievement and indicative of the great work being done in the county, with the Lilywhites also preparing for a TG4 All-Ireland Intermediate Final on Sunday August 13.
Kildare were All-Ireland Minor B champions in 2018 and they’ll aim now to seal A glory at the first attempt, having lost out at the semi-final stage to Galway last year.
Galway and Kildare are fresh from their respective semi-final victories over Monaghan and Cork.
