Dublin beat Kildare for the second year in a row to claim their third Leinster U-21 title in as many years in what will go down as one of the best Leinster finals in recent memory. 

Despite Kildare getting off to the better start and dominating most of the first half, Dublin rallied and brought the game to extra time. A Cillian O'Shea goal in extra time was enough to ensure the title would be staying in the capital on a scoreline of 2-13 to 0-17. Cuala's Con O'Callaghan was crowned man of the match.
