Kildare manager Glenn Ryan says his side will need to produce an even better performance to be crowned Leinster champions this year.

The Lilywhites booked their place in the provincial final following a 2 point win over Westmeath in today's semi-final at Croke Park.

Ryan says they'll need something special to get past the Sky Blues.

Derry will face Donegal in the Ulster Senior Football Final.

That is after the Oak Leaf County got past Monaghan in their semi-final 3-12 to 17 points.

Benny Heron scored two goals to send Rory Gallagher's men into the decider.

Limerick will take on Clare in the Munster Senior Hurling Final.

The defending champions will face the Banner once again after both sides played out a 1-21 to 24 point draw in Ennis.
