Liam Hassett scored a fine goal while Aodhán MacGearailt and Johnny Crowley hit 1-3 each to ensure there wasn't an upset on the cards.

Kerry led 1-7 to 0-3 at the interval but they upped the intensity in the second half and Clare fell away.

Armagh retained their Ulster crown after edging Derry in a thriller at Clones.

Anthony Tohill had a chance to level matters deep into time added on but he missed a free - albeit from 55 yards.

Steven McDonnell's 13th-minute goal settled the Orchard County's early nerves and after going into the break two points up, they never looked back.

In his first Championship start, Pádraig Brennan repaid the Kildare selectors' faith in him as he scored eight points to help the Lilywhites into the Leinster final to face Dublin.

Kildare scored 12 points without reply as Offaly crucially lost their way from the 30th to the 62nd minutes.
