Like the men's competition, the ladies Gaelic football Leinster final will be between Dublin and Meath after they beat Laois and Westmeath respectively.

Dublin had a 2-11 to 1-10 win over the O'Moore County -- Amy Ring and Amy McGuinness with the goals. Laois's green flag came from Mary Kirwan, who scored 1-3.

Despite being down to 13 players at one stage, Meath beat neighbours Westmeath by 2-7 to 0-8. Mary Sheridan got both of the Royals' goals, while Katie O'Brien scored four points.

Donegal will meet Monaghan in the Ulster final after a 3-16 to 1-6 win over Tyrone, Geraldine McLoughlin and Roisin Curran their main scorers.

On Friday night, All-Ireland champions Cork kept themselves on course for a ninth successive Munster title as they enjoyed a routine 1-19 to 0-11 victory over Clare.

In the Aisling McGing Championship final yesterday evening, a hat-trick of goals from Nicole Owens helped Dublin to a 3-9 to 0-13 win against Kerry.
