Gilroy to run rule over Leinster in Dubs clash

THE Leinster footballers' preparation for their inter-provincial campaign begins in earnest with two challenge games on consecutive Friday nights.

Gilroy's side will face Dublin tonight in Parnell Park with throw-in at 7.30 and, in a week's time, they'll take on Meath in Pairc Tailteann.

The games will give Gilroy and his management team of Sean Boylan and Mickey Whelan the chance to run the rule over their side ahead of their clash with Connacht on Sunday, February 17.

Admission to both games is free.
