Poll: Who do you think will reach the EirGrid All-Ireland U21 football final?

Dublin, Mayo, Cork and Monaghan are all bidding to advance.

THE PLACES IN the EirGrid All-Ireland U21 football final are up for grabs this weekend.

There’s a double-header of action tomorrow in O’Connor Park in Tullamore.

First up it’s the meeting of Dublin and Mayo at 2.45pm followed by the clash of Cork and Monaghan at 4.30pm.

Dublin have been hugely successful of late in this grade, contesting and winning finals in 2010, 2012 and 2014. Mayo must go back to 2006 for their last All-Ireland final appearance when a win over Cork in Ennis saw them crowned champions.

Cork last featured in an All-Ireland U21 final in 2013 when they were defeated by Galway. For Monaghan there is the chance to break new ground as they  have never contested a final at this level.

But we want to know who do you think will win the semi-final ties? Let us know.
