THE LINE-UP for the quarter-finals of the Dublin Senior Football Championship has been confirmed, as Kilmacud Crokes and Ballyboden St Enda’s ensured their progression on Friday night.

They join St. Jude’s, St. Sylvester’s, defending champions St. Vincent’s, Na Fianna, Castleknock and Ballymun Kickhams in the first knockout round, with the final set of group games taking place today all acting as dead rubbers.

Crokes ensured their place in the final eight with a 0-7 to 0-4 victory against Raheny in Bargriffin.

With Raheny failing to beat Crokes, a 0-13 to 2-7 draw was enough to see Ballyboden through to this year’s quarter-finals.

Ballymun and St Jude’s will go into the last eight on a winning note following Sunday’s final round of group games.

Kickhams defeated Castleknock 2-13 to 1-13, with Footballer of the Year nominee Dean Rock netting near the end of the first half to swing the contest the hosts’ way, as they took a 1-7 to 0-7 lead into half-time.

St Brigid’s rounded off their Championship campaign with a 2-16 to 0-10 win over Clontarf with Lorcan McCarthy and Niall Davey hitting the net in O’Toole Park.

Meanwhile a draw with Skerries yesterday was enough to take Na Fianna into the quarter-final line-up thanks to already-qualified St Vincent’s commanding win over Lucan Sarsfields to round off Group 2.
