ANOTHER LEAGUE FINAL battle between Dublin and Kerry will take centre stage in Croke Park next weekend in the 2017 Allianz football league finals.

The pairings were confirmed after today’s final round of games in the Allianz football league with Galway and Kildare set to reprise today’s clash in Salthill in the Division 2 decider next Sunday.

While three Leinster counties – Louth, Westmeath and Wexford – are also heading to Croke Park along with last year’s All-Ireland semi-finalists Tipperary.
