KERRY AND MAYO will meet in the All-Ireland junior final after their respective wins today.

The Kingdom earned a 4-17 to 3-10 victory against Lancashire to book their spot, while Mayo beat Wexford by 2-10 to 0-10.

The game between the two will take place on 6 August, with the venue and time yet to be confirmed.

Goals from Kevin O’Sullivan, Kieran Hurley, Niall O’Shea and Robert Wharton inspired Kerry to a convincing win in Manchester.

The game had been in the balance at half-time, with a Darren Russell goal helping Lancashire to go in level, with the score 1-6 to 0-9, but the favourites were increasingly dominant thereafter, ultimately securing a 10-point win.

Meanwhile, Mayo also earned a convincing victory at the expense of Wexford in the day’s other semi-final at O’Connor Park, Tullamore.

It had been a tight contest, with the Heather County leading 0-7 to 0-4 at the break, before four unanswered points by Wexford saw them secure a one-point advantage 10 minutes into the second half.

However, subsequent goals by Conor Keane and Sean Gaughan proved pivotal, as Mayo reached another final.
