LEINSTER GAA HAS confirmed that the throw-in times for this weekend’s Leinster SFC semi-finals have been pushed back due to Ireland facing France in the last 16 of Euro 2016 on Sunday afternoon.

Ireland will take on the hosts after securing a shock 1-0 win against Italy tonight, which earned them a knockout fixture in Lyon on Sunday at 2pm.

As a result, the Croke Park fixtures — Kildare v Westmeath (2pm) and Dublin v Meath (4pm) — have been deferred to 4.15pm and 6.35pm respectively.

Both matches will still be shown on RTÉ 1.
