The team shows just one change from that battling 0-12 to 0-11 semi final victory over Mayo with Abi Whelan (Castlemitchell), who came on as a substitute against Mayo, retaining her place and Grace Mountaine (Sarsfields) listed among the substitutes.

Kildare’s scores last time out came from Aoife Murnane, 0-3, Caoimhe Egan, 0-3, Julie Brannigan, 0-2, Tara Rafferty, 0-2 (2fs), Aine McNally, 0-1 and Abaigh Cahill, 0-1.

The team is superbly led by Zara Hurley from full back.

Tipperary defeated Donegal in the other semi final on a scoreline of 4-14 to 2-8 with captain, Ciara O’Hora scoring 1-6, Emer Dwan, 1-4 and Ciara Shelly 2-0 so they will need watching.

The game is a repeat of the U14 All Ireland Gold Final which was won by Kildare.
