That's all from us. Thanks for joining us for our live updates on today's games.

17:45

Dublin now advance into the All-Ireland quarter-finals while Kildare must come through a Round 4 qualifier in order to advance into the last eight. The backdoor draw takes place tomorrow morning.

17:42

However, nine points separated the teams in the end and, in truth, Jim Gavin's men always looked comfortable once James McCarthy fired in their second goal early in the first-half.

17:41

The All-Ireland champions simply had too much firepower for the Lilywhites but Cian O'Neill men can be proud of their effort. Not too many teams manage 1-17 against the Dubs...

17:32

17:27

17:24

Kevin Feely's afternoon is over after picking up a black card. He has been Kildare's best player today.

16:59

The Cuala man converts and it's 2-9 to 0-10 in the capital men's favour.

16:58

Philly McMahon is brought down in front of the posts and this should be bread and butter for O'Callaghan.

The second-half is now underway...

16:55

By the way, the official attendance at Croke Park is 66,734.

16:55

Kildare are back out now and there don't look to be any changes on either team.

16:55

Dublin have been out on the pitch a couple of minutes now while Cian O'Neill has kept his players in the dressing room.

16:54

We're back! Can Kildare pull it off here or will the Dubs hit another gear on them?

16:39

Stay tuned for more second-half updates...

16:38

Cian O'Neill will have been disappointed with the concession of two goals in the space of a minute but his side have looked brilliant in the last 10 minutes. Will they lift it even more of the second-half?

16:37

Half-time: Dublin 2-8 Kildare 0-10

16:20

Cuala man Con O'Callaghan with the Dubs' latest point.

Daniel Flynn looked like having a scoring chance there but he was met brilliantly by James McCarthy and the Dubs add to their tally at the other end instead.

16:17

Wides from Brian Fenton and Kilkenny let the Lilywhites off the hook. They trail by eight with 17 minutes played.

16:16

Cian O'Sullivan is also cautioned as 15 minutes elapse since Kildare's last score.

16:13

Keith Cribbin picks up a yellow card for the trailers.

What a hammer blow for Kildare as James McCarthy cuts in for Dublin's second goal in a minute - 2-3 to 0-1.

GOAL FOR DUBLIN!

Dean Rock peels away, sent through by Kilkenny, and the Ballymun Kickhams slots a low finish to Kildare's net.

15:51

It's McMahon's first start of this year's championship, having missed out on the wins over Carlow and Westmeath.

15:50

Dublin boss Jim Gavin has made two late changes: Philly McMahon and John Small will start while Darren Daly and Eoghan O'Gara drop to the bench.

15:48

Still plenty of updates to come here, with just over to go until throw-in between Dublin and Kildare in the Leinster SFC final.

15:47

Eamonn Burns' men now face a qualifier clash with either Monaghan or Armagh which will provide their opponents with plenty of incentive for revenge. Their season is far from over but they'll have to lift themselves from this.

15:46

After a decent opening 35 minutes, Down were simply outclassed in the second-half and a black card to midfield stalwart Kevin McKernan didn't help their cause.

15:44

The victory marks Mickey Harte's sixth Anglo-Celt Cup success and could well be Sean Cavanagh's last provincial final appearance. The Moy man will make his way to the podium for the second successive year soon.

15:43

Full-time: Tyrone 2-17 Down 0-15

Tyrone retain their Ulster crown and deserving so! The Red Hands were ruthless in the second-half and didn't even require Ronan O'Neill's pair of goals in the end.

15:35

Daragh O'Hanlon's third brings us into seven minutes of injury-time at 2-15 to 0-11.

15:34

A bloodied Poland is escorted off and gets a nice rounds applauds.

15:31

Down sub Mark Poland ships a knock to the head on the way down from a tackle and some handbags ensue. Poland has a nasty cut after that one.

15:29

GOAL FOR TYRONE!

O'Neill grabs his second and that's that. The Tyrone substitute with a cheeky chip over Cunningham to pile on the misery for Eamonn Burns' men.

15:28

No doubt over which was the better team in the Leinster MFC final. Congrats to Dublin on their 33rd win.

15:27

15:17

Three more on the bounce from Tyrone and they're opponents have no answer - 0-14 to 0-5.

15:15

15:13

We're close to the second-half throw-in in Clones, where the official attendance is 31,912!

14:55

Another John Gallagher free narrows Louth's deficit to 12.

14:52

One could picture Down manager Eamonn Burns being happy with the situation heading into the second-half but they can expect much better from Tyrone over the next 35 minutes.

We'll be back with more updates soon...

14:42

Half-time: Tyrone 0-7 Down 0-5

Tyrone started well but it hasn't all gone to script for Mickey Harte's men as Down could well be in front. Somehow Daragh O'Hanlon sent his goal chance wide and it's all to play for in Clones in the second-half.

14:40

We're close to the short whistle in Clones as Gerard McGovern and Sean Cavanagh both pick up cautions.

14:40

Bradley slips Donnelly through and the Trillick man fists to move Tyrone back in front by two.

14:38

Kieran McGeary has just been black carded for a needless drag down on Gerard McGovern.

14:38

Considering how close he was to goal that really should have been in the net from O'Hanlon. There's just over a minute of injury-time left in Clones.

14:36

Daragh O'Hanlon smashes a glorious goal chance wide for Down! How has he missed it?

14:35

The Dubs have been totally dominant and Louth have a real uphill battle in trying to deny the capital lads their county's 33rd Leinster minor football title.

14:27

Sean Hawkshaw stretches the Dublin lead to eight.

David Lacey notches his second and it's 2-6 to 0-5 in Dublin's favour in the Leinster MFC final.

14:16

Ryan Johnston lands Down's second but these first 15 minutes haven't been easy on the eye so far in Clones.

14:14

It's now 10 minutes since Down got their first (and only) score from Shay Millar.

14:12

Tyrone's backs have been winning their battles for far as Colm Cavanagh takes a careless pass from Harrison and possession finds Mattie Donnelly, who slots over.

14:10

Dublin 2-3 Louth 0-1

McGarry hits his third points as the Dubs lead by eight at headquarters.

13:54

Five minutes to the throw-ins at St Tiernach's Park and Croke Park...

13:51

Down are bidding for their first Anglo-Celt Cup success since 1994. A win today would see crowned provincial champions for the 13th time.

13:50

The Red Hands have collected four Ulster crowns since, including last year's title when they defeated Donegal late on in Clones.

13:49

Tyrone and Down last clashed in the Ulster final back in 2003 when Mickey Harte's men recorded their county's first ever All-Ireland triumph.

13:47

Eamonn Burns has made one late change to the Down side and it sees Peter Turley start instead of Joe Murphy at right half-forward.

13:46

Conditions are beautiful at St Tiernach's Park and a huge crowd has made it's way to the Clones venue this afternoon.

13:45

We'll bring you updates in the minor clash at 2pm with the focus on the senior clash in Clones.

13:44

While the seniors are going for a historic seventh Leinster title in-a-row, Dublin's minors are looking for their 33rd this afternoon. A win for Louth would mark their ninth and first since 1953!

13:41

Louth boss Wayne Kierans will no doubt be confident his side can spring an upset at Croker.

13:40

Odds in minor games are no more but you can be sure that Louth are rank outsides in their Leinster final against Dublin. Throw-in in that one is 20 minutes away...

13:37

11/2 odds may be too hard for some Mourne fans to resist considering the performance they put in against Monaghan last month.

13:36

Odds: Tyrone 1/6; Down 11/2; Draw 12/1

13:35

The big game in Clones is 25 minutes away from throw-in now and Tyrone are rank favourites to retain their Ulster crown.

13:26

13:25

Ulster minor football champions 2017!

13:22

13:20

13:13

12:43

We're back...

12:33

Be sure to stay with us for more second-half updates...

12:33

James Smith's black card is a big blow for Cavan but they've proven in their last two games that they are a second-half team. Can they pull off another come back here?

12:32
