Leinster GAA have confirmed that they will change the throw-in times for the Leinster football championship semi-finals because of Ireland's Euro 2016 knockout match against France.

Kildare v Westmeath will now take place at 4.15pm and Dublin v Meath is now set for 6.35pm, both on Sunday.

They had been due to take place at 2pm and 4pm originally.

That's because Ireland play France in the last-16 at Euro 2016 at 2pm on Sunday.

"As a result of Ireland qualifying for the Knockout stages in Euro 2016, Leinster GAA have now switched the times for the Leinster Senior Football Championship Semi Finals scheduled for Croke Park on Sunday next," Leinster GAA confirmed.
