All roads lead to Croker today as Kildare senior men's team take on the might of Monaghan at 2pm in the first of the Super 8s. Well, not quite all roads - as the ladies intermediate team will be lining out at 2pm in Baltinglass, Co Wicklow (note, not Crettyard as previoualy advised), kick off also 2pm.
Shame the two major fixtures had to clash. Daniel Moynihan's side will have it all to to do, having lost out to Wexford in the opening round of the Leinster Championship and with Wexford having beaten Kildare on three occasions this year.
Despite their uphill task today, the mood in the camp is realistic but optimistic.

The Kildare minor ladies feature in one of the biggest games on the ladies calendar this weekend, as they go in search of All-Ireland glory. Gavan Doyle's side will play Roscommon in Moate at 2pm in the All-Ireland Minor B final.
After a great win by the minors in the Leinster semi final against Wicklow on Friday evening, followed by the U20s' procurement yesterday of a place in the All-Ireland against Mayo, it has been a great weekend for Kildare GAA football.
Let's hope we can keep it going this afternoon! Nothing is surmountable in the Kildare camp at the moment.
