Kildare scored a 21 to 19 point win over Mayo at St Conleth's Park this evening
Kildare sent Mayo home from fortress St Conleth's Park this evening after a thrilling, dramatic two point win over the west of Ireland men in Round Three of the football qualifiers.
This evening's win was the fairytale ending to a rollercoaster week for the Lilywhites. Their #NewbridgeOrNowhere standoff with Croke Park over their refusal to play the qualifier at Headquarters when they were entitled to a home advantage drew support from the entire country.
The game ended in a nailbiting eight minutes of injury time with a wall of Kildare defenders deflecting over a Mayo free to maintain the Lilywhites' slim lead.
Kildare's Round 4 opponents will be drawn on Monday morning.
