ONCE THE DUST settles on Dublin’s outstanding victory over Kerry today, the focus will turn to the third Sunday in September.
Dublin’s win over Kerry an epic semi-final confirms their passage to the All-Ireland SFC final, where they’ll face Mayo.
Mayo and Dublin will meet in a repeat of the 2013 decider when Dublin had a point to spare in a 2-12 to 1-14 victory.
It’s the third time the counties face-off in a final. Their first clash was way back in the 1921 final, which was actually played on 17 June 1923. Dublin ran out 1-9 to 0-2 winners that day.
Dublin needed a replay to edge past Mayo in last year’s semi-final after two epic contests.
Mayo are seeking to win their first final since 1951, having lost All-Ireland finals in ’89, ’96, ’97, ’04, ’06, ’12 and ’13.
Dublin are aiming to win back-to-back All-Ireland finals for the first time since 1977, and become the first county to do so since Kerry in 2007.
