We’ll be live from Croke Park this afternoon as Dublin attempt the Five in A Row in the All Ireland Senior Football Final
Dublin v Kerry
Sunday, September 1st. 3:30pm
Croke Park Dublin.
Months of preperation, game time, and many miles travelled. 70 minutes of football will decide this year’s All Ireland Champions. History beckons for Jim Gavin and his four in a row winning side. But there’s a Kerry side waiting in the long grass. A county that have been here before. Will history have a new chapter?
Dublin v Kerry always carries deep meaning and the upcoming encounter is no different. The stakes are piled seriously high with Sam Maguire the much coveted prize for the victor.
Dublin are on the verge of collection a fifth All Ireland title on the spin. Talk of realising that feat has been kept to a minimum by Dublin’s players and management. Dublin’s focus has stayed firm throughout the summer. Each and every hurdle has been cleared thus far.
Kerry know all about drives for five with 1982 remaining one of the most memorable September deciders for a plethora of reasons.
Will Kerry be the team to deny Dublin this weekend? Peter Keane’s first campaign in charge has injected hope and optimism.
But even since Dublin last drew with an opponent, their game plan and shape has again changed. They seem to evolve after every hard lesson and grow into an even bigger monster for their opponents to attempt to figure out.
Hopefully by 5pm this evening we’ll see some white smoke, or perhaps blue. But until then there’s a build up to be enjoyed.
