All-Ireland champions Dublin too good for Walsh's men

image preview

Travelling up the motorway on Saturday afternoon to Croke Park for the All-Ireland semi-final, we listened to Padraic Joyce (Galway), Dick Clerkin (Monaghan) and Liam Kearns (Tipperary manager) on Off the Ball on Newstalk to pass an hour of the journey, and all three pointed out that Galway would have to produce an exceptional performance to keep the Dubs at bay.

It just wasn’t to be for brave and battling Mayo

Sometimes it’s not about being the better team, it’s about finding ways to win games when you are probably second best on the day. Dublin were able to do that, they were able to get themselves over the line right at the end when it mattered most and they claimed their third All Ireland title in a row.

Marvellous Dubs can make it a three-in-a-row

Between the years 1947 and 1955 Rocky Marciano entered the squared circle 49 times and remained undefeated against all challengers. The reasons are many, including his relentless fighting style, punching power, stamina, and iron chin. However, at the end of his career, 49 pros had thrown everything they had at him, and he always found a way to survive. And win. Retiring with a perfect record 49-0 and an 88 per cent knockout rate, he stands as one of the undisputed greatest boxers of all time. Dublin footballers now stand on the cusp of such immortality with a possible three in a row of titles on the horizon.

While there have been days when things haven't quite gone to plan they have always been "honest" in themselves as a team and that's what has brought them to where they are right now, 70 minutes away from their final goal.

Dublin inflict capital punishment on Mayo

image preview

There was more than an air of hope around the county last week that Mayo could go to Croke Park and drive a knife into the heart of Dublin's 32 game unbeaten run in their own back yard. But from within minutes of the ball being thrown in, those hopes were proved to be idle pleasures of an early spring day dream.
