Galway's 21 year wait

Galway and Kerry will contest the GAA football All-Ireland senior final on Sunday week for the first time since 2000.

On that occasion it took a replay to separate them, but in the end it was the Kingdom who prevailed with a four-point win.

Kerry, last in the final in 2019 where they lost to Dublin in a replay, are looking for their first crown since 2014; Galway are making first appearance in the final last winning the title last in 2001.

Galway and Kerry last met in the championship in 2018 when the Tribesmen won a ‘Super 8’ clash by three points. Prior to that, Kerry had won six and drawn one of seven championship meetings with Galway between 1984 and 2017.

This will be the first All-Ireland final between the Connacht and Munster champions since 2004 when Kerry beat Mayo.
