Dublin completed the historic five in a row after a pulsating All-Ireland final replay win over arch rivals Kerry.
It all came tumbling down in the 12 minutes after the second half started - after top class first half display that saw them lead by two points at the break, Mayo found themselves trailing by ten points and down and out of the championship for the year.
They came in their thousands and thousands across the Atlantic. Flights from New York, Shannon and wherever else possible carried the faithful in their droves.
The Dubs drive for five is well and truly under way after they comprehensively defeated Tyrone in last Sunday's final to claim a record equalling fourth title in a row.
The Galway senior footballers are in action this Saturday evening (6pm) in Salthill against Monaghan in the final game of the All-Ireland quarter-finals. It will also be Galway’s last home game of the season so all maroon GAA supporters should make the effort to get to Pearse Stadium to cheer their side on.

The Galway footballers will be fully aware Stephen Rochford and his Mayo squad will have all their guns locked and fully loaded to try to knock them out of the Connacht championship this Sunday in McHale Park (4pm).
What a difference a week makes. The Jekyll and Hyde side of Mayo football was never so evident as in their last three performances. Mayo put in a real gutsy performance against Tyrone in sun-drenched Healy Park Omagh last weekend to boost our chances of survival in the top flight. I wondered was it the same team that played Cavan the previous week. The football wasn't brilliant but this was all about the result. Mayo will probably still have to beat Donegal on Sunday to guarantee safety, as a confident Cavan will surely beat a demoralised Roscommon.
Westport are the All-Ireland intermediate football champions after a pulsating win over St Colmcille's of Meath. It was hearts in mouths stuff at the bitter end as a Colmcille's player lofted a ball towards the Westport goal mouth only for stand in keeper Aaron Dunne to calmly clear his lines. The final whistle was blown immediately afterwards.
Mayo's 2017 league opener ended in defeat to an aggressive and physical Monaghan in Castlebar last Saturday evening. Despite my declaration last week that Mayo should target the national league for silverware, the target very much now is about survival. Again applause must be given to the 11,000 or so hardy souls who turned out to support the team. The basis for this first round defeat is pure and simple, Monaghan were better prepared and had a better pre season as it was purely obvious going into the final quarter that they had spent more time on the paddock than Stephen Rochford's team.
