DUBLIN vs GALWAY (Sunday, 28th May – 4pm Tullamore) Galway’s stock is up as they begin their attempt for a first All-Ireland title since 1988.

DAVID BURKE (Galway) There’s a reason the St. Thomas’ man is Galway’s captain – he’s probably the most consistent player to don the maroon and white colours since the 80s.

Looking over the Dublin squad, a frightening thought came to us. Michael Darragh Macauley is a massive loss and a certainty in any other county team. But he didn’t start last year’s All-Ireland final – which Dublin won! It’s a blow for Jim Gavin, but it’s not the end of the world!
