Speaking of Kerry, they are importing more of their talent to foreign shores. Only recently weve had Jack O Connor and Paul Galvin installed in Kildare and Wexford with a report tonight saying Micheál Quirke is off to Laois.

Whatever they spent 'twas worth it. Great to see an outstanding team with an equally outstanding manager make history.
Don't forget how much Kerry spent keeping Clifford out of Australia?
Great to shut the feckers up. Cillian O Connor Mayo leading scorer and now the Dubs are Kings of the castle.
This winter will be special in spite of our Division 3 status.

Does anyone in thier right mind really believe Dublin would have won all those All-Ireland's without all the funding from GAA HQ?

Im involved in a club Junior Club in Dublin. I would make the following observations.

We do not directly see direct fruits of finance. Each team has a person in charge. You can be lucky/unlucky depending on the quality of the head Dad....

The amount of non dublin accents on sidelines. It is the outsiders making Dublin GAA strong. Loook at Declan Darcy....

Gaelic games have become Middle Class and now the ross o carroll kellys are keen in away they never were before. So rugby is more the bedfellow than soccer. By bedfellow I mean the second sport.

Delighted to see Dublin make history,great football team to watch,1.17 tonight from play says it all.It certainly takes money to win an All Ireland thats evidenced by the recent wins of Limerick and this year Tipperary in hurling. The Dublin footballers are terrific athletes,are very humble and do their business in a very professional way.

Yes, they are outstanding, great footballers, play a great brand of football and seem to be a bunch of decent guys headed by a humble manager. Delighted for them. Even more delighted for Kerry.

And so say all of us. Wouldn't mind seeing them add a few more but not at our expense of course.
They'll be digging up Joe Keoghane and Paddy Bawn in the hills this winter.
We'll hear about all the pints they drank and the turf they cut on the mornings of All Irelands. :D :D :D

Their captain is even more humble, and didn't make one mistake during the match. I don't know about you but I am going for a good night's sleep. Bring on 2020.
