Yeah was fairly fabulous alright.

Can I be the first to beg for tickets if any are going?

Even a novice like me knows that was a Great match, the Kerry attackers were superb but Dublin fitness and strength told in the end. Best sporting match of any kind I saw this weekend.

Can Dublin play as well again in the final? what a match that will be .

well played to both sides , shame someone had to lose

Well done to the Dubs.
Its going to be a great final. Both teams play an attacking fast game.

That was a great game. I'm a complete and utter fair weather fan when it comes to Gaelic Games, but the Dubs have been playing first rate stuff in both codes this summer. Long may it last!

I was almost able to appreciate why anybody would be a Gaelic Football fan after watching that game. But then I remembered the 1000 sh!t football games I've seen!!

Great spectacle, football as it should be played from both teams. Final should hopefully be more of the same.

Hopefully it means the end of the type of football espoused by the likes of Mickey Harte (or "two parts of the body" as my nephew calls him.)

I believe Kerry are being Toulouse from the 2011 SF (ie not making a hullabaloo about it) and Rory Carroll is a very lucky SO'B.
The sport that unites Catholic, Protestant and dissenter has had its day of days. Pity anybody who can't enjoy it. Some day.

Looking for a couple of tickets for the All Ireland final on Sunday. If anyone hears of any spares going, I'd be very grateful!

Struggling to get sorted through the usual sources.
