Monday saw the quarter-final draw for the All-Ireland Football Championship provide some surprises in the form of a duo who would be facing off against each other.
It was a mirror image of the 2021 semi-finals, and it will see Kerry Face Tyrone and Dublin once again find themselves up against Mayo.
The latter of the two clashes will be the highlight of the weekend for many fans and it’ll all be happening on Sunday, after the match that will see a clash between Derry and Cork.
It looks like tickets will soon be gone, so fans need to make sure that they secure their seats the moment the tickets are released at 5 pm on Monday. You can make your coveted purchaser right here.
After the draw, which was broadcast on RTE’s Morning Ireland, the former manager of Kerry, Eamon Fitzmaurice commented that the Dublin v Mayo clash is a “huge game obviously.”
He further commented on the nature of the rivalry that exists between the two counties, which stretches back to the last time the two teams met. He remarked that Dublin had the advantage over their opponents for the “bones of a decade.” He further stated that the upcoming game was one that fans should wait for with eager anticipation.
He noted that both teams that would be on the field would no doubt mirror the outcome of Galway-Mayo yesterday and that both are both hugely motivated teams, but were at risk of exiting after the quarter-final stage was concluded.
He concluded by saying that Dublin was in a prime position after the weekend, however, he questioned whether Mayo would have the energy to continue their current form. However, he did add that the sight of the Dublin team running onto the field would serve to motivate them.
