A real team performance today.
especially after con getting black.
thaught they tackled brilliantly very disciplined. Shot selection was far better than Donegal aswell.
Felt we were by far better team and composed throughout.
byrne had another eye catching performance when he got the ball which they need to get more to him as he has the ability to go through mass defences with tricky footwork.

Didn't anyone else think that Byrne had a very similar style to Kev Mc?

I only watched it on the telly.
But, Dublin looked very comfortable kept Donegal to 5 points when the pressure was on, and let up after they knew the game was won.

I have to admit I was a bit worried when King Cong was sent off for the black early on.

Great win, some fine players on show, was hoping Kerry would win but Galway deservedly took care of them, looking forward to another AI final, well done lads!!

Can you believe some Donegal posters crying about us putting players behind the ball when the whole country knows the way Donegal set up so you just basically copy what they do. The Dublin motm said exactly that. We won without Con , Basqual was shocking I couldn't believe how bad he was he'll be better the next day and Clayton only back from injury came on near the end so will need him v Galway. Byrne at 11 is a future senior star outstanding talent.

What about Brian Howard lads, haven't seen a lad move like that since Fred Astaire.

Yeah, Howard looks like a great prospect for the future, developing very well.

Excellent win today and Without big Con for nearly all of the match.

Hopefully our lads can perform well in the Final.

Didn't think Galway would beat Kerry but it shows how over hyped the Kerry lads were.

Has a venue been decided yet for the final. ??
