No5.
Dublin 3-19 v 1-10 Derry 2014 National League final
One of the Best team performances, clinical all over the pitch that day.

No4.
Dublin 2-20 v 2-13 Cork 2014 National League Semi Final
10 points behind early in the second half to turn the game around in 30 minutes and win by 7 points was unreal.

No3.
Dublin 3-15 v 1-14 Mayo 2015 All Ireland Semi Final Replay
A second half that saw a titanic battle settled with 3 goals in the last 15 minutes topped by a cracker by macker.

No2.
Dublin 0-22 v 2-14 Kerry 2016 All Ireland Semi Final
A game we had to win twice, after being in total control to being in a spot of trouble by half time,
we just kept coming and timed it to perfection topped off by two memorable points from macker and dermo.

No1.
Dublin 3-18 v 3-11 Kerry 2013 All Ireland Semi Final
The best game of football I have ever seen, the game that just kept giving from start to finish
with thirty seconds of pure theatre that ultimatly decided the outcome from mdma's heroic palm forward between two kerry players
that allowed macker do what he does best hit the back of the net to send Croke Park into raptures

Yea,all great victories in their own right.My personnel favourite was reeling in Kerry's 5 point lead in this years semi-final.They really thought they had us at half-time,i feel.The late flurry of scores from Kev Mac,O Gara and Diiarmuid will live ling in the memory.

I'd have the AIF 15 on that list. Not the most spectacular but marked Dublin as a great team and the for the 1st time comprehensively beat Kerry ( except on score board ) Also u can't beat a final in teaming rain!
