  • Up for grabs Mayo will look to pressurise Ciaran Kilkenny

Losing Jack McCaffrey to a knee injury in the ninth minute didn't help and Mayo, for all their excellence in the middle third where Aidan O'Shea and Tom Parsons were superb, finally went ahead in the 20th minute after Andy Moran punished a poor Dublin kick-out.

It all came down to that high-pressure free, after a foul on substitute Dairmuid Connolly, and Rock converted to give the Dubs their first three-in-a-row since the 1920s.

The two red cards in the 47th minute will be debated for days, with Mayo supporters perhaps believing Vaughan's needless sending-off could have cost them a historic victory.

Con O'Callaghan and Eoghan O'Gara managed to secure the two goals for Dublin.

"Man of the match from a Mayo point of view".

Build that wall? Supporters question Trump's priorities
But yeah, I mean, look, it was the first time in CACI's history, its 40-year history, that we didn't invite the sitting president. But it appears now that funding for a border wall could be a sticking point.


But Jim Gavin knew his team was in trouble and had already looked to the bench at half-time, drafting in Kevin McMenamon and Diarmuid Connolly, the former proving to be a key figure and the latter earning the free which was to ultimately seal the championship for Dublin.

They had Dublin rattled and continued to rattle them as the second half developed, with the defence - and Chris Barrett in particular - all superb, while both Stephen Cluxton and David Clarke were called into action.

Arguably the match was over after 5 minutes when Dublin scored a goal and never looked back with an unassailable lead from there on out. As it stands, Mayo lead 0-09 to 1-05.

Donal Vaughan of Mayo is tackled by Con O'Callaghan of Dublin.
