Another chapter to the Dublin and Mayo Football saga will grip the country again this Sunday. With these two teams going to a final replay where they were separated by a solitary point in last year’s All-Ireland. Consequently this group of players are no strangers to each other.


A number of these players studied together and played on the DIT Sigerson Football team while students here at DIT. Seven of the sixteen students represented DIT in a Sigerson Final in 2009 and 2013. I'm sure all of these college friendships will be put on hold for the seventy or whatever number of minutes it will take to separate these sides on Sunday.
