IT IS A repeat of the 2013 All-Ireland Final as Dublin and Mayo go head-to-head once again in the next installment of their ever-growing rivalry.

Sam will either be staying in the capital for the second year in a row, and for the third time in the last five years, or heading West with green and red ribbons for the first time since 1951.

Dublin have dominated the previous 12 encounters between the two sides, winning seven, drawing three and losing only twice.

Can the Dubs add to their fine record against Mayo, or will the bridesmaids of recent championships finally have their day of glory?

The minor decider sees Kerry, who are in search of their third consecutive All-Ireland title, up against a Galway side who are hoping to secure their first All-Ireland since 2002.

Kerry go into this one on the back of a 22-point demolition of Kildare while Galway saw off the threat of Donegal four weeks ago on a final score of 2-12 to 1-11.

The history books say one thing, but we want to know can you forecast the victors of this afternoon’s matches? Let us know.
