DUBLIN CORNER BACK Michael Fitzsimons was named as the man of the match after today’s dramatic All-Ireland SFC final replay.

Mayo pushed Dublin to the 78th minute of the encounter, but lost out by a single point to Jim Gavin’s men.

It was a thrilling match with no shortage of excellent performances from both sides. But it was Fitzsimons, a late addition to the starting team today, who earned the highest praise from the RTE panel for his performance.
