Dublin: 7°C Tuesday 9 March 2021

Poll: Who do you think will win the 2017 All-Ireland senior football championship?

Dublin are aiming for three-in-a-row but the pretenders to their throne are lining up.

JIM GAVIN’S DUBLIN may have slipped up in their quest for a fifth successive Allianz Football League Division 1 crown but they remain heavy favourites to win another All-Ireland title.

The Sky Blues are gunning for three-in-a-row, and a fifth win in seven years, but they’ll face stiff opposition along the way.

Kerry are now buoyant following that League final win and manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice will feel that they can lift Sam Maguire for the first time since 2014.

Can Mayo, so long the bridesmaids and last year’s beaten finalists after a replay, finally get over the line and bring Sam west of the Shannon for the first time since 1951?

Ulster heavyweights Tyrone and Donegal will both feel that they’re in with a shout while Tipp will hope to go one step further than last year, when they contested an historic semi-final against Mayo.

Or can a bolter emerge from the pack to challenge the established order and make it all the way to Croke Park on 17 September?

But we want to know, who will win the coveted silverware?
