CORK ACHIEVED THE feat in 2012 and their opponents Dublin have the chance to emulate them next Sunday in Croke Park.

The two sides face off in this year’s Allianz Division 1 football league final, the glamour game in this weekend’s GAA action.

Dublin are hoping to do a three-in-a-row in the league for the first time in the county’s history with Cork scaling those heights between 2010 and 2012.

The curtain-raiser to their showdown on Sunday is Down against Roscommon while tomorrow night, the footballers of Offaly, Longford, Armagh and Fermanagh chase league glory in the Division 3 and 4 deciders.

There’s also minor hurling action this weekend along with the semi-finals in the ladies football league.
