THIRTEEN DAYS LATER, the footballers of Dublin and Mayo will go again in Croke Park.

Cillian O’Connor swung over the injury-time point that clinched a draw for Mayo and ensured there will be a packed house for round two this evening.

After all the analysis of the drawn game and the heated spotlight on the battle between Diarmuid Connolly and Lee Keegan, we finally get to witness the second instalment when Maurice Deegan throws in the ball at 5pm.

But what is going to be the outcome?

Dublin to improve sufficiently to retain their title and be crowned All-Ireland champions for the fourth time in six years?

Will Mayo get the job done at the second attempt and end their long barren spell?

Or are we going to be back again for a third go on Saturday 8 October?

Let us know.
