Confirmed: Kerry v Mayo replay will take place in Croke Park
Save your jokes about the Gaelic Grounds, please.

KERRY AND MAYO will have to do it all again next Saturday, 26 August, after their absorbing All-Ireland senior football semi-final ended in a draw.

The replay has been confirmed for Croke Park with throw-in at 3pm.

It is the third time in the last four seasons that Mayo’s All-Ireland semi-final has gone to a replay.

After playing out a draw with Kerry in 2014, the replay was controversially scheduled for Limerick’s Gaelic Grounds, with Croke Park unavailable due to a college American football game scheduled to take place on the same day.

Kerry won another modern epic in that replay, 3-16 to 3-13, before going on to lift Sam Maguire against Donegal.

The following year, Dublin beat Mayo 3-15 to 1-14 in an All-Ireland semi-final replay before going on themselves to win the All-Ireland.
