Poll: Is Dublin's quest for a Leinster senior football 7-in-a-row a fait accompli?

Dublin are chasing history in the Eastern province.

ANOTHER RECORD LOOKS set to tumble this summer as Dublin aim to hold onto their Leinster senior football championship crown.

A glance through the record books indicates that no county has ever won 7 successive senior football titles in the Eastern province.

That’s the carrot for Jim Gavin’s Sky Blues as they aim to bounce back from their Allianz League final defeat against Kerry.

Dublin are also aiming for an All-Ireland three-in-a-row but before thoughts turn to Sam Maguire, they’ll be anxious to pick up the Delaney Cup again.

The action gets underway with three first round games on 21 May, with Louth meeting Wicklow at Parnell Park, Laois host to Longford at O’Moore Park while Carlow have home advantage against Wexford at Netwatch Cullen Park.

Dublin’s campaign begins at the quarter-final stage against Carlow or Wexford and the race will finally end on 16 July at Croke Park.

But who do you think will claim silverware in Leinster this year?

Let us know.
