Dublin will return to Croke Park to face Mayo

The Dubs beat Kerry 0-22 to 2-14 to progress to the final

Late points from the Dubs saw off Kerry to book a place in next month's All-Ireland Final.  It means the Sky Blues chances of back-to-back Sam Maguires are well and truly alive.  

A packed Croke Park saw referee David Gough booed off the pitch at the final whistle with the ref also having match programmes and other items thrown at him, as he left the pitch.  It was a sign of Kerry's frustration about the number of free's awarded to Dublin with Kerry fans outraged over a number of decisions.

Dublin Boss Jim Gavin

Dublin came out top in a back and fourth battle, which at times saw some magnificent play from Kerry.  The Munster champions at one point putting together a unanswered tun of 2-4 heading towards halftime.  

Kerry Manager Eamon Fitzmaurice:

In the final 20 minutes, Kerry opened up a three-point lead, but the Dubs were able to claw them back with four unanswered points.  The Dubs then held on to claim victory in an enthralling encounter, to set up a date with Mayo in the Final.
