The All-Ireland Football Final between Dublin and Tyrone takes place this Sunday and it’s the Boys In Blue who are the hot favourites.
The bookies have the Ulstermen as an outside bet at 11/2 to prevent the Dubs from claiming four-in-a-row, with the champions available at a measly 1/6.
Should everything go as expected and Dublin clinch their 28th All-Ireland title, the Lord Mayor has advised fans to pencil in Monday evening for a civic reception in celebration of the achievement.
Nial Ring tweeted to say, ‘Civic Reception being planned for Monday 7pm Smithfield Square – watch this space! Baile Átha Cliath Abú!’
DUBS BANNER GOING BACK UP ON FAIRVIEW FOOTBRIDGE TOMORROW.
As promised, the Dubs banner will be back up well in time for the All-Ireland.
Also, pencil in Smithfield Square Monday 7pm for Civic Reception for (hopefully) Four-in a Row Champions!!

The homecoming (of sorts) has pretty much been an annual event in the capital in recent years and we’ll just have to wait until around 5pm on Sunday to see if it will be taking place again.
D’ya reckon Tyrone can cause a shock? We’d love to hear your predictions in the comments.
