This historic three in a row winning run is a marvellous achievement from one of the best county teams we have ever seen. My commiserations must go to the brave and talented Mayo team.   I hope that as many Dubs fans as possible make their way to Smithfield Plaza tomorrow to welcome and congratulate our heroic team.  Cuirfidh pobal Bhaile Átha Cliath fáilte ollmhór dár laochra tar éis an bua stairiúl seo”
