One of the great rivalries to emerge during the Championship of recent years has been that between Dublin and Tyrone. Having lost to the Dubs in the 1995 Final, Tyrone got their revenge in the 2005 and 2008 Championships, knocking out the Dubs at Croke Park in each year. Alas, 2010 saw a new page turned, with the Dubs seeing off Tyrone to earn a semi-final place.
And so, in 2011, the Red Hand-Dublin rivalry is renewed, with a place against Donegal in the All-Ireland semi-final up for grabs later today. Personally, my money is on Tyrone to claim Sam again this year, though that’ll require successive victories over the Dubs, Donegal and (most likely) Kerry.
