Hands on: Mayo’s Cillian O’Connor gets to grips with Brian Fox of Tipperary in the All-Ireland semi-final

Can Mayo win a first All Ireland title in 65 years by beating a Dublin side regarded by many as the greatest the game has ever seen? We want you to tell us who you believe will leave Croke Park as champions on Sunday.

If nothing else, 2016 has been the year of sporting underdogs. For Mayo, currently at 5/2 with the bookies, inspiration can be taken from Leicester City or, closer to home, Connacht.

However, to overcome Jim Gavin’s men, who are chasing back-to-back-titles and a fourth since 2011, the Westerners must conjure something seismic.

Can Stephen Rochford do what Michael Ryan did with the Tipperary hurlers just two weeks ago, and deliver an All Ireland title at the first time of asking?
