Dublin and Mayo's recent rivalry


Dublin and Mayo have met 14 times in the Championship since 1904.

The record currently stands at eight Dublin wins, two Mayo victories, and four draws.

Since 1985, though, Mayo and Dublin have been involved in several high profile tussles.

1985 All Ireland SFC Semi-Final

Dublin 1-13 Mayo 1-13

Dublin 2-12 Mayo 1-7 (replay)

"Padraig Brogan is in full flight, oh what a brilliant goal, one of the goals of the season surely", Ger Canning's words as Mayo launched a daring mission against Dublin in a 1985 All Ireland SFC Semi-Final replay at Croke Park.

Brogan was always viewed as a thrilling talent in the west and he was now delivering in front of a national audience.

It wasn't to be, though, for Mayo despite Brogan's flash of brilliance and Kevin McStay's four points.

Dublin just had that bit extra. Barney Rock nailed 0-5, Kieran Duff planted a couple of goals. Dublin were subsequently beaten in the decider by Kerry.

2006 All Ireland SFC Semi-Final

Mayo 1-16 Dublin 2-12

An occasion that started with fire and fury when Mayo warmed up at the Hill 16 end. That set the tone and the match didn't disappoint either. It was a compelling classic.

Conal Keaney and Jason Sherlock blasted goals for Dublin, who edged 2-11 to 0-10 ahead by the 46th minute.

Slowly, but surely Mayo came back. Kevin O'Neill's poise and Andy Moran's promise gave Mayo hope. Alan Dillon kicked the leveller, Conor Mortimer edged Mayo ahead. Alan Brogan responds, parity restored.

Ciaran McDonald lands the blow that truly matters at the death with a point for the ages.

2012 All Ireland SFC Semi-Final

Mayo 0-19 Dublin 0-16

Mayo produced a stunning opening period performance. Cillian O'Connor was precise from frees, Kevin McLoughlin dashed about and the reigning All Ireland champions were in all sorts of bother as the Green and Red led 0-12 to 0-6 at the interval.

That lead was extended to 10 by the 50th minute as a pumped up Mayo team then adequately dealt with a late Dublin flurry.

David Clarke, not for the first or last time, made a critical save in the closing stages for Mayo. Donegal subsequently beat Mayo in the Final.

2013 All Ireland SFC Final

Dublin 2-12 Mayo 1-14

It was a match decided by Bernard Brogan's smooth opportunism. Brogan netted two vital goals; at the opposite end Andy Moran rattled the Dublin net.

Michael Darragh MacAuley's powerful and direct running was a key factor for Dublin.

Mayo trimmed the gap in the dying minutes, but Dublin held on. Just about.

2015 All Ireland SFC Semi-Final

Dublin 2-12 Mayo 1-15

Dublin 3-15 Mayo 1-14 (replay)

No shortage of drama again. An edgy draw was played out with Andy Moran concluding a dynamic Mayo comeback with an equalising point.

Cillian O'Connor had been ice cool converting a penalty as Mayo, who trailed by six with seven minutes remaining, finished strongly.

In the replay it was Dublin who ended the match in blistering fashion. Mayo were four ahead by the 55th minute, but Bernard Brogan, Philly McMahon, and Kevin McManamon all bagged goals late on. Dublin defeated Kerry in the Final.

2016 All Ireland SFC Final

Dublin 2-9 Mayo 0-15

Dublin 1-15 Mayo 1-14 (replay)

Another draw and another Dublin replay triumph.

Mayo were defiant throughout a hotly contested first game, but leaked two bizarre own goals.

By the end Cillian O'Connor rifled over a remarkable point deep into stoppage time to ensure a second match would be necessary.

It was similarly hard fought. Lee Keegan scored a gorgeous goal, but was black carded on the stroke of half-time.

Diarmuid Connolly converted a second half penalty with Cormac Costello and Bernard Brogan delivering crucial cameos as substitutes. Dublin shaded a tense thriller.
