Rain will follow Mayo fans coming from the West on Sunday afternoon, however it should be dry by the time celebrations start.

According to Met Éireann, most places will stay dry tonight, with mist and fog making its way inland throughout the night.

Lowest temperatures will range from 7-10C.

However, rain will hit the West early on Sunday morning.

It will then follow Mayo fans across the Shannon to the East in the early afternoon.

It could be a wet and slippery afternoon at GAA headquarters, as showers are expected before throw-in at 3:30pm.

But, there is good news for whichever team is celebrating on Sunday night.

Rain is expected to clear in the early evening, with only Northern areas experiencing light drizzle.

Highest temperatures will range between 16-19C on the day.

The All-Ireland champions will be waking up to a mostly dry Monday morning, while the rest of the week looks a little wetter; with Tuesday and Wednesday set to be particularly wet days.

There will be a slight improvement on Thursday, before the rain clears again for the weekend on Friday.
