Practically everybody in the GAA – other than Dublin of course – would have loved to see Mayo win the All-Ireland after failing to win their previous seven finals.
But while emotion plays a huge role in all sports and often inspires participants to incredible feats of performance, the only defining measurement of which team deserves to win a final is ability on that day.
Therefore sentiment must take a back seat today as we acknowledge that Dublin deserved to beat Mayo in Croke Park yesterday.
