All-Ireland is an event we can all take pride in
The 2015 All-Ireland football final was played in a downpour, with heavy rain making conditions difficult and delivering the lowest-scoring decider since 1980.
But nothing could dampen the elation of Dublin fans at Croke Park yesterday, who witnessed Jim Gavin's side, captained by a near speechless Stephen Cluxton, secure Dublin's 25th All-Ireland title - their third in five years.
The win was a particularly special one for Dublin, who have now conquered Kerry in three successive championships for the first time ever and have seen Gavin bring home not one but two Sam Maguires.
