Dublin 2005-2011 The Dream-Seekers

Dublin have lost only one Leinster SFC game since the start of the 2005 championship but haven't been anywhere nearly as consistent on the All-Ireland stage. A total of 54 players have shared the provincial glory and the All-Ireland agony in that period, with goalkeeper Stephen Cluxton and Alan Brogan (one as a sub) playing in all 34 games.
