Mayo have arrived in big numbers in Dublin and have made their presence felt on Hill 16.

Fans from both counties have been busy trying to source golden tickets for today's sell-out All Ireland final and those who were successful from Mayo have taken over Dublin's spiritual home of Hill 16.

Mayo have a history of invading the Hill and even their players have tried a similar tactic when they warmed up in front of the famous terrace in 2006 in an incident dubbed the 'Mill at the Hill'.

Over 82,000 fans have packed into Croker for today's All Ireland final.
