The Dublin footballers are still reeling from their 3-14 to 0-17 defeat to Donegal in last Sunday's All-Ireland semi-final.

One of the most poignant images of the championships so far came when Dublin star Alan Brogan was pictured crying with his son Jamie.

Jim Gavin's squad are no doubt still down in the dumps given this message on twitter from midfielder Michael Darragh Macauley: "You know you are having a bad week when a homeless guy with a cardboard box is consoling you about the tough week you've had."

Meanwhile in Donegal, three players were flown by chopper to training from Dublin tonight.
