Australian-based Dubliner Paul Duff has taken it one step further with his contribution to the ‘Greatest Fans Ever’ gallery ahead of Sunday’s All-Ireland football clash.

Duff decided a photo from Down Under just wouldn’t cut it, so he has written a song called ‘Ode to Hill 16’.

“If a photo is worth one point, then perhaps it could be three points for something musical?!” he suggested to independent.ie.

“I’ve recently moved to Australia and will be missing this year's All-Ireland final after years of following the Dubs at all levels,” he added.

Mayo and Dublin fans from Ireland and across the world are sending in photos to feature online.

It may or may not be a prediction of the score on Sunday, but at the moment the Mayo fans are trouncing the Dubs with a photo score of 25-10.
