DUBLIN city council are taking advantage of the rare September warm spell by erecting a big screen for today’s All-Ireland final.

Thousands of people are expected to take to the streets of the capital to enjoy today’s decider between Mayo and Dublin.

Smithfield Square will be open from 1pm to welcome fans who want to enjoy the sunshine and the big match.

The hugely-anticipated match has been sold out for weeks – with tickets changing hands for thousands online.

Gardai have advised members of the public only to purchase tickets through official sources, not touts on the street or online.

Dozens of people are believed to have been taken in by an online scam selling tickets.

Temperatures are expected to reach over 20 degrees during the match today.
