Kerry's heroes to take Croker bow

Before the game tomorrow, players from Kerry's 1986 All-Ireland winning team will take a bow in Croke Park.

Eight-time All-Ireland medal winner and holder of six All-Stars, Mikey Sheehy, said it was always nice to be part of the occasion. "Maybe it's the clash between the culchie and the city slicker but it always makes for a good atmosphere," he said.

Eighties hero Timmy O'Dowd agrees. "Dublin versus Kerry has always been a massive occasion. The feeling is still the same but times have moved on but we've had our day and it's their turn now."

Mikey predicts a two-point win for Kerry, while Timmy puts the margin at four points.
