Taoiseach Leo Varadkar has said that Dublin should “maybe” leave room for another county to win the All-Ireland after they make history.

Mr Vardakar, a TD for Dublin West, laughed when asked whether the capital’s dominance of the football championship was bad for the game.

“No I don’t,” he said, adding: “There were 16 long years when we didn’t win.”

Dublin take on Kerry in a much-anticipated  reply in Croke Park tomorrow, while the ladies' team play Galway in the final on Sunday.

“I would love us to get the five in a row and would really love the ladies to win on Sunday as well, that would be the five in a row and the Dublin double, so maybe after that, maybe after we have made history we might let a different county win,” Mr Varadkar said.
