dublin v TYRONE: NO QUARTER Given

2005 All-Ireland quarter-final -- Dublin 1-14 Tyrone 1-14 (draw):

Tomas Quinn rescued Dublin with a pressure free deep into stoppage-time to send a gripping game to a re-match.

Dublin led by five points at the break thanks to a goal from Quinn, but Tyrone threw Enda McGinley and Joe McMahon into midfield to wrestle back Dublin's dominance and a famous Owen Mulligan goal off a mazy run got Tyrone back into it.

They went clear with 10 minutes left but Bryan Cullen and Conal Keaney helped Dublin fight back and two late Quinn points, the last a pressure free deep into stoppage-time, earned the replay.

2005 All-Ireland quarter-final replay -- Tyrone 2-18 Dublin 1-14:

Not content with his heroics the first day this one quickly turned into the 'Owen Mulligan Show'. Mugsy scored 1-7 (2f) and Stephen O'Neill 1-3 (including an early penalty).

With Quinn's free-taking faltering, Tyrone led 1-9 to 0-5 at the break, but Ciaran Whelan and Shane Ryan lifted the Dubs and they got the gap back to three before Sean Cavanagh intercepted a short kick-out, fed it to Mulligan and it was game over.

Dessie Farrell nicked a consolation goal but Peter Canavan didn't even have to come off the bench.

2008 All-Ireland quarter-final -- Tyrone 3-14 Dublin 1-8:

After racking up 3-23 against Wexford, Dublin were hot favourites, especially as Tyrone had just squeezed past Mayo by a point in their final qualifier.

But the Dubs, who lost Alan Brogan after six minutes, were a shadow of themselves. Tyrone, led by Brian Dooher and Tommy McGuigan, destroyed them, scoring 3-13 from play and were 14 points up on the hour.

2010 All-Ireland quarter-final -- Dublin 1-15 Tyrone 0-13:

After suffering a five-goal mauling by Meath five weeks earlier, Dublin were rank outsiders against a Tyrone team who humiliated Monaghan in Ulster.

Tyrone led by just a point at half-time but kicked 17 wides and had no one to match Bernard Brogan (0-9, 5f) but it hung in the balance until the final five minutes when Eoghan O'Gara grabbed the game's only goal.

Dublin's all-action teamwork held out to finally throw the Tyrone monkey off their back, but Cork pipped them by a point in the All-Ireland semi.
