The best Twitter reaction to Dublin's victory over Mayo at Croker
Dublin and Mayo play out a cracker in Croker this evening, with Jim Gavin’s men winning out by 3-15 to 1-14 to advance to the All-Ireland final.
Whereas last week the focus was on cynical play, today’s encounter was high on quality, with majestic scores being kicked throughout.

Switching over to watch the GAA. At least it'll be competitive. FIFA need to re-think these mind-numbingly boring games against pub teams.— Joseph Barton (@Joey7Barton) September 5, 2015

We failed to hammer home the advantage when on top, should never have let them back into it.— Mayo GAA Blog (@MayoGAABlog) September 5, 2015
Mayo played too much possession football in own half when 4 ahead? Didn't press home advantage? #DublinVMayo— Matt Cooper (@cooper_m) September 5, 2015
Naturally, fans went berserk over the twists and turns in the contest and let their feelings be known on Twitter. Turns out that some pretty high profile sports people took a few hours out of their schedule to indulge in Gaelic football.
