Dublin players are hungry to add more Sam Maguire Cups to their haul after becoming the first team in GAA history to win five All-Irelands in-a-row,

Sky Blues ace Brian Howard summed up the mood in the Dubs camp after their 1-18 to 0-15 win over Kerry.

"It's a special day for all involved. We're still as hungry as ever. We had to be switched on for the whole of the second half," he said.

Dean Rock said: "It's unbelievable. It's an unbelievable group."

Goal hero Eoin Murchan added: "It's easy to play well with that group. I just got that ball saw a little gap and went for it.

"We've had great support all year. It really drives us on. Everyone drives each other on."
