    Sean Moran previewing the matches there, his predications are:

    Kilkenny in the hurling. Offaly and Carlow in the Leinster football, Donegal in the Ulster preliminary round, and Galway in the big one.

    I fancy Dublin in the hurling and Louth to beat Carlow.

  • 14:58
    Dublin 2-9 Kilkenny 0-12 (39') Great start to the second half for Dublin. Liam Rushe causing all sorts of bother inside again and he sets up Conal Keaney for a fine score. But Kilkenny bite back with scores from John Donnelly and James Maher.
  • 14:59
    Dublin 2-9 Kilkenny 0-13 (41') From the sideline Walter Walsh gets Kilkenny's fourth point in the first six minutes of the second half.
  • 15:01
    Dublin 2-9 Kilkenny 0-13 (42') Dublin go direct down the centre, this time it doesn't make it to Liam Rushe but Conal Keaney gets out over it and wins a free. But Paul Ryan fluffs what was a quite straightforward effort. His third miss.
  • 15:03
    Dublin 3-9 Kilkenny 0-14 (45') Kilkenny can not live with Rushe at the edge of the square. He handpasses it off to Jake Malone who finishes it the second time of asking. Rushe has assisted all three goals. TJ Reid gets a point back for the Cats with a free as Paul Murphy comes on and seems to be picking up Sutcliffe
  • 15:04
    Dublin 3-10 Kilkenny 0-14 (46') Paul Winters comes on for Paul Ryan, and his first touch is a catch, his second is an over the shoulder point
  • 15:06
    Dublin 3-11 Kilkenny 0-14 (49') Paul Winters nails a free from distance. Dublin can't afford to miss anymore frees and that was a good start to them from the substitute
  • 15:09
    Dublin 3-11 Kilkenny 0-16 (50') Brilliant interception from Joey Holden, it's worked up the other end and Colin Fennelly scores a beauty.  
  • 15:10

    Dublin 3-12 Kilkenny 0-16 (53')  Tomas Connolly comes on - brother on Diarmuid. Bill O'Carroll is already playing in the Dublin defence and he is the younger brother of Rory.

    Connolly's first involvement is to score a point from distance.

  • 15:14

    Dublin 3-13 Kilkenny 0-18 (57')  Two Dublin attacks in a row come to nothing. Colin Fennelly wins a break and eats up the ground through the middle before doubling it over the bar. Conal Keaney responds, he's been excellent

  • 15:15

    Dublin 3-14 Kilkenny 0-18 (58')  Danny Sutcliffe slices through the Kilkenny defence, passes it to Fiontan McGibb who points from a very, very tight angle

  • 15:19

    Dublin 3-15 Kilkenny 0-19 (60')  TJ Reid blazes one over the bar after Ryan O'Dwyer replaces Keaney. Dublin will hope that what seems to be a shoulder injury for Keaney isn't going to keep him out for too long. He's been outstanding today. An experienced sub to come on though

  • 15:20

    Dublin 3-15 Kilkenny 0-20 (63')  Another free from TJ Reid, cuts the deficit to four points

  • 15:23

    Dublin 3-15 Kilkenny 0-21 (65')  Eoin Murphy up from the Kilkenny goal to drive ove r abig free. Three point game now and five minutes left

  • 15:23
  • 15:25
    Big long ball in on top of Dublin goalkeeper Alan Nolan and he makes a brilliant catch before being buried over the line by Walter Walsh. Free out. Two minutes left
  • 15:25

    Dublin 3-15 Kilkenny 0-22 (69')  Another point from Colin Fennelly. We will have four minutes of added time  

  • 15:27
    Eoin Murphy lining up a free from his own halfback line
  • 15:27

    Dublin 3-15 Kilkenny 0-23 (70')  And it sails over. One point game into added time. That was the goalkeeper's fourth point

  • 15:28

    Dublin 3-15 Kilkenny 1-23 (71')  GOAL! Liam Blanchfield with a cool finish and now Kilkenny lead by two

  • 15:30

    Dublin 3-16 Kilkenny 1-24 (73')  Winter tips over a free. One point game. But not for long as Walsh scores a beauty from the right sideline. He loves that angle

  • 15:31
  • 15:31
  • 15:34

    FT Dublin 3-16 Kilkenny 1-25  Dublin stopped hurling. Denied a famous victory as Kilkenny empty their bench and the likes of Colin Fennelly and Paul Murphy make huge impacts. Dublin remind us all however of the talent within the county. The injury to Conal Keaney will be a concern moving forward

  • 15:35

    Liam Blanchfield: "We knew coming up here to Parnell Park that Dublin would be waiting in the long grass. A big physical team.  

    "It was great to get the win and we can push on now next week."

  • 16:06
  • 16:09
    Patrick Durcan hits the first wide of the game. Mayo have started very strongly
  • 16:11
    Another wide - this time Colm Boyle. Mayo are playing with masive intensity. Winning every battle. But Galway are sitting around the D and forcing the lateral pass and not allowing the overlap which Mayo live off
  • 16:13
    Mayo 0-1 Galway 0-2 (8')  A big catch for Ciaran Duggan relieves the pressure for Galway. It's worked up to Sean Armstrong who points, and then Damien Comer adds another. Diarmuid O'Connor hits Mayo's fourth wide
  • 16:14
    Mayo 0-1 Galway 0-3 (11')  Barry McHugh curls over a free after Damien Comer wins the free
  • 16:15

  • 16:16
    Andy Moran wins it inside but he hesitates and is boxed up by three Galway men at the edge of their square.  
  • 16:18
  • 16:20

    Mayo 0-1 Galway 0-4 (16')  Mayo hold the ball for about 40 seconds, left to right and back. It ends in a Paddy Durcan's shot dropping short. Down the other end and Barry McHugh from 50m nails a free.

    Galway have the wind with them this half

  • 16:21
    Mayo have not scored in 15 minutes. Their initial attack is too slow and allowing Galway to get the numbers back. They need to be testing the weak Galway fullback line and not running at where they are strong. Same old same old as what they did in the last two meetings between these teams
  • 16:21
  • 16:22

    Mayo 0-2 Galway 0-5 (18') Diarmuid O'Connor fists over the bar for Mayo before Comer spins Barrett and points. He's winning everything that comes in to him

  • 16:22
  • 16:24

    Mayo 0-3 Galway 0-5 (21') Declan Kyne pulls back Doherty and Loftus scores the resultant free.

  • 16:26

    Wide number five from Mayo - Loftus this time from distance.  
  • 16:29

    Mayo 0-5 Galway 0-5 (25') Excellent score from Kevin McLoughlin, outside of his boot, leans back and floats it over. Yellow card for Kyne means the entire Galway fullback line has been booked after 26 minutes

  • 16:31

    Mayo 0-5 Galway 0-6 (27') Shane Walsh has been anonymous so far - but he collects it 40m from goal and on the trot he floats it left footed across his body. Top class

  • 16:33
    Red card Mayo - Diarmuid O'Connor for an elbow. He was being fouled but he led with the elbow to shake off the tackle. Caught Paul Conroy right in the jaw
  • 16:33
  • 16:34

    Mayo 0-5 Galway 0-7 (30') Big point from Ciaran Duggan out on the right wing

  • 16:36
  • 16:36
  • 16:37

    Mayo 0-5 Galway 0-7 (34') Excellent tackle from Aidan O'Shea. McLoughlin then wins a free in the right corner. Takes the free himself and opts not to go for it, kicks it back 20m. This suits Galway down to the ground  

  • 16:39
    Three minutes of first half additional time to be played in Castlebar
  • 16:41

    Mayo 0-6 Galway 0-7 (37') Reigning Footballer of the Year Andy Moran steps inside his man and drives a big point over the bar to inspire his teammates and the home crowd

  • 16:44

    HT Mayo 0-6 Galway 0-7  It's like last year on repeat. Mayo down to 14 men, refusing to play on instinct and feed the boys inside before Galway get set up around the D. They trail by only one point but unless they change their approach, Galway will stay in front and then pull away late on as Mayo's frustration grows. Mayo playing like Mayo will not work against this Galway team!
