Dean Rock was Dublin's Mister Reliable on Sunday.
He scored 10 of 11 dead balls. The Ballymun man also added two points from play - finishing with a total of 12 points - as Dublin edged out Kerry.
On Saturday evening, it was another free taker who Dublin had to thank for victory. This time it was for the Dublin ladies.
With the last kick of the game against Mayo, Sinead Aherne showed some steely nerve to put Dublin into the All-Ireland final.
Aherne scored a total of 2-6 in the game, three of those points came from frees.
After a quarter-final where she missed some makeable frees, Aherne put in extra time on the training ground in the build-up to Saturday's semi-final.
Dublin manager Gregory McGonigle told Jackie Cahill that her Dublin men's counterpart Dean Rock was on the training pitch offering advice.
Whatever you get in life, you have to earn the right to do it and the team needed her to put in more work. She went away a couple of nights with Dean Rock, he went up to the field with her and Sinéad started knocking over the frees with one of the best free-takers in Ireland. I owe him a few pints!
Here's that crucial score from Sinead Aherne.
