Date For All-Ireland Football Final Replay Confirmed

Date For All-Ireland Football Final Replay Confirmed

We're all in need of a nap after that incredible draw between Dublin and Kerry and it's time to get ready to do it all over again. After a game that had everything; goals, sending offs and Hawkeye controversies, a lot of neutrals will now be wondering when is the All-Ireland final replay set for.

The final moments of the game swung from side to side in dramatic fashion. Killian Spillane had given Kerry the lead near the death and it looked like they might be able to hold on. But then, after Dublin had gotten an equalising point, it looked like they might have been able to grab the five-in-a-row at the death, only for Dean Rock to miss the last-gasp free.

When is the All-Ireland final replay?

The replay has been set for Saturday 14th of September at 6pm, with the Ladies' football final on the following day.

Will Johnny Cooper be back for the replay?

While Johnny Cooper was sent off, the fact it was two yellow cards means he'll avoid a suspension. His red card of course caused plenty of debate, with Joe Brolly and Ciaran Whelan on The Sunday Game panel strongly disagreeing with David Gough's decision. Pat Spillane strongly disagreed however.

Who will referee the All-Ireland final replay?

One aspect of the replay that is yet to be sorted is the matter of who will referee the game. Given David Gough has refereed the first game he won't be refereeing the replay. We'll have to wait and see who the GAA announce for the next day.
