Sunday Game Montage Captures All Of The Raw Emotion Of Mayo Beating Dublin

Sunday Game Montage Captures All Of The Raw Emotion Of Mayo Beating Dublin

One of the greatest sporting dynasties came to a close this weekend as Mayo beat Dublin in the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship semi-final at Croke Park.

James Horan's dogged side came back from the brink at half-time following a strong Dublin display in the first-half to win the game after extra-time.

Robbie Hennelly slotted home that 45 late on to bring the game to an added twenty minutes, before Tommy Conroy and Ryan O'Donoghue caught fire to finish the job for the long-suffering Green and Red of Mayo.

That famous match has received the iconic montage it deserves, with thanks to the good people at RTÉ's Sunday Game.

Whether it was Darragh Maloney's commentary, or Padraig O'Hora's tearful post-match interview, this Sunday Game montage perfectly captures all the emotion of Saturday evening.

"It's over, Mayo have taken Dublin with the biggest scalp of all with a young team." 

"Dublin's 45 match run is over, and perhaps with the rivalry that they have had over the years with Mayo, that's just how it should be."

In truth, it arguably is the music that resonates with us the most here, with 'Jealous' by Labrinth being used to full effect.

"It's the greatest day of my life." Padraig O'Hora comments shortly after the game also made the cut.

We're not the only one's impressed by it all.

The big question remains: will we get an All-Ireland victory montage for Mayo on the evening on September 11?
