Darragh Ó Sé: I still think Dublin will win the All-Ireland

It’s impossible to see them losing to Kildare and then they just have two more games

I still think Dublin will win the All-Ireland. I don’t know if that’s suddenly a controversial opinion – maybe the heat is getting to me. But when I look around the championship and the eight teams left in it, I would still rather be sitting down to the table with Dessie Farrell’s hand than with anybody else’s.

Break it down to brass tacks. Dublin don’t have to beat the other seven teams, they only have to beat three of them. One of those three is Kildare in the Leinster final and with the best will in the world, it’s impossible to see them losing that. So that leaves them with two games to win another All-Ireland.
