DESPITE this weekend’s packed schedule, Dublin will hope that it is business as usual for them as they look to win their eighth All-Ireland in the last 11 years.

Standing in their way is a Galway side that has come so close yet so far in recent years, reaching the final in 2022 but falling short to a David Clifford-inspired Kerry side.

The tribesmen will hope to end the 90-year wait for a championship win over Dublin when they defeated the Boys in Blue in the 1934 All-Ireland final.

Given their most recent meeting in the Allianz Leagues, Dublin will go into this game as clear favourites, however have proved to be sub-par for their lofty standards, getting run close by Roscommon before steamrolling them in the later stages of the game.

They also allowed Louth to come within four points of them during the Leinster Senior Football Championship, given that last year’s Leinster final (the same match-up) finished with Dublin winning by 21 points.

What is the best way to travel to Croke Park if I have a ticket for Saturday’s GAA quarter-finals?

Translink is putting on a GAA bus special to Dublin which costs £32 for an adult and £20 for a juvenile and picks up Armagh, which departs from Armagh Bus Station at 11am.

The return bus departs from Dublin at 7pm, which means fans will miss some or most of the Dublin-Galway match, which throws in at 6.15pm.

A rail special was available for fans which ran in tandem with the Taylor Swift transport provisions, however this is sold out.
