14-man Dublin claim Allianz League title


Dublin overcame the handicap of playing the last 20 minutes a man light as they battling past Galway 0-18 0-14 in the Allianz Football League Division 1 final at Croke Park.

In an entertaining game, the All-Ireland champions proved too strong for the Tribesmen, pulling away in the final stages to record a four-point win.

This is the 13th time Dublin have claimed the national league crown and is their fifth title in the last six seasons.

Niall Scully was the player who was dismissed, shown a second yellow card on 50 minutes for taking down Paul Conroy.

Jim Gavin will be delighted with how his side ignored the setback, regaining the lead on 59 minutes through a Dean Rock '45 and points from man-of-the-match Ciaran Kilkenny, Philly McMahon, Eric Lowndes, and an insurance score from Rock again, sealed an impressive win.

Galway will be pleased with their league campaign, reaching the decider in their first season back in the top division in seven years.

Manager Kevin Walsh will be disappointed Galway weren't able to secure the top flight crown for the first time since 1981 but they will look with confidence to the upcoming All-Ireland campaign.

For Dublin, another piece of silverware in this era of dominance.
