Yep, you read that right.

A wiki editor - one with a Connacht IP address perhaps - has described a thumping victory for the men from Mayo.

They predict a first All-Ireland for the county since 1951.

Vanquished champions Dublin are expected to put a mere two points on the scoreboard, while the western county romp to a 35 point victory.

Cillian O’Connor and Aidan O’Shea are naturally expected to be major contributors to their 3-28 score, but goalkeeper David Clarke is a surprise inclusion on the scoresheet.
