Busy weekend in Croke Park.

Busy weekend in Croke Park. 
Following last Sunday s drawn All-Ireland Football semi-final Croke Park has a busy weekend coming up. The replay of the Football semi-final between Dublin and Mayo is fixed for Saturday, with the All-Ireland hurling finals, minor and senior going ahead on Sunday. The football replay is very hard to call. Dublin appeared to be coasting to victory last Sunday, leading by 7 pts. with 10 mins. to go. But Mayo made a major recovery to snatch a draw. This should help their confidence for the replay while Dublin will be eager to make ammends for surrendering their lead last time.
The Hurling final is also difficult to call, although Kilkenny will start as favourites due to the vast experience they have in All-Ireland finals. Galway were very impressive in their victory over Tipperary in the semi-final. If they can reproduce that form they will be difficult to beat. They are no longer depending solely on Joe Canning to lead the attack and this has made them a better team.  Kilkenny have a very strong forward line and with Richie Hogan in superb form it should be a very interesting game.
