Dublin’s hopes of sealing a historic fifth All-Ireland championship were put on hold when Kerry held them to a draw in a thrilling encounter at Croke Park on Sunday.

The battle for the Sam Maguire ended with the sides locked at 1-16 apiece and they will now have to do it all again in two weeks’ time.

Dublin lead by four points at the break, after a goal from Jack McCaffrey 18 minutes in.

But Kerry were determined to stay right in the game and, in the second half, they found a goal of their own courtesy of Killian Spillane.

And, in the 66th minute, it was Spillane who provided the point that allowed Kerry to steal into the lead and within touching distance of victory.

However, the Dubs were not done either and Dean Rock kicked them level.

The replay will be held at Croke Park on Saturday 14 September, with throw-in at 6pm.
