It seems that history has repeated itself as Mayo was one point short of a tie while facing Dublin last year as well, with the final score standing at Dublin 1-17 Mayo 1-16.
In a speech, Stephen Cluxton applauded Mayo for a well-played final and their sportsmanship.
In the end it was Dean Rock’s free that pushed Dublin over the line.
This is Mayo’s ninth defeat in the All-Ireland final since 1989, but they pushed Dublin with all they had both last year and this year.
Mayo GAA’s Stephen Rochford congratulated Dublin on their win, and said “it just wasn’t meant to be.”
Dublin fans are ecstatic with their hat trick, and Mayo fans are understandably devastated.
