Kerry is looking to win back-to-back titles!
The county, also known as the Kingdom, is looking to win the title back-to-back, having defeated Galway 0-20 to 0-16 in the 2022 final.

Kerry has the power-scoring David Clifford in their ranks. Clifford is widely regarded as the best footballer in the country. He is the current player of the year and is the odds-on-betting favorite (-150) to win the award again this year.
To retain the Sam Maguire trophy, Kerry will need a strong performance from Clifford.
Can experienced Dublin win another Sam Maguire?
This is a Dublin team that is vastly experienced and has plenty of All-Ireland wins in its ranks. Dublin has two-time GAA player of the year, Brian Fenton, and returning talisman Stephen Cluxton. Fenton has six All-Ireland titles, and Cluxton has eight.
Dublin has also - without a doubt - been the best team over the past decade. They won this title six years in succession, from 2015 to 2022. They also won it in 2013.
In the past two years, their grip on the Sam Maguire trophy has slipped. In 2021, Dublin lost in the semi-final stage to Mayo.

Then 12 months ago, they again lost at the semi-final stage, this time to Kerry. Who, as we know, then went on to win the final.
Our Pick to win the 2023 All-Ireland Football Championship
This is a very difficult match to call. Dublin has the experience, but have the legs started to run out of gas over the past couple of years?
For example, in goal, Dublin has the returning hero, Stephen Cluxton. The man is regarded as the best keeper in the history of the sport. But up against Cluxton is Shane Ryan, widely regarded as the current best keeper in the GAA. Cluxton is 41, and Ryan is 27.
The match almost has an experience against youth feel about it. Kerry is the new upstart, and Dublin is the side who have been there, done it, and don’t just have the one t-shirt, they have a collection of them.
It’s almost like this is a chance for a last hurrah for this Dublin team. But it’s also a chance for Kerry to establish themselves as a force in the Gaelic game. They have an opportunity to win their second title in succession and start to forge their own recent dynasty, one comparable with Dublin’s over the past decade.
As for us, we’re going for Dublin to win. Yes, the match could go either way, but this Dublin side looks hungry, and they have the know-how when it comes to winning big matches.
Kerry won the semi-final between the two sides last year by just one point. We feel Dublin will have learned from that, and they will also have a plan to cope with David Clifford, and this is why we are picking Dublin to win on the money line at +120.
