Gardaí share stunning aerial photo of Croke Park taken before All-Ireland Final
What a scene...
It was what it always is on All-Ireland Sunday, a glorious occasion. A sold-out stadium showcasing the best footballers this country has to offer.
Dublin emerged victorious by a whisker in a match-up between two teams with absolutely nothing between them.
They've now won three in a row and can rightly be considered one of the best teams in GAA history. For the likes of Lee Keegan, Colm Boyle and Andy Moran, they must once again head west without Sam.
But what a great scene there was just moments prior to kick-off, captured by An Garda Síochána Air Support.

Five jets flew over Croke after Amhrán na bhFiann was played and their presence was appropriate for the magnitude of the day.
82,300 wedged into the ground to cheer on their teams in an amateur game is something impressive. Something special. It's the GAA.
It was a cauldron both on the pitch... and in the studio.
