Laois referee Maurice Deegan has been appointed to take of charge of the All-Ireland football final replay between Dublin and Mayo. 

It will be the third time for the Stradbally clubman to referee a decider having previously stood in the middle in 2008 and 2012.

“I’m really honoured that I will get the chance to referee another All-Ireland final,” Deegan said on the GAA website

“The fact that it is a replay probably heightens it a bit too, and I’d be very competitive - after 2008 and 2012 I still wanted to do an All-Ireland."

Deegan, who was on the sideline for last Sunday's draw, will have David Coldrick of Meath and Tyrone's Sean Hurson as linesmen for the 1 October clash at Croke Park. 

Kevin O’Brien, John Flynn, Tomás Moore, and Richard Oxley have been chosen as Deegan’s umpires.
