Seamus Darby reckons Dublin won't be the only team under pressure in Sunday’s All-Ireland final.

Jim Gavin's Dubs are on the brink of a first-ever Five-in-a-Row of senior football titles, having proved unbeatable since 2015.

Standing in their way are Kerry, the last team to have had a shot at the Five-in-a-Row back in 1982.

Their dreams were crushed thanks to Darby’s late intervention – a stunning goal for Offaly in the dying moments to earn a one-point victory.

Speaking to RTÉ Sport, Darby gave his assessment of the clash.

"It’s very hard to see Dublin being beaten but we have the right opponents for them," he said. 

"Kerry have quite a bit to prove, I know they are a young team but Dublin are going for five in a row, Kerry were the last team that had a chance to do that and I think they will go all out to try and take the Five-in-a-Row off Dublin.

"No matter what they do I imagine it will affect them some bit but I also think there will be a bit of pressure on Kerry as well because they will be trying to deprive them of the Five-in-a-Row naturally enough.

"Kerry are a very proud county and have produced great players and teams down through the years. They would have liked to have been the first team to have done it."

On the question of whether or not this task has come a year or two too soon for Peter Keane’s crop, Darby said: "That’s probably true [but] a few of this Kerry team have All-Ireland senior [medals] and a lot have minor medals and they are very mature, I’d imagine.

"It’s an All-Ireland final and I don’t think it will faze them.

"Both teams have very good forwards and whoever can dominate the middle of the field [will have an edge], even if it’s 50-50 we are in for a very good and exiting game and I think it will be a great game."

Pushed on whether or not he fouled his marker for the most famous goal in GAA history, all of 37 years ago, Darby smiled: "Ah sure look it, it worked out, that’s a no."
