Match Report - Dublin v. Derry - SFC QF

Marching against Derry and Preparing for Battle

Dublin 0-18 Derry 0-15

Believe. Dublin's quest for All Ireland Senior success moves on with a superb start to the second half putting Derry away. Mark Vaughan continued his deadball precision (6 from 6) and Ciaran Whelan put in another incredible midfield performance, and at the back Stephen Cluxton showed again why he is Ireland's best keeper. A special word of praise to the Hill who gave a fantastic reception to Roscommon's hurlers, Dublin's All Ireland U14 Ladies champions and staying behind to applaud Derry off the field.

With Kerry beating Monaghan the dream semi-final is in place and the Boys in Blue can show just how good they are. The 26th can't come soon enough.
