Let us guide you through the championship action with the opinions and analysis of some of the greatest players, coaches and thought leaders in the game.
Donegal can expect to take a month to absorb what they have achieved before turning to face the challenge of defending their titles
by Mickey Harte
Amid all the fanfare and razzmatazz the psychologically stronger team will bring home Sam after a long wait
There is no blanket approach to management and there must be an understanding that players will react to the pressure and the final fever in different ways
Mayo's off the cuff style against Donegal'l impenetrable system makes the final a fascinating prospect
People are expecting Dublin to turn on the form at some stage but it may be a case that it's just not there this year
Having reached the semi-final last year Donegal need to go one step further to continue on the rebuilding plan Jim McGuinness set out for them
Jack O'Connor would not have found it easy to walk away but Kerry now need someone to start the rebuilding process
If a manager believes they have the capacity to improve and to learn and the ability to apply those lessons then there is no reason for them not to stay on at the helm
With the benefit of better preparation than their weekend opponents Donegal can knock out the championship kingpins
Kerry and Tyrone have built up an intense rivalry since the turn of the century and the combined talent of both counties makes a formidable-looking side
Kerry are being written off following a sluggish performance against Westmeath but as they showed in '09 it only takes one big win to get them back on track
Despite all the coverage of the Seanie Johnston saga Kildare have enough experience to deal with the distraction and move on to the next round
Tyrone matched Donegal most of the way before falling short while Meath's young guns need to follow up last Sunday's game with another big performance
Kildare should get the chance to avenge last year's controversial defeat to Dublin with the odds stacked heavily against Meath and Kildare upsets
Mayo should avoid a major shock to reach another Connacht final while it is set to be much closer in the Ulster clash
Carlow probably missed their chance against Meath while Cork's rivalry with Kerry is definitely more deeply rooted than Tyrone-Armagh
A look back at the Tyrone-Armagh rivalry over the last 10 years and a memorable finish in Croke Park
Dublin face an increasingly difficult task if they are to do what Cork did in 1990 and what Kerry did in 2007
Having success at underage level doesn't automatically mean that senior success will follow and young players need help to make the transition through the age groups
The championship really is very different from the league in a number of aspects
There was a great atmosphere in Croke Park on Sunday for All-Ireland final day
I am looking forward to Sunday’s All-Ireland final as it promises to be an intriguing encounter.
As the build-up to the All-Ireland football.
Looking back at the game last Sunday between Dublin and Donegal.
Dublin’s experience over the last number of years will be a distinct advantage.
