Dublin and Mayo reveal starting line-ups for eagerly-anticipated Lidl NFL Division 1 final

**UPDATED – 4/5/18 – 12:57pm**

HERE we are, Dublin and Mayo to go at it again in a national decider.

They were in opposition last September when a record 46,286 attendance flocked through the turnstiles for the TG4 All-Ireland senior decider.

Dublin came with a late flurry of goals to claim victory on that occasion but a transitional Mayo have their sights set on revenge.

Dublin have never won a Division 1 title while Mayo’s last success was achieved back in 2007.

The Sky Blues were finalists last in 2014, losing out to Cork, while the Rebelettes also defeated Mayo in their last final appearance two years ago.

Dublin manager Mick Bohan and Mayo supremo Peter Leahy have revealed their starting line-ups.

Dublin have gone with 12 of the starting team that lined out last September, with Mayo opting for ten of that selection.

Rachel Kearns, who played in the half-back-line last season, is now between the sticks for Mayo.
