1976 All-Ireland Football Final: Dublin v Kerry


Stunned by the exuberant emergence of Mick O’Dwyer’s team a year previously, Kevin Heffernan’s Dublin are back in the final seeking both revenge and a first All-Ireland final win over Kerry in over 50 years. The attendance at this eagerly awaited contest is 73,588 and won’t be bettered until the new Croke Park is completed in 2002. Dublin feature some team changes and in the middle of a new half-back line is Kevin Moran, in his first All-Ireland. Both teams were pressed extremely hard in their provincial finals, Dublin just about surviving Meath and Kerry taken to a replay and extra time by Cork in the Munster final at newly opened Páirc Uí Chaoimh. Dublin 3-08 Kerry 0-10
