IT'S the big Bank Holiday double-bill - the climax of the Dublin Senior Hurling and Football Championship season.

IT'S the big Bank Holiday double-bill - the climax of the Dublin Senior Hurling and Football Championship season.

Huge crowds are expected to descend on Donnycarney as all the drama will unfold under the Parnell Park lights.

First up is Friday's county senior hurling championship final between Kilmacud Crokes and St Jude's.

And that will be followed by the Bank Holiday Monday clash of the All-Ireland champions, St Vincent's, and St Oliver Plunkett's/Eoghan Ruadh.

Crokes are bidding for their sixth county crown. It's the first final for Jude's. They were never in the semi-final before.

Vincent's, the high-kings of Dublin football, are looking to lift the Clery Cup for the 26th time. And if they do so, it will be their first back-to-back title since 1977.

In contrast, Plunkett's are hoping to finally get their hands on the holy grail of Dublin football. It's their third final.

This season, they have knocked out two of the giants, Kilmacud Crokes and Ballymun Kickhams.

Toppling the mighty St Vincent's would be some three-card trick that would spark emotional scenes back on the Navan Road.
