The temperature is in the high teens at Jones Road this afternoon and we are all set for a live blog here on Breakingnews.ie as Dublin take on Mayo in the second of the All-Ireland Senior Football Semi-Finals.
Donegal await today's winners in the final, having booked their place in a first All-Ireland Showpiece since 1992 seven days ago. 20 years ago Donegal faced Dublin in that decider - are the Metropolitans to set up a repeat pairing at the end of 70 minutes this afternoon?
The 2012 Electric Ireland Minor Football Final will be a repeat of the Leinster final after Dublin beat Kerry by 3-12 to 1-10. Conor McHugh, Cormac Costello and Dave Campbell with the goals. They now face Meath in the decider.
And one of Dublin's Minor stars of 2011, Ciarán Kilkenny; is rumoured to start in this afternoon's Senior semi-final. Eamon Fennell and Alan Brogan are injury doubts for the Metropolitans.
If Fennell doesn't start it's likely Kilkenny will come into the Blues attack with Michael Daragh MacAuley moving to midfield.
One confirmed change to the Mayo line-up already with defender Colm Boyle ruled out due to flu, with the Davitts clubman replaced by Chris Barrett. Boyle did however line out for the team photo in Croke Park.

Alan Brogan won't start and Ciarán Kilkenny is set to made his first Senior Championship start for Dublin this afternoon.
James Horan - "Andy (Moran) is a big blow, but we have got over that about three weeks ago. Enda Varley is getting the start today and we are confident about Enda's abilities."
Pat Gilroy - "Mayo have been one of the form teams of the year. It's a huge challenge but one we have been looking forward too."
DUBLIN: Stephen Cluxton; Fitzsimons, Rory O'Carroll, Cian O'Sullivan; James McCarthy, Brennan, Kevin Nolan; Eamon Fennell, Denis Bastick; Paul Flynn, Michael Daragh MacAuley, Bryan Cullen; Ciaran Kilkenny, Diarmuid Connolly, Bernard Brogan.
MAYO: David Clarke; Kevin Keane, Ger Cafferkey, Keith Higgins, Lee Keegan, Donal Vaughan, Chris Barrett; Barry Moran, Aidan O'Shea, Kevin McLoughlin, Jason Doherty, Alan Dillon; Enda Varley, Cillian O'Connor, Michael Conroy.
Teams standing arm-in-arm at the moment as we await Amhran na bhFiann shortly.
A moments silence in memory of Joseph Boyne, father of Dublin stats man Ray Boyne.
Who do you reckon will win Cóilín?
Before the quarters I was going for a Donegal-Mayo final with Donegal to win. Just feel Andy Moran's absence and the pressure on Dubs to perform may swing it in the reigning champions favour.
70 minutes between Dublin and Mayo and an All-Ireland final. Joe McQullan is our match referee. GAME ON!
Dublin with the early pressure. Mayo defence doing well
01:20 Bernard Brogan opens the scoring - Dublin 0-1 Mayo 0-0
Dublin settling quickest, but Aidan O'Shea prevents the Metropolitans from getting back-to-back scores, however Enda Varley registers Mayo's first wide at the opposite end.
04:15 Two from two for Bernard Brogan - Dublin 0-2 Mayo 0-0
04:50 First wide of the day for Dublin from Diarmuid Connolly.
06:33 First 45' of the day for Mayo. Westerners looking a bit edgy early on.
Cillian O'Connor to take it.
07:27 Cillian O'Connor opens the Mayo account - Dublin 0-2 Mayo 0-1
08:09 Bernard Brogan's attempt for his and Dublin's first point from play finishes short into the hands of Mayo keeper David Clarke. At the opposite end Michael Conroy's effort is blocked out for a 45 metre free by Rory O'Carroll.
09:27 Level for the first time thanks to a second pointed 45 from O'Connor. Donal Vaughan's efforts to put Mayo ahead finish wide - Mayo 0-2 Dublin 0-2
11:12 Michael Conroy with Mayo's third point in succession and the Connacht champions take the lead for the first time - Mayo 0-3 Dublin 0-2.
12:54 Bernard Brogan sends one in to Paul Flynn, but the cross-bar denies the Fingallians clubman of a possible goal.
A huge let-off there for Mayo. Think Lee Keegan might be in a bit of trouble, looks like dislocated finger
13:50 Injury to Lee Keegan halts play. Looks very serious.
15:00 Richie Feeney in for Lee Keegan as a temporary sub. The man from Westport looks in agony though. It will take some amount of strapping to see the half-back make his return.
16:09 Keegan just up off the deck. Injury occurred after going up for the ball with Paul Flynn.
Strapping won't sort that Cóíilín, it's higher up in the finger so that's much harder to put back in. I think it's actually fractured though, rather than a dislocation. Don't expect to see him back.
16:40 Game set to resume with a Mayo free which Cillian O Connor will take.
17:01 O'Connor puts it wide - it's Mayo's third.
@daragh ó conchuir - Agreed you could call it a full sub once that injury happened!
18:16 Dublin's search for a first score since the fifth minute continues. Ciarán Kilkenny with a wide.
19:05 Alan Dillon shows tremendous work-rate and outsmarts the Dublin defence to fist over the ball. Mayo 0-4 Dublin 0-2.
20:15 Mayo began nervously but looking far more assured in front of the posts now. Barry Moran with the latest - Mayo 0-5 Dublin 0-2
20:45 That's Mayo's fifth unanswered score.Ger Brennan drives forward at the opposite end but fouls the ball.
21:40 Diarmuid Connolly's first point, his sides first from play and Dublin break a 17-minute scoring deadlock. Mayo 0-5 Dublin 0-3
Dublin should have been three or four up but are now two down. The attack continues to misfire. That encouraged Mayo, who had started very nervously.
Mayo impressive in defence so far, some nice bursting runs forward including one just now from Feeney which has resulted in Alan Dillon's second point. Mayo 0-06 Dublin 0-3
