While the former will be a contest between two teams chasing a historic place in the decider, the latter will be a meeting of the game’s traditional heavyweights.

And Meath legend Colm O’Rourke thinks Capital vs Kingdom will top anything that happens this weekend.

Write for RTEhe said: “There will hardly be a bigger sporting event in the world.

“With color and excitement, it’s hard to beat Dublin and Kerry.

“Kerry has all the minor medals but Dublin is dripping with gold.

“There’s almost more gold than you’d find at Fort Knox. Three or four All-Ireland medals don’t even count in Dublin with this crew.

“No build has been dominated more by who will play. If Con O’Callaghan plays it will obviously be a huge boost for Dublin.”

Going further, the two-time All-Ireland winner believes Kerry will be under the most pressure to make it to the Croke Park final.

However, if Con O’Callaghan and James McCarthy recover from injury in time to play the match, Dessie Farrell’s men will prevail.

Both men missed out on the quarter-final win over Cork, and their availability for Sunday remains uncertain.

O’Rourke continued, “I think all the pressure in this game is on Kerry.

“They haven’t beaten Dublin since 2009, lost the last five meetings. Their spring form is decent, can they translate that to the summer?

“They weren’t particularly impressive, I thought against Mayo.

“Maybe Dublin weren’t in the quarter-finals either, but there’s a common denominator with Cork, Dublin and Kerry beating them the same way.

“There’s a lot of pressure on David Clifford to coach Kerry to an All-Ireland final. But if Con O’Callaghan and James McCarthy play, I prefer Dublin.”
