      gaa football Semi Final live streaming dublin vs kerry live. Kerry have won 36 All-Ireland senior football championship titles and Dublin have won 23. That puts them miles ahead of the next county on the roll of honour - Galway, with nine. In fact, Kerry and Dublin's combined tally of 59 All-Irelands leaves them just seven behind the combined total of All-Ireland football titles won by the other 30 counties on the island.

      So they are the undisputed blue bloods. The aristocrats. Like Real Madrid v Barcelona and Manchester United v Liverpool in soccer, or Kilkenny v Cork in hurling, Dublin v Kerry is the ultimate glamour tie of the elite in Gaelic football.

      The strength of their rivalry has been revitalised time and time again by epic championship duels. Sunday's All-Ireland semi-final will be the 27th time the counties have faced each other in the championship, and all but a handful of their meetings have been in either All-Ireland semi-finals or finals.

      Dublin v Kerry

      Recent Championship Meetings

      2011: Dublin 1-12 Kerry 1-11 (F)
      2009: Kerry 1-24 Dublin 1-7 (QF)
      2007: Kerry 1-15 Dublin 0-16 (SF)
      2004: Kerry 1-15 Dublin 1-8 (QF)
      2001: Kerry 2-12 Dublin 1-12 (QF)

      This is their fourth championship meeting in the last seven seasons. In the 2009 All-Ireland quarter-final, Kerry spectacularly returned to form with a 1-24 to 1-7 thrashing of Dublin. Pat Gilroy memorably described his team as being like "startled earwigs" in the opening blitz in which Kerry destroyed them.

      Two years later though, it was a very different story. They met in the All-Ireland final for the first time since 1985, and Gilroy's Dublin were a very different force from the side of two years earlier. Kerry looked to be heading for another All-Ireland title with less than ten minutes to go, but Kevin McManamon's goal changed everything and Stephen Cluxton's injury-time winner from a free has since passed into legend.

      In the aftermath of that remarkable game, most of the focus was on the city's joy at ending a 16-year wait to win the Sam Maguire Cup. Naturally enough, Kerry's pain didn't make too many headlines. But what a pain it must have been. Leading an All-Ireland final by four points with 64 minutes played, Kerry were in total control but from nowhere, it slipped from their grasp.

      For men used to winning like Colm Cooper, Declan O'Sullivan, Paul Galvin and the Ó Sé brothers it was a horrendous way to lose an All-Ireland final, and whether they admit it or not, Sunday's game is a huge chance for Kerry to exact revenge for that most bitter of defeats.

      Kerry forward Darran O'Sullivan said earlier this week that as that game was in the past, it was probably best left there.

      "Obviously you want to get one over on them because they beat you in an All-Ireland final. At the end of the day they won that game, they beat us fair and square and they have the medal for it," the Glenbeigh man said.

      "We’re not going to change the history of that game. It is about playing this game on its merits. They are one of the top teams in the country so we know we’re up against it."

      While hopes of revenge may well be resident in many of the Kerry players' hearts, plenty has changed for both teams in the last two seasons, and it means achieving it is a very daunting prospect.
