Thousands of Donegal fans are in Dublin to watch the county take on Mayo in the final of the All-Ireland GAA Football Championship.

The Ulster county has won the championship just once in its history - 20 years ago in 1992.

Manager Jim McGuinness named an unchanged side from the semi-final win over Cork.

Before the match, he said it would be a hard fought match.

He said as long as the team give it their all, the county would be proud of them.

"I expect it to be very competitive," he said.

"I expect Mayo to be very hungry. I'm hoping that our fellows are going to be very hungry.

"It's been 20 years since we've been in a final and if they are very hungry then we'll be competitive in the game and if we're competitive we've always got a chance of winning."

There is live coverage of the match on BBC Radio Ulster from 15:00 BST and on The Championship on BBC 2 from 15:15 BST.
