Cork official Conor Lane will be the referee for the All-Ireland senior football final replay between Dublin and Kerry on Saturday September 14th at Croke Park.

The GAA announced the match officials and ticket details for the game this afternoon. David Gough was the man in charge in yesterday's 1-16 to 1-16 drawn game.

It means the Banteer/Lyre clubman will be officiating in his third All-Ireland senior decider in four years. He previously took charge of the 2016 final between Dublin and Mayo, and last year's decider as the Dubs saw off Mickey Harte's Tyrone.

Lane has also refereed the All-Ireland Minor final in 2013, the Connacht final in 2013 and 2016, the 2019 Ulster Final and the AIB Senior Club final in 2016.

In this year’s Senior Football Championship, he refereed the All-Ireland Senior Football Championship semi-final between Dublin and Mayo, the quarter-final between Meath and Donegal, the Ulster Championship meetings of Donegal and Cavan and Cavan and Monaghan, the Connacht Championship clash of New York and Mayo, and in the Leinster Championship, he oversaw the meeting of Dublin and Kildare.

His umpires on the day will be Kevin Roache, DJ O'Sullivan (both Banteer/Lyre), Ray Hegarty (Bride Rovers) and Pat Kelly (Kilshannig)

Laois’ Maurice Deegan will be the standby referee. The other linesman is David Coldrick (Meath) and the sideline official will be Niall Cullen (Fermanagh).

The GAA have also announced ticketing arrangements for the replay.

Tickets will be reduced by a third for the game - stand tickets are priced at €60 and terrace tickets at €30.

Discounted children’s tickets, costing €10, will also be made available to the competing counties.

It is not expected that there will be a general sale of tickets, with all tickets being distributed through county boards.

Dean Rock missed a difficult late free for Dublin as Kerry postponed Jim Gavin's sides quest for a fifth Sam Maguire in a row.

Jonny Cooper was sent off for Dublin for persistent fouling on Kerry star David Clifford.
