In just a few short hours they will have a chance to make amends. If Dublin win back-to-back All-Irelands it will be the culmination of a process that began as soon as the final whistle blew on September 18.

Much was made of Cillian O'Connor's reaction at the full-time whistle, as he raced down the tunnel immediately. Time to rest, time to reflect, time to plan.

O'Gara said it was the very same in the Dublin dressing room, as Jim Gavin's team immediately began to process their 0-15 to 2-9 draw - a performance that the reigning champions were not at all happy with.

"We were calm as always. Post game we reflected on it, we went straight into our recovery protocols and we had 2-3 days to rest up, get the bodies right, and lick any wounds," O'Gara told GAA.ie.

"We started digging down into our performance, or lack of it and go after those areas in the interim period and try and get it right individually so we can perform collectively."
