Mayo put a bump in their efforts to secure a victory over Dublin for the first time since 2012 when Jordan Flynn received a red card early in the first half. A goal by Dean Rock in the 45th minute spelled doom for the man-short Mayo and Dublin ran away with a 6 point victory.

Kerry 1-15 (18) - Galway 2-11 (17)
