Meath’s David Coldrick will referee the All-Ireland final showdown between Dublin and Kerry on Sunday week.

This will be his third All-Ireland final having previously handled the 2007 decider between Cork and Kerry and the 2010 final clash between Cork and Down.

An experienced official he took charge of the All-Ireland quarter final between Kerry and Kildare this season as well as the Ulster final between Donegal and Monaghan and the Leinster semi-final between Dublin and Kildare.

Cavan’s Joe McQuillan, who refereed the drawn semi-final between Dublin and Mayo, is the stand-by referee.

The other linesman is Cork’s Conor Lane.
 
It is a double for Meath as Slane clubman David Gough will referee the minor decider between Munster rivals Kerry and Tipperary.
