A brilliant giveaway outside today's All Ireland football final means that 20,000 fans will be able to enjoy free commentary of today's clash and next week's Ladies final.

While the focus today is on Dublin and Mayo, a clever giveaway ensured that next week's clash between Cork and Dublin managed to grab a sizeable chunk of the limelight outside and inside HQ. 

Lidl distributed up to 20,000 radio headsets to fans outside Croke Park this afternoon, enabling fans to listen to match commentary of the battle for Sam today.

However, these headsets will also work for next week's keenly anticipated rematch between Dublin and Cork at the same venue.

For a third successive year, the big-city rivals will battle it out for the biggest prize in Ladies Gaelic Football.

Incredibly, Cork are going for an 11th senior crown in just 12 seasons and they’ve beaten Dublin in the last two finals.

Two years ago they staged a miracle comeback to break Dublin hearts and last year they edged a low-scoring affair.

This year's clash then is all set up for a huge battle, with the Dubs sure to be more determined than ever to get one over on the Rebelettes.

The lanyards with the headsets dished out today calls for fans to show their #serioussupport next week, reminding them of the slogan 'Same Venue. Same Prize. Same Passion'.

That just sums it up perfectly.
