1993 Kilkenny v Galway final, Joe Rabbitte was Galway's star player at the time, Kilkenny banner: "Rabbitte's got myxomatosis"

Another one from the 1991 final, the Feile festival in Thurles was big at the time and the catchphrase for it was the "Trip to Tipp", but at the final there was a Kilkenny banner saying "Tipp to Trip"....they didn't unfortunately.
