Replying To PoolSturgeon:  "Sounds like the GAA need to stop giving money to the Kerry County Board!"
Sorry I meant no offence to Galway when I mentioned your county in my post, I'm a big admirer of Galway football.

It's just some people on here are fair weather supporters and don't know their history.

Replying To Htaem:  "1895 All-Ireland football final, apparently we were robbed blind, would love to see that one back."
yeah heard about that alright, apparently the winning goal was scored when the forward threw the ball into the net..same thing happened in a provincial final in recent times...day light robbery:)

Replying To DUBJOHN:  "You also seen Dublin complete the first 5 in a row at senior football level, something that your great Kerry team couldn't do, feel privileged that you were there to see it last September!"
Absolutely, gotta bring out the DVD of it again over the weekend I think :)

Replying To katser:  "Oh I can't wait for Laochra Gael TG4 Thurs 26th March 9.30pm!
Iggy Clarke the Galway hurling no.7 in the 70's and 80's
I'm sure they will show clips of Galways famous and sweet victory in 1980 when Iggy couldn't play in the Final because of a broken collar bone in the Semi Final and 50,000 Galway fans chanted his name when the Cup was been presented!"
1980 Final was on air last week and on TG4 on Sunday at 1:50

Probably the acceptance speech ever in sports in Ireland bar none...

The breathless 2005 semi final between Kilkenny and Galway.

One of those games that had a pub full of people who had no interest in GAA saying wow hurling is the greatest game on earth

Oh definitely the best speech ever..still gives me passionate shivers of pride when I hear it!
But tonight is all about the great Iggy Clarke from the wonderful team of 1980.

Was that the game where Galway scored a load of goals to win?

I'd take Mayo v Dublin 2006, same fixture in 2012 or the semi against Kerry in 2017. Feck it, any game we didn't throw away or lose at this stage!

Replying To DUBJOHN:  "Have a look at the 2019 all Ireland football final replay, that's how you complete the 5 in a row!"
If you replace complete with buy I think you'll find you'll be more in tune with histories judgment ;D

Had to look it up, what a speech. That's what an All-Ireland speech should be, not 50 thank you's right down to the lad who milked the cows for the corner back.

Replying To Horsebox77:  "2006 quarter final between Kerry and Armagh, that was one class Armagh team and in fairness they were unlucky not to win more than their one all Ireland."
Armagh peaked in 05. The narrowness of that defeat to Tyrone knocked the stuffing out of them; they were never the same again.

I'd love to be able to see games from the 50s with modern filming quality; eg when Tyrone won their first Ulster title in 56. Another fantastic game was Galway v Tyrone in the league start of 04. Nothing much hanging on the game but it was one of those games where both teams just decided to go for it. Galway won AET; P Joyce and S Cavanagh both immense. Tyrone v Armagh 05 was a great game; extremely close and a good balance between quality defending and quality attacking. Some games that have passed into folklore are, when viewed objectively, characterised by some woeful defending.

Derry vs Down, first round 1994; greatest match ever, two brilliant teams, and whichever team won was going to stroll Sam Maguire. Blazing hot day, gladiatorial atmosphere, intensity was non-stop from start to finish. And also possibly the greats goal ever, esp in context
