Replying To Bon:  "Was that shown on TV last night? I think he was always held in a high regard as a player, he won an all star if I'm not mistaken? Played for Dublin later in his career too"
No it wasn't on TV at all I was just watching highlights on YouTube, I remember Barr going to dublin as well, I'd say that time dublin were down the lower divisions so it would be hard to rate him.

Replying To Gaillimh_Abu:  "Barr had a great season in 1989 but he never really produced the goods on a consistent basis in subsequent years. That Antrim team had some very stylish hurlers: Paul McKillen was one of the top midfielders of that era and regularly popped over a few long range points. Sambo McNaughton was a brilliant wing back. Their 1991 semi-final with Kilkenny was an epic and they were desperately unlucky to lose by 2-18 to 1-19. After that they went into a steady decline."
Antrim had a good 3-4 year spell with that team so Gaillimh, Tipp gave gave them a bit of a beating in the final that year although the Antrim boys took skelps out of them if Im remembering properly, Pat fox and Nicky English got a few whacks from Nial Patterson, Jay's he was some size of a man.

He caused a major split in St Vincents when he transferred, i remember talking to some old vinnies stalwarts at the time and they were disgusted, never shone even at club level after that.

1985 semi-final, the first game between Kerry and Monaghan- cracking game from what i recall. The replay was more one sided to a degree. But drawn game was score for score

Jayz, I believe I was at that one as well ! If memory serves me right the Bomber stood under his own crossbar in the vain hope of preventing a late late Monaghan equaliser from a 50.
I do remember Monaghan brought massive support

The first game was a cracking game, Monaghan were a tidy side back then and put it up to a lot of teams. Kerry were lucky and just took the lead with time up with a cracking long range free from Mikey Sheehy, Monaghan won a free with time long gone about 70 yards out, the feeling was it was too far but the Monaghan forward stitched it, it was a cracking score worthy of the occasion.

The second game had two sendings off but was a good game also.

I think that was Nudie Hughes that kicked that score! Massive kick under pressure!

Yes it was McEneany. I recall an interview I heard were when he was lining up to it the ref said last kick and ironically Ambrose O'Donovan turned or Tommy Doyle and said we have it here boy - Ambrose said the look on Doyle's face when it cleared the black spot was just wow, Rosie said that one just had to sit back and admire it as a wonderful strike under pressure , a class free kick
