I was taking mainly about finals. Galway played nice football and right into Kerry’s hands in 2008, they weren’t close really. Armagh well beaten in 06, their backs were dying on their feet. Cork 09 was a cruise for much of it, always in control.
Cork were fir sure a very good team but were beaten before any game Vs yous in Páirc An Chrocaigh. They barely got past a mediocre Down team in that final, and, Dublin were only getting going, we had no attacking outlet in the second half really and the sending off was silly. We also got rode by the ref a bit, and our supposed friend Joe on the line that day.
Cork got the breaks that year that Mayo haven’t, softest All Ireland since Meath in 99
