He also played in the All-Ireland final of '78. Went back to Manchester with stitches in a head wound and two bolloxed hamstrings.

Here’s a nice one, blowing the dust off the archives this https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Kirwan

Love this bit

“Kirwan initially played Gaelic football for Dublin and won an All-Ireland medal with Dublin in 1894 when they defeated Cork by 1–2 to 0–5 after a replay. Although both the final and the replay finished level, Dublin were awarded the cup”

:grin:

Cork refused to play extra time because they’d miss the 5.30pm steam locomotive …


#25

The first game was a draw, 0-6 to 1-1 (at the time, a goal equalled five points) and so a replay was played. With ten minutes remaining, and Cork leading by 1-2 to 0-5 (seven points to five), several Dublin players were attacked by Cork supporters. Dublin refused to play on and the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA) Central Council awarded them the championship.[1


#26

Would never happen now. Our players would outnumber Cork supporters 3 to 1.
