Replying To bennybunny: "It was 1987 as it happens. A replay. It went to extra time and Tipp won by scoring three goals in extra time. They should have won in normal time anyway as Pat Fox had a perfectly legitimate goal disallowed because he hit so fast that it rebounded from the back post out that nobody at the time moved or saw it go in..any I digress. Clare played Tipp down there that year in the semi finals (draw and replay) and Cork played Clare there in 1986 Munster final too.
Cork played Clare in the last two Munster hurling finals (before this year). Killarney would have been a great venue for them I think. be some atmosphere. I can't see an atmosphere returning there for a big match any time soon (unless the Dubs visit next year in the Super 8 - which they won't as ye will both be provincial champions)."
I was at that drawn game in Thurles. Was passing through with my uncle, since passed away, and decided to attend on the spur of the moment. A cash at the gate job. My first ever Munster Final. Got to see some legends of the day, Fox, English and Fenton to name but a few.
Speaking of cash at the gate, I have a trivia for you. Does anyone know which All Ireland was the last ever non-ticket affair? That same uncle took me too it
