1990 All Ireland Final

(Oldest Posts First)

that was a terrible game for Galway to lose.only saw 2nd half but cork got every ball that bounced.
galway people heading home with 7-8 minutes left and 6 pts down,a lot could happen in that length!!!
the wides by Galway in 2nd half killed them

In fairness, no team is going to loose an All Ireland final in the last 7 minutes with such a commanding lead...no wait...

Martin Naughton's miss was a big turning point. Should have been a goal but bounced of Cunninghams face and no 65 awarded. Cork won the puck out and scored a point. That's a 4 point turn a round at a crucial stage of the game.

We still threw it away!

from memory, did Kevin Hennessy score a goal inside the first minute (if not minutes of that game) Galway had a poor start from what i remember of it..

Yeah Galway have had a lot of "could have won" and "should have won" finals over the years. It would fill a library. Sigh.

It makes it extra sweet when we DO win though! Galway Abu!

Stay safe everyone.

Trump,but other counties have had similar experiences. My own county county point to,'44,'45, '49' '56 '66' 71, '83 '84 '94 '96' 01 '14 and last year as years we might have won but did not. I am sure other counties, to a lesser or greater extent, have the same story

I agree with you. I couldn't begrudge your well deserved victory over the Galway Hurlers 2 years ago. It still hurt though.
