I think you are right.

If I remember correctly Corduff played a 14 or 15 year old in the Ulster final, who scored a goal or two in the game

At the time you weren't allowed to pay players under the age of 16.

That rule has subsequent been changed to 17 now or is it 18?

I bow to your better knowledge on that one… I just remember there was some sort of controversy.. Corduff wouldn't be adverse to pulling a few strokes if they thought they could get away with it…

Yeah there was uproar over that I recall. The clubs were told they could not play players below that age. Swad were injury hit and had flu through the camp, and had a good underage team and decided not to use some of those players although some of them were big and looked ready. Corduff turned around and then used an underage player. Kind of thing that if it was a once off they might have let it go. But when they were specifically told this and Swad held to it, then yeah I can see why they appealed. Especially when that player made an actual difference

Cavan should still be Tailteann Cup this year so.

What was the ref at, calling emmets back for a free at the end...would have made the kickout and the last minute a cracker.

You've no place in a conversation about winning all Irelands in Croke Park. If you're going to troll, try not to troll yourself. Congrats Arva, the rest of the county are delighted for you, and a wee bit jealous.

I'm just correcting the statement. Not trolling if it's true.

Have a look at this stat…..One all Ireland final…. One loss…..100% failure …. Keep looking over the fence and start painting graffiti again on the Carrick road when you win something

Excuse me we are talking about winning All Irelands, a Monaghan man has absolutely no business in this conversation whatsoever. Stay in your lane please.

But the original poster is posting about today and a Cavan team, not the co team winning so this implies club and co combined win all ire finals in Croke park. I was just stating that in fact Cavan co and club teams have lost more finals than won in Croke park ..
