Kerry v Mayo 1996. Mayo won by 6 and Horan scored from the 40 - lobbed him. Great day... it would take another 21 years before we would beat them again.... I didn't appreciate it at the time. I sat in the Cusack stand which was very new at the time. The old Hogan and Canal end were still there.

The 2003 AI Hurling Semi Final Wexford v Cork. I absolutely hounded my parents to bring me, in the end the mother relented and brought me we were sitting in the Canal end. Rory McCarthy last minute goal to draw it up. Dragged my old fella to his first game and the mother her second in Croker for Tipp vs Wexford in the Semi Final this year.

Limerick vs Antrim all ireland semi-final 1994 i remember there was a small war outside the stadium with supporters and stewards on the turnstiles because children weren't let in without tickets. The game itself i remember gary Kirby nearly getting decapitated with a clumsy pull and having stormer after it.

Longford vs Dublin league game in 84/85. Longford won and had a fine team that would have thrived under the qualifier system.
