I'm only going to pick hurling matches. Nothing against football, but I haven't watched enough to give a fair opinion.

2010: Tipp v Kilkenny
I was tempted to go with your choice Tipp v Galway, But for the sheer significance of the result, it has to be Tipp v KK. Kilkenny had been nearly invincible for four years, but Tipp showed that they were not immortal, they could be beat.

2011:
Kilkenny v Tipp

2012:
Galway v Kilkenny (AI Final drawn game)

2013:
Dublin v Kilkenny (Leinster Final)
After beating Wexford in the QF, then Kilkenny in the SF, Dublin beat Galway 2-25 to 2-13, to win their first Leinster Championship after 52 years.

2014:
Kilkenny v Tipp (Final drawn game)

2015:
Galway v Tipp (semi-final)

2016:
Kilkenny v Waterford (Semi-Final drawn game)

2017:
Galway v Tipp (semi-final)

2018:
Limerick v Cork (semi-final)

2019:
Limerick v Kilkenny (semi-final)

Some fairly random games there. Some poor ones. 2017 Mayo v Dublin was unbelievable in terms of quality while 2013 was poor.

Can you explain the game you think were poor ones? No point in picking the same games as everybody else and nice to remind people there were other good/great games.

If you read properly you will see I didn't pick the Dublin vs Mayo Final in 2013. My 2013 game was Dublin vs Kerry and I have Dublin vs Mayo in 2012

I would totally agree with you. The 2017 All Ireland Final was top quality and a joy to watch. It probably just pips last year's 2 Finals for the best All Ireland Final of the 2010s.

I just went with the League Final from 2017 as a lot people have already picked that game. The League Final from that year was also a modern day classic and played at a great pace. It nice to remind people of that game too.

Only The Sunday Game highlights and analysis on YouTube as far as I know and another memorable Joe Brolly quote haha.

While it was a very good game, I only choose this game with my bias as a Rossies and ending years of heart break of losing to our big rivals. If I was to take my bias hat off, I would have went with Kerry vs Donegal from the Super 8s.

Just wondering would many Mayo supporters still regard this as a great game

Probably not, based on the result, but it was cracking game.
