Cavan Down Ulster Minor Semi Final 2005

(Oldest Posts First)

I have a strange request. I played for Cavan minors in the epic 2 game battle between Cavan and Down minors in the 2005 Ulster Minor Semi Final in Crossmaglen (which unfortunately Down won by a point after extra time in the replay!!). I have searched long and hard for a video of the game to no avail. Here is a link to the match report.....

Would you have any idea how I might get such a video? Tried contacting the county board but no response...

Thanks in advance

Try contacting TG4, they used to cover a lot of those games on their highlights show.

When I am allowed out I will pop over to the late Pat Lee's home and ask them if they have it for Pat covered a lot of games then. Tommy Reilly also from Kingscourt might have it for he too may well have covered that game. I am not allowed to give you his number because of the freedom of information act but Give Kingcourt club a call they will get him to call you. I hope this helps. Sean O'Rinn

And Down went on to win the All-Ireland final, thrashing Mayo 1-15 to 0-08 in the final. They did lose the Ulster Final to Armagh but bounced back. Another in a long line of what could have been :-)

Down beat Cavan that year in the Ulster U21 final after extra time. . Gaynor had his trademark red card. Down brought on a player called Joe Ireland who was very good. Conor Laverty was on the Down team
