1 DAVID CLIF­FORD v Mon­aghan Clones, July 22nd

The Irish Times - Sports Weekend - - ALL-IRELAND FOOTBALL FINAL PREVIEW -

To ask a teenager in his first sea­son to do the im­pos­si­ble when only the im­pos­si­ble will do ought to be out of bounds. But we know al­ready that David Clif­ford is no or­di­nary teenager. Mon­aghan were, to rob from Dou­glas Adams, not quite home and dry but at least home and vig­or­ously tow­elling off. James O’Donoghue put in a be­spoke ball, Kieran Don­aghy got a paw to it as it fell and Clif­ford, with a win­dow the size of a key­hole to aim at, found the in­side of Rory Beg­gan’s post. Ridicu­lous.
