2 NEWBRIDGE OR NOWHERE Newbridge, June 30th

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

Like any good saga, it started small and then got spec­tac­u­larly out of hand. Kil­dare came out of the Mon­day morning draw against Mayo. Ev­ery­body pre­sumed the game would be in Cro­ker. Ev­ery­body ex­cept Kil­dare – they’d be turn­ing up in Newbridge as was their right. Cian O’Neill went on the Six-One news and put it up to Croke Park. In be­tween, an Ir­ish Times story had Croke Park telling Kil­dare they’d play where they were told. Boom went the dy­na­mite. Af­ter two days of na­tional ou­trage, Kil­dare got their way. Mayo walked into a tsunami on Satur­day night. Kil­dare pulled off their best win in years.
