Louth should never have won the 2010 Leinster Final.

I loved O'Rourkes defence of Meath at the time. He said that ''Louth had only themselves to blame as they should have been further ahead!''

1992 NFL Quarter-final at Breffni Park: Dublin 2-8 Donegal 0-12. Dublin got two goals right at the end to win after being comprehensively outplayed.

It was the old story of the non-traditional county having to play twice as well as the traditional one to win, and in this case, it still wasn't enough.

That game gave Dublin a vice-like psychological hold over Donegal which would never loosen...

Can't remember the year, but Ian Robertson scored 1-1 in injury time to salvage a draw v Laois in a Leinster semi final, after we'd been comprehensively outplayed. The red lad in midfield had a stormer if I remember correctly.
Dubs won replay handily enough.

Armagh should never have won the 2005 Ulster.

That was 1999. There was a lot of controversy over Robertson "picking up" the ball before he handpassed the equaliser.

Dublin won the replay by two points but the last kick of the game was a goal for Laois from a penalty so it was more comfortable thn that in reality.

2003 was the one where Padraig Clancy had a stormer.

Laois came from something like 6 points down to lead by 4 with game almost up. Robertson equalizing score came from a blatant pick up missed by the ref. That Laois team was coming near the end of its shelf life-was a very competitive team in 90s without ever really threatening a Leinster title.
