As an Armagh man it's personally 2002, obviously, but other than that,

My favourite was Clare Hurlers in 1995.  Ger, Davy, Dalo, The Lohans, The Sparrow, Jamesie, Marty, The Clare Roar, Up the Banner!

Would have to be Armagh in 02. The joy it brought me I've never experienced again. To see the swathes of Orange in Croke that day still makes me sentimental. Geezer holding it up and someone holding his chest. Magic. Armagh broke through that day and went on to dominate.
I wanna have my kicks before the whole shithouse goes up in flames.

And you wonder why Tyrone are despised throughout the country?

Leitrim in 94.
I know it wouldn't be everyone's cup of tea, but I love Seamus O'Rourke's monologue about it.

Hopefully Down will also be the first team to take it once there is no border..

Yes, if you are talking about domination in Ulster - They went on to win 5 off the next 7 Ulster Championships.  ;)
