Laois and Westmeath winning Leinster. Just fancy that nowadays.
At least Laois and Westmeath had won underage All Irelands before those senior Leinster wins and Dublin weren't as good as now. Louth should have won Leinster five years ago and most neutrals were upset by the manner of that defeat in the final.
But standout wins nonetheless

Raith Rovers, anyone?

I was at that game with my mate who was born in Kircaldy.

Great weekend. Great game.

Antrim vs Offaly 1989
Mayo under 21s bucking the trend in 06 and actually winning the all Ireland - something like one out of 14 all competitions
Antrim I think had beat Offaly twice that season already & should have beaten KK in 1987 in Dundalk in the semi final. Only got beat by a couple of points

How about Hertha BSC (a bunch of amateurs) reaching the final of the German Cup in 1993?

In terms of in-game, Dennis Taylor at 0-8 in the final.

Maradona's alleged handball during the Argentina v England game in the 1986 World Cup.

The English people were very upset.

Surprised that you say because they've hardly mentioned it since and they were so gracious in defeat.

God that was embarrassing. Remember the tabloid newspaper putting a poster up outside his house? Cringe.

Think us beating or close to beating an established county has the effect on them buckin their ideas up from that point onwards. Seem to be easy to convince people that things need to change when Antrims putting it up to you :-\

The most embarrassing bit was when them yokes in FIFA started giggling when Blatter read out our request to be admitted as the 33rd team in the finals. :-[
