Padge Conway was brilliant that day from what I recall. He was always able to read the game very well and anticipate where the ball would be. I remember Hughie scoring a monstrous point from under the stand to put us either 3 or 4 points up and thinking 'we're going to beat these' alas not to be and leaving Croke Park that day it was the old cliche of 'leaving it behind us'. We never really looked like winning the replay and Dublin were the better team on the day. The first day was also the first time I really heard the 'Laois, Laois Laois' chant. Like unlaoised said the noise from the Laois people was as good as i'd ever heard in Croke Park. Just another bad luck story in the end. We should count our blessings though as we could be from Mayo and have one of these every year! How do they keep going?
