Very good .Thanks for the notice . I always think that what makes a great team is the opposition ?

That was some offaly team yet most of the kerry boys came back to win 3 more which in my eyes made them legends

That was some day and had the privelege of being on the Hill when Darby cracked the goal. Kings of September is a great book about this and how the players got on in life afterwards and how it affected them.

Great book - sad enough how it affected some of them alright

Paraphrasing - "I wouldn't be out the seven nights, but I'd have a fair cut off it the other six..."

I had forgotten how good Matt Connor was until I saw the clips, no wonder he is always talked about when great players are mentioned, a classy and a stand out player in an era of great players.

Aye... Matt Connor was something special. An excellent programme. I thought Jack O'Shea came across very well... another mighty man.

Just watched this last night.  Great programme.  Interesting how many goals were "basketballed" into the net in those days!

Well done again TG4. Offaly/Kerry produce much better quality of football than Dublin/Kerry in my opinion yet there is'nt half as much made about it. (not blaming the Dubs for that... kerry and themselves in that era booted alot of ball over the sideline and the games in general were very scrappy).

Offaly had such fine players then in the likes of Dunne, Lowry, Currams, Mooney, the Connors (especially Matt Connor - surely he'd still be the number one forward even today with his skill, balance and pace?). Credit to the Kingdom for coming back to win 3 more.

Jacko comes across very well. Great sense of humour. As I find Paidi such an attention seeking media clown these recent years it was nice to be reminded what a fine player he was. Very like his nephew Tomas today. Fitzgerald's emotion describing the final whistle of '82 is very moving.

Well done TG4.

TG4 @ 20:00 (29/4/2010)

Laochra Gael (29/4/2010)
Programme 3 – Tyrone v Armagh 2003-2005

A dynamic look at the one of the most ferocious series of battles in GAA history. Two long-time neighbouring rivals, Tyrone and Armagh heralded the beginning of a whole new brand of Gaelic football. Armagh’s first All Ireland win in 2002 left them hungry for more, but a powerful Tyrone team had different plans.

With candid interviews from Mickey Harte, Ryan MacMenamin, Joe Kernan, Enda McNulty and Jarlath Burns.

Laochra Gael
Clár 3 - Tír Eoghain v Ard Mhacha 2003-2005

Súil siar fuinniúil ar cheann de na coimhlintí b’fhíochmhara i stair CLG. Thug na comharsain, Tír Eoghain agus Ard Mhacha, stíl nua peile dúinn lenar bhuaidh Ard Mhacha a gcéad chraobh Uile Éirinn riamh. Bhíodar cíocrach chun dul níos faide, ach bhí a mhalairt de thuairim ag Tír Eoghain.

Le hagallaimh ó Mickey Harte, Ryan MacMenamin, Joe Kernan, Enda McNulty agus Jarlath Burns.
