Glenswilly stuffed St Eunan's 0-3 to 0-2 yesterday in the Donegal league. Only one point scored in the second half. Has there ever been a lower scoring match?

Yes. In my Ma and Da's garden between me and my mates when we were seven! That is atrocious. Soccer level of boring, probably.

4 points in the first 30 and a solitary point in the second 30. I'd say the man on the gate made a hasty exit with the tin!

It was inevitable we where going to arrive at this point eventualy, pure dung

Tho....1893 AI final finished Wexford 1-1 Cork 0-1

Been a few 0-4 to 0-3 finals as well, including a "classic final" ::)

3-2 would be a decent soccer match in fairness.
Dunno why someone always has to compare soccer to GAA though.

Yes but these men had cycled to Croke Park that morning....
...after milking 50 cows each before they left....
....& the ball was made out of mammoth hide and weighed 5 stone when wet.....
...and they all cycled back home in time for evening mass.

If the referee had a week to spare he would probably have played for the draw!

Cross beat Ballinderry 0-5 to 0-3 in ulster final once. But that was in horrendous conditions.

There must have been a fierce gale blowing off the Atlantic yesterday!

And off to a dance afterwards. Then up the next morning to turn the hay and foot the turf.

Remember it well. A large crowd gathered at the back of Casement stand* to get out of the rain/wind/hail. Was something like 0-05 0-03.

*We need a name for the stand (Is there one?). I propose The Roddy McCorley Aircraft Hanger Stand.

0-05 0-03 alright, John Donaldson type of day. Had to swim across a large moat to get onto the pitch afterwards.

That was a class day.

It was a shocking score but looking at the rest of the scores in Donegal and around other counties it was very much a one off over the weekend. Yet there's been a typical anti football response predicting the end of the game.
