The notorious Windmill GFC (pronounced 'the Wine-mill') won and lost a few games 2 points to 1 as I recall. The Windmill field sloped R-L but their innovative groundsman mowed the rushes to hide the slope so it looked level.    If you were playing up the hill your full back was standing knee-deep in rushes!

The story goes that when playing downhill the attacking team lost the ball in the rushes and their forward kicked a hare over the bar!

There should be a film about these boys (and women)

We won an U16 hurling match once 0-01 to 0-00.

Does that count?

Heard that outfit had to stop a match one time because a badger came onto the field.

was that match actually played . local papers often use 0-01 to 0-00 for conceded games .
Im amanzed in over 125 years of Matches no one has ever heard of a scoreless Draw.

The first County Championship game took place on March 6th at Cork Park, a scoreless draw between Emmetts and Lees in the football championship. Lees won the replay and went on to contest the final against Lisgoold, who took three games to overcome neighbours Midleton.
The score in the County Final was Lees two points, two forfeit points to Lisgoold’s one point.

It's hard to kick points when you are half dead from consumption and woodbines.
If you were any use you'd be playing.

Glenswilly beat Glenfin 7-14 to 4-6 today. There were shitloads of goals in many of the other Donegal league matches this weekend.

Is THAT scoreline going to make breathless national headlines regarding the disastrous state of Donegal football?

It just goes to show youse have spent that long using the blanket defence that players can't defend man to man any more.
