The Double
« on: August 05, 2018, 03:45:50 PM »
Has there many examples of teams winning an all Ireland football and hurling in the same year? Or even being in both finals, and how longs it been?

Cork were in both finals in 1999. Won hurling. Also done double in 1990.

Cork did the double in 1990. Galway were in both finals in 2001. Won football. Narrowly lost hurling final to Tipp. Alan Kerins was on both panels.

Hurlers look good for it; footballers not so much!

Sure it's great to reach so many finals in both codes at all grades anyway. Think Sunday week will be my 12th senior All-Ireland to attend supporting the county (and I wasn't at any during the 80's). Can't buy the memories both good and bad.

Galway are in a good spot to do the double at Minor level in both codes too though id say they’re not favorite in football but at that level form isn’t as consistent so it’s very possible.

That said on form I expect Meath to beat them next weekend
It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

Showing my age but there was a fella who played for the footballers and hurlers in 1990.  It's one of the other these days

Roscommon win the AI gurning and AI whinging titles in the same year, every year.

If the Dublin hurlers get their act together it could happen

Offaly reached both Senior All-Irelands in 1981.  Won the hurling, beating Galway, lost the football to Kerry's 4 in a row team.  Liam Currams played in both, at the time the first man to do so since a Goulding chap from Cork in 1956.
