Armagh’s comeback v Fermanagh in 1993.

Don’t know how I forgot about that one!

We should have a Houdini thread or a Lazarus one, perhaps.

Armagh had 7 matches that year didnt they?

Then there was the match with the ridiculous overhead point from the end line.... against Donegal wasnt? That was truly a bonkers moment, people are still trying to figure what or how it happened

We had 6 matches in 1993, and still didn’t reach the Ulster final.

Was that Damien O’Reilly’s point in 1992 you’re thinking of?

I went to them all and watched the band wagon grow. I think the first game in Fermanagh had a less than 10,000 crowd, miserable wet day as well.

The first 4 games had similarities, Armagh getting late points or goals go grab a draw or a win. Then in first Donegal game it was Armagh who gave up a late lead as Donegal snatched a draw, it felt like a missed opportunity.

Cavan played Meath in the 1952 All Ireland.

3 brothers featured in the final, which is mad enough. However, 2 Maguire Brothers played for Cavan, the 3rd Maguire brother played for Meath.

five points

Also Edwin Carolan's equalising point in the dying seconds of that game. Everyone thought the ball had gone over the endline near the corner. Carolan hoofed it towards the goals, apparently to save time, and it somehow went over the bar.

Cavan won the replay.
