It was the u21 hurling cup that was presented iirc.
Too young to remember it, but have heard multiple stories about it since. Neighbours cattle were killed by lightning that morning.

Was there, big pitch invasion afterwards, gates were opened up, young fellas climbing over fences anyway. De Banks was sung after a presentation, some kinda cup was produced. Lotta lotta joy there, maybe only 10,000 at the game. Was bucketing down that morning so scared a lot of people away. Watched it in the city end, stayed dry for most of the game. Will never forget it , up there with Thurles 1984 - Seanie O'Leary.

Also there was speed boat racing on that day from town to cork boat club so all the little boats that used to bring people from the silversprings across were told to stop .

Rumour had it at the time that Kerry couldn't find it as someone was using the cup as a plant pot. 😂

Never say never! Mayo turned Kerry upside down in the league final. Something unthinkable in the old days. kerry for all their bluster have never really recovered from the Dubs doing a number on them in 2011. One soft AI against Donegal in 2014 the less respect we give these animals the better.

Think It was something like 15000 only .
Went to Blackrock End that day as well instead of City End (our traditional spot). Can't remember why but a lot of the Cork crowd couldn't get into the City End with the floods. Walking on the wall along Monahan Rd because of the floods it was that bad. One of those great memories, finally beating them and yes we can Saturday week.
