Twenty years on from Armagh GAA’s greatest day, we ask you: How well do you remember it?
It was Armagh’s first All-Ireland title and remains their sole title.
Sunday, September 22 is etched in Orchard folklore as Joe Kernan’s side overcame a a much-fancied Kerry side, ending a long, long wait for Sam Maguire.
Trailing at half-time, Armagh, who had fallen just short in three semi-finals under the guidance of Brian Canavan and Brian McAlinden, looked like suffering more heartbreak when they found themselves trailing by four at the interval.
However, a defence marshalled by Kieran McGeeney managed a Kingdom shutout in the final 16 minutes, while holding the slenderest of leads. Fittingly McGeeney had the final touch of the ball and his county’s first touch of Sam Maguire – a moment to savour as Armagh had conquered the promised land.
