St Mungo’s: How the worst team in Ireland got to an All-Ireland final

Rooted to the bottom of Division 4, without a win in six and a half years, St Mungo’s GAC are officially the worst Gaelic Football team in Ireland.

Nobody’s buying the weekly lotto tickets, nobody’s coming to the games anymore, and it’s getting harder and harder to find fifteen able-bodied men to pull on a jersey and represent their parish.

When they’re drawn against their near neighbours and vicious rivals the whole village expects yet another first round exit, and perhaps the end of Luganulk.
