The 2002 All-Ireland final was the Oisin McConville final. We talk to the man himself on today’s show about a game where he was presented with the very real possibility of a life-time of regrets, before turning it around to become a hero to his entire county.
He tells us about the bizarre history of Armagh penalty-takers in All-Ireland finals, the premonition his mother had for years before her son’s miss, and the thought that goes through your head when you know you’re about to score a goal in an All-Ireland final.
Plus there’s Ray Cosgrove, Mike Frank Russell, pitch invasions, penalty posterity and the crooked police chief look.
