Ash Clash Of The Year 2011

Munster Under 21 Hurling Final Limerick v Cork
Suggest just watch from 35.50 to 38.25 on the match time clock

By popular opinion it was the best hurling match of 2011 with Limerick finally taking the title after extra time.
In just about 2.5 minutes, from 35.50 on the match clock, we see a brace of 'cool' goals, a sublime point, a couple of saves / misses and a magic bit of individual skill at the 37.40 mark. You can't beat it !!!

All Ireland Minor Final 1983 - Dublin v Galway

Did Niall win an All Ireland medal? No. Galway were the winners on the day.

Basketball Drama - Munich 1972

The event was the final of the mens basketball in the Munich Olympics of 1972 - USA v USSR. It was an era when the super-powers of East and West were enemies in every respect, including sport and this final was a sporting confrontation that had attracted plenty of interest before the game but that was nothing compared to the coverage it received afterwards.
It was a tight game all the way. Then the USA took a 1 point lead with just 1 second to go ... but scriptwriters couldn't dream up what happened in the closing second(s) ....
