Raggytash BS: Football (not the U.S. kind) (1452* d) RE: BS: Football (not the U.S. kind) 06 Sep 21

This coming Saturday, the 11th, will see the final of the All Ireland Gaelic Football cup between Mayo and Tyrone. The winners will receive the magnificent Sam McGuire cup and will have the coveted ttile of All Ireland winners.

Mayo have not won the cup since 1951 as on the return journey after winning the cup they were "cursed" by a priest (or a woman) for disrespecting a funeral taking place in the town of Foxford. The "curse" was that Mayo would never win another All Ireland title whilst any of the team member remained alive. There is just one survivor of that team, a man now aged 94.

Mayo in the past 70 years have reached the final on 10 occasions and on 10 occasions have been beaten somethimes by a single point.

If you can I would suggest you watch the match which starts at 5pm local time. It can be seen on RTE sports and SkySports Arena I am confident you will not be dissappointed.
