Royal Battle – GAA CLASSIC: Meath/Dublin 1991 (Double DVD)
In 1991 Meath drew Dublin in the first round of the Leinster championship. It seemed at first hand to be the worst possible draw for the counties and the GAA but who was to know what was to follow. The contest was an enthralling one and ended up providing one of the most compelling stories, match action and drama in the history of Gaelic games. Not only that but it could also be argued that it was the beginning of a new era in the popularity of the GAA.
The ‘match’ lasted 5 hours and 40 minutes, had 237,000 fans attending quite apart from the radio and TV audiences. And what about the dramatic ending where…….well you’ve got to see it !!!
This double DVD retells the story of the 4 matches combining match action with recent contributions from the managers, players and officials who add their own perspective, anecdotes and memories – both on and off the field. The dramatic 4th match (3rd replay) is also included in full.
