1982 All-Ireland Football Final: Offaly v Kerry


No county has previously won five-in-a-row All-Irelands. Kerry, their predecessors in the 20s and Wexford a decade before have rattled off four on the spin but Mick O’Dwyer’s team are touching history in this final. It will come to be regarded as one of the most memorable on record, as Offaly – incrementally improving under Eugene McGee’s management – stand in the way of one of football’s greatest teams. The rain soaked drama and Micheál O’Hehir’s lilting commentary are etched into the memory of all football followers over 30. The sides are well familiar with each other by this, their third meeting in three years. So everything on the table, the highest imaginable stakes and no excuses. This DVD has the full match as originally broadcast. Offaly 1-15 : Kerry 0-17
