Thurles the first day. Aul fella drove down. Headed for KK as the traffic was so bad. Were given a Garda escort with about 10 other Dub cars all the way to park near the stadium. Made in it just as HT whistle blew. Amazing day, or half one. The colour, the noise, big Vin. Maurice with that kick.
For the replay we got a bus down with the club. Beer all the way down, during, and after. Could handle it then. Sickening result but sure we were used to them, and would get used to more. Coming home the spirits were still high. Had never been on the road like it before. Best part was being able to get off the bus for a slash, without having to argue with the driver to stop. Time you were finished, bus was only about 200 yards up the road!
