With The Sunday Game 40 years old this year, I was asked to pick my highlight for a short clip which was aired during yesterday’s live show from Cork.

I haven’t always agreed with Ger but I couldn’t have agreed with him more that night. We were after winning our second All-Ireland in three years, which made our win in 1995 even sweeter.
