The time Cavan and Kerry played a part in NYC's sporting history

Despite all the All-Irelands that Kerry has won (36), I often get the sense that the county is more famous for those that it lost.
The one that is etched in everyone's memory – at least in every old-timer's memory – is the Cavan/Kerry All-Ireland played in the Polo Grounds, New York, in 1947.
As the two teams meet again tomorrow, younger readers might wonder how an All-Ireland came to be played outside the jurisdiction?
