Whether a Cork fan, Dublin fan or simply a sports fan, history was made at the TG4 Ladies All-Ireland Football Finals on Sunday. Not only did we see #SeriousSupport; but 34,445 examples to be exact.
The attendance, which defied some terrible weather that also marred the quality of the game, was also a record 34,445, breaking the 33,000 mark that attended the 2001 final.
The history-books will give the hard statistics; that this was Cork’s first six in-a-row and their 11th title in 12 years, and that this victory brought them level with Kerry’s famous team of the 1980s as joint table-toppers on the senior honours list.
Once again ‘Ladies Day’ at Croke Park provided a treble-header of games which were full of twists and drama right to the final whistle, a fitting end to a particularly thrilling 2016 ladies football season.
