It is, as Alan Brogan reflected last year, an odd quirk of Dublin's uprising in 2011 that supporters will "regale you endlessly about where they were when Clucko put the ball over the bar in the All-Ireland final or their opinion on that infamous semi-final victory over Donegal."

And yet despite not having nearly the same prominence in the Dublin football psyche, Brogan is adamant: "That Tyrone game was the one that made us."
