Legend tells how Roscommon had a six-point lead, only to lose it in the final three minutes of the championship final against Kerry (Tom 'Gega' O'Connor and Paddy Kennedy scoring the goals).
KERRY 2-4 | ROSCOMMON 1-7
The replay was held on 27 October, when Roscommon was again beaten. The injured team-captain, Jimmy Murray, was having blood wiped from his face to "look right" for the presentation when Kerry struck for two late equalising goals.
