Inspired by the 30 year anniversary of the 1989 All-Ireland football final between Cork and Mayo which was played in Croke Park on September 17th, with Cork winning by 0-17 to 1-11.
In what is regarded as one of the best and most entertaining finals of its era. Cork entered the game hoping to avoid the unwanted accolade of becoming the first team in almost fifty years to lose three successive All-Ireland finals.
Mayo failed to score for the last sixteen minutes as Mick McCarthy and Teddy McCarthy kicked over the final points of the game.
Cork's All-Ireland victory was their first since 1973. The win gave them their fifth All-Ireland title over all and put them joint fourth on the all-time roll of honour along with Meath, Cavan and Wexford.
Mayo were appearing in their first All-Ireland final since they triumphed in 1951. Defeat at the hands of Cork was the first of nine All-Ireland defeats without victory between 1989 and 2019.
