Rebels bridge gap as Lynch wins.

Lynch’s fifth

Cork won their first All-Ireland football title in 34 years, giving Jack Lynch his fifth of six successive All-Ireland medals. The future Taoiseach played midfield for the hurlers but was corner-forward for the footballers as they beat Cavan 2-5 to 0-7. Mick Tubridy and Derry Beckett got the goals for the Rebels.
