Louth upset the odds to beat Cork

The smallest county in the country came up against the biggest in the 1957 All-Ireland final. The Wee county had kept Kevin Heffernan quiet in the Leinster final and were looking to make up for their disappointment in the early part of the decade. In the final, Seán Cunningham’s goal five minutes from the end proved decisive. A goal two minutes before half-time had put the Rebels in control but Stephen White was inspirational as Louth fought back for the win.
