My moment is the 1963 All-Ireland final between Dublin and Galway. The referee Eamonn Fitz Moules and the Dublin Forward John Timmons were from the Wicklow village of Annacurra where my father was from. Dublin player Dessie Ferguson was a neighbour of my mother's on Elm road, Donnycarney. Paddy Holden and Mickey Whelan were neighbours of ours in Cabra. Dublin won by two points and we went home happy!
