Sunday 27 September 1970
The motion to add an extra 20 minutes to All-Ireland semi-finals and finals was first passed in 1927 but it would be another 43 before it became a reality. Kerry led from the fourth minute of the first-ever 80-minute All-Ireland football final. Meath had cut the deficit from eight points to three when Mick Mellett spurned a glorious chance to equalise. Kerry saw off their rivals with a late Din Joe Crowley goal.
