Today we take a look back at the All-Ireland Hurling Final from twenty years ago, 1994 and the final between Offaly and Limerick – also known as the 5 Minute Final.
Limerick settled into the match early and a first half tally of 2-02 for Damien Quigley and a powerful display from Ciaran Carey had them set up at the half-time break.
Offaly looked to be rejuvenated at the start of the second half, only for Limerick to start to pull away again and soon had a lead of five points.
With five minutes remaining Johnny Dooley stood a 21-metre free, against a goal-line packed with Limerick defenders, but managed to fire it to the net to give the Leinster side a lifeline.
Within seconds Pat O’Connor had Offaly in front, after pulling on a ball around the square.
There was no stopping the faithful from their on in with further points from Johnny Dooley, John Troy, and Billy Dooley sealing their famous win.
