HISTORIC FOOTBALL FINAL ON SEPTEMBER 19

History will be made in the GAA Football All-Ireland Senior Championship

Final

on Sunday, September 19 when Cork and Down meet for the first time at

this

level. Down clinched a place in the final for the first time since 1994

with a two point

(1-16 to 1-14) win over Kildare in last Sunday's semi-final.

It's the sixth time that Down have reached the final and, remarkably,

they have

won all previous five in 1960-61-68-91-94. Cork and Down have met only

once

before in the championship. That was back in the 1994 All-Ireland

semi-final

which Down won by 1-13 to 0-11.

Cork will be bidding to win the title for the first time since 1990 and

for the 7th

time in all. They have reached four finals since 1990 but lost them all

to Derry

(1993), Meath (1999), Kerry (2007) and Kerry (2009).

Cork will also be in the ESB GAA Football Minor All-Ireland Championship

Final where they will meet Tyrone. It's the first time since 1993 that

Cork are in

both Minor and Senior finals.
