Miscellaneous[edit]

  • On May 30th 1993 in St. Jarlath's Park, Tuam, Leitrim recorded their first win over Galway since 1949.
  • Tipperary reached their first Munster final since 1944 & first not with Kerry since 1957.
  • The All Ireland between Dublin and Derry was Derry's first championship wins over Dublin after Dublin having win in the 1958 All Ireland final & 1975 All Ireland semi-final.
  • The All-Ireland final between Cork and Derry was a unique occasion as it was the first ever championship meeting between the two teams. Derry, who were appearing in only their second All-Ireland final and their first since 1958, won the championship for the first and only time in their history. Prime Minister of Australia Paul Keating was a guest of Taoiseach Albert Reynolds at the match. A crowd control gate at the Canal End had to be opened during the match to allow 120 people, mainly women and children, onto the sideline. It was the last All-Ireland final to be played before the complete renovation of Croke Park.
