Championship statistics[edit]

Scoring[edit]

Miscellaneous[edit]

  • At the All-Ireland quarter-final between Antrim and Meath an oversight on the part of officials meant that Amhrán na bhFiann was not played before the match. It was claimed at the time that this was the first occasion that the national anthem was not played before an inter-county game.
  • Kerry's defeat of Waterford in the Munster quarter-final was the team's first championship victory since the 1930s.
