Waterford GAA results archive – Under-21 wins (pun unintended)

When I put out an APB asking for sources for the results archive, a kind contributor to UibhFhailí.com gave me a complete list of Offaly’s results which was very useful for dating purposes, particularly with the National League. He also told me that the programme for the 1992 All-Ireland Under-21 final contained the full list of Waterford’s results in the competition up to that point. I finally managed to excavate the programme and was able to discover how they were able to accomplish this seemingly monumental task of scholarship on a single sheet of A3. It took one column of the page as Waterford had only played 39 matches at this level between 1964 and 1991, winning nine. Things were so grim that we couldn’t even claim a 100% record against Galway who beat us on two of the four occasions that they met us in the 1960’s. Again, as if it should need emphasising, these are the best days of our lives. Although what happened in that match and the replay in 1992 was pretty good too.

Work in progress here.
