Ballymartin – Newry Shamrocks Match Prediction | 13-09-2019 13:30

After a convincing 5-19 to 2-10 victory over Offaly, Down faced Laois in round 2 of the qualifers. In 2008 Down defeated Tyrone after a replay in the Ulster Senior Football Championship but fell to Armagh in the Ulster SFC Semi Final. Beating Laois by a single point, and with Dan Gordon being sent off, Down were through to the last round of the qualifiers where they played Wexford at Croke Park. Down went on to play Offaly in the All-Ireland SFC qualifiers. Down had Dan Gordon's suspension removed, but awful conditions and poor Down performance resulted in a defeat to Wexford by a 2-13 to 0-12 scoreline.

Their greatest All-Ireland level success to date, victory also earns Down the right to elect to play in the first tier All-Ireland Senior Hurling Championship in 2014, should they select to do so. In 2013, at the third time of asking, Down finally won the second tier All-Ireland Hurling Championship, the Christy Ring Cup. London so selected in 2012, but the previous year Kerry elected to remain in the second tier.

Four Down hurling clubs, Ballycran, Ballygalget, Portaferry and Bredagh play in the Antrim League. The first two used the experience to win Ulster Senior Club Hurling Championships. Ballygalget and Portaferry play in Antrim Div 1, Ballycran in Div 2 and Bredagh in Div 4. Although Down had not won the All Ireland B championship in four final appearances, when the Ulster Senior hurling championship was revived Down won titles in 1992, 1995 and 1997, losing the All Ireland semi-finals by 14, 11 and 16 points. Down played in the Leinster Minor Hurling Championship for three years in the 1970s, even playing Antrim in an unusual Leinster semi-final in Croke Park in 1979.

They won again 1961 and in 1968; the feat was not matched by another team until Down next won the All Ireland in their 1991 victory. Down share with Cavan the Ulster record for most All-Ireland victories at 5. Down was the first of the six counties in Northern Ireland, and the second in Ulster after Cavan to win the All-Ireland football championship, in 1960.

In 1991 they surprised favourites Meath, Barry Breen giving them the goal that sent them into a lead of eleven points with 20 minutes to go, too far even for Meath. In 1960 two goals in a three minute period from James McCartan and Paddy Doherty helped beat Kerry, who were almost completely unbeaten at the time, and which brought to an end the Kerry football regime for a few years, and they beat Offaly by a point in 1961 in a tremendous match that featured five first half goals. Despite a famous prediction that Down would go on to win three in a row, the county took twenty years to regain its status. Down was not regarded as a Gaelic stronghold when Queen's University won the 1958 Sigerson Cup, and some of its leading players turned their thoughts to Down's inter-county dilemma. In 1968 Down beat Kerry with Sean O'Neill and John Murphy goals, again in a two-minute spell. In that three-year period their loyal supporters smashed every attendance record in the book. The 71,573 who watched them play Kerry in 1961 still stands as a record for an All-Ireland semi-final. When Down played Offaly in 1961 they set a record attendance of 90,556 for a GAA game. In 1994 Mickey Linden sent James McCartan in for a goal directly under Hill 16 which silenced Dublin and helped them claim their fifth title. They took the 1959 Ulster title with six inter-changeable forwards who introduced off-the-ball running and oddities such as track-suits. Against Dublin in the 1964 National League final a record 70,125 showed up. Down teams through the years have played with great emphasis on attack often leading to the neglect of the defence. This system has cost Down teams in the past 10 years or so with the introduction of more negative tactics to quell forward lines with a massive emphasis on the blanket defence.

Kitted out in their distinctive red and black, their massive fan base has been responsible for some of the largest match attendances in GAA history. With just one loss in six appearances in All Ireland finals, Down have got a reputation for rising to the big occasion.

With no losses in five appearances in All Ireland finals, Down have got a reputation for rising to the big occasion.
