1921 Leinster Hurling Final Commentary

Commentary from the Irish Independent on the occasion of the 1921 Leinster Hurling Final between Dublin (4-04) and Kilkenny (1-05) in Croke Park on September 11, 1921. Within the commentary the writer highlights the changes in Croke Park including the absence of betting, the prevalence of the Irish language and the presence of women. Michael Collins attended this game and for 'five minutes the fifteen thousand spectators saw him no longer a hunted fugitive or a Minister of Finance, but a schoolboy at play.’
