WATCH: Jubilee 1995 All Ireland SFC Final
By Cian O'Connell
“Ending up back in the final in 95 was the end of a long road really," Keith Barr told GAA.ie a couple of years ago.
"It was a long road of dedication, hard work, and a lot of disappointment along the way.”
Then Dublin claimed a first title since 1983 when Tyrone were beaten in a tight decider.
Ultimately the summer is fondly remembered for the emergence of Jason Sherlock to add an extra layer of attacking class to an experienced team.
Sherlock provided a dash of flair and in a demanding Championship, Dublin finally reached the summit.
Tyrone, with Peter Canavan in his pomp, posed all sorts of demanding September questions, but Dublin survived.
