QUIZ: How Well Do You Remember 'A Year Til Sunday'?

QUIZ: How Well Do You Remember 'A Year Til Sunday'?
By Donny Mahoney Updated

Galway will make their first appearance in an All-Ireland final since 2001 on Sunday. This occurrence has spawned a nostalgia for the great fin de siécle Galway team of Joyce and Donnellan and Ja Fallon that competed in three All-Ireland finals, winning two. Likewise, the build-up to this All-Ireland final has sent many gaelic football fanatics to youtube in search of another glance of the iconic GAA documentary A Year Til Sunday, made by Galway sub keeper Pat Comer.

24 years later, A Year Til Sunday remains probably the best Irish sports documentary ever made. It's a perfect sports documentary:  a season-long fly-on-the-wall peek into a team full of characters that just happens to win it all. It's also a wonderful document of a more innocent time. Before the euro, before the blanket defense. It's an all-access look inside a GAA dressing room of which we hadn't seen before (or since). It also captures the sound of winning an All-Ireland in 1998 in an unforgettable way

But how well do you remember A Year Til Sunday? Take our quiz to find out. (You may have to scroll down within the quiz to click 'next' so you can move on to the next question.)

 

 

Back in 2017, Comer explained to the42.ie how he made the documentary:

I was the oldest guy on the panel, I think people knew and trusted me that I wasn’t messing around. I wasn’t letting it get in the way, that’s the thing. I had the job to do, the job was to be part of a team. If I could tell the story, fine, and if not, I’d no problems with what was number one and two.

Back in 1998, Galway had gone 32 years without lifting Sam Maguire. The Tribesmen's current drought is beginning to rival that. Somehow, it's 21 years since Galway beat Meath in the 2001 All-Ireland final.

If you want to refresh your memory before taking the quiz - or if you just want to relive A Year Til Sunday one more time, we urge you to watch it on Youtube again below.
