Take Our Ultimate 1990s GAA Quiz

The 1990s were an incredible time for GAA, an era we're never likely to relive.

The stats from the decade are just incredible. 22 counties experienced provincial success over the course of just 10 years in hurling and football. Of those, 17 played in at least one All-Ireland final in either code, and the 20 All-Ireland senior titles were shared among 13 teams.

To put that in context, in the 1980s, only eight counties had All-Ireland success, with 13 getting to play on All-Ireland final day. In the 2000s, again 13 counties were represented in All-Ireland senior finals, with only seven taking home Liam or Sam.

For much of the country, there'll never be another decade like it. From the hurling revolution years to football's Ulster invasion, from Dublin's Sam Saga to Limerick's Liam Laments, it was a time when Croke Park was filled with all the colours of the rainbow as rabid fans congregated to celebrate the end of famines and the last step in the Holy Grail quest.
