In the two years prior to Offaly halting Kerry's bid for five-in-a-row immortality, the sides met in the championship.
In the 1981 final, Kerry won handily by seven points.
The 1980 semi-final featured a remarkable eight goals. Offaly forward Matt Connor accounted for an incredible 2-9 of his side's 4-10 total on the day.
You can watch that game from 2:25pm on TG4 and also here on Balls.ie. It can be viewed in full at any time below.

The game was Paddy Fenning's final for Offaly. The two-time All-Ireland winner, who lined out at half-forward that day, died in May aged 69 after battling motor neurone disease.
Prior to his death, Paddy established a committee to raise funds for MND research and homelessness services in Offaly. A walk was due to take place today to raise money but had to be postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. You can still donate to that fund through GoFundMe.
