Watch: We Have A New Contender For 'Filthiest GAA Tackle Of The 90s'

Ballina vs Crossmolina in the 1998 Mayo county final. Ballina took the crown that year thanks to a hard fought 0-11 to 0-9 win in McHale Park and we say 'hard fought' for a reason.

We're not entirely sure how the statute of limitations works in an Irish context but we're going to assume it's now up on this one because Crossmolina decided to upload this footage to YouTube thus incriminating their corner forward for one of the worst tackles we've seen for quite a while.

You can see the tackle in question at 1.20 above or you can see it below in isolation and one way or another, repeat viewings don't do much to change the opinion that it's a bit of a shocker.

Big thanks to Tom W for spotting the tackle and sending it our way.
