After meeting on the pitch in 1999, Horan and Joyce now face off on the sideline

Nov 15, 2020

July 18th 1999 and the 20th century may be cooling down but Tuam stadium remains the earths core so far as football rivalries go. Its been a long time since Galway and Mayo has mattered so much. It is midsummer, even if it doesnt feel like it. A hard rain is gonna fall. By nightfall, the Sunday Game phone lines will be hopping with irate fans saying they couldnt get near the crowd despite having tickets.
Oh big time. The crowd that day was unreal, remembers Alan Roche, the sinewy Davitts defender who would make his debut in that afternoons final.
