The Toughest Rivalry allows two very different sports' worlds to respectfully collide, providing an opportunity for each to learn from one another and grow in knowledge and skill.
AIB The Toughest Rivalry 2018
TWENTY years later one club admits it was the greatest escape in their history and their opponents still regard it as highway robbery of the most audacious kind.
When AIB sought out a great GAA rivalry to illustrate their new mini-series 'The Toughest Rivalry' to be broadcast this summer, it didn't take long to come up with a classic.
Even before throw-in the 1998 All-Ireland club football semi-final between Dublin's Erins Isle and West Cork's Castlehaven had loads of sub-plots.
It pitted city versus country and teams from two counties who had recently won All-Ireland senior finals; Cork in 1989 and '90 and Dublin in '95.
Both teams were gifted with some of the biggest stars of their generation.
