Linfield were crowned All Ireland Champions on this August 13 date exactly 40 years ago today in 1980.
Linfield and Athlone had drawn 0-0 in the final first leg at Windsor Park so all hinged on the return leg in Athlone.
Linfield won the Tyler All Ireland cup courtesy of the 2-1 second leg win. Colin McCurdy scored after 24 and 28 minutes and although the hosts grabbed a late goal, it was no more than consolation
The team line up was - Dunlop, Garrett, Parkes, Hayes, Rafferty, McKeown, McKee, Dornan, McCurdy (McGaughey 80), Murray and Anderson.
