A note from Liam Kenny on a seminar to be held in Croke Park to mark an important milestone in the history of Co. Kildare and indeed the history of the nation - the 1928 All-Ireland Football Final - the first year the Sam Maguire Trophy was awarded and sadly the last year that Co. Kildare would take the honours - to date!!!!!
