WATCH: Footage of Cavan training in 1976

Footage has emerged from a preview broadcast by BBC Northern Ireland of the 1976 Ulster SFC final between Cavan and Derry.

The four and a half minute clip, which was unearthed by the BBC and posted on Twitter last week, features video of both sets of players in training, with shots of familiar Cavan faces such as Ollie Brady, Ollie and Sean Leddy and Ciaran O’Keeffe.

There is also an interview with Cavan’s captain, Pat Tinnelly from Kingscourt. Cavan, under the management of Fr Bennie Maguire, eventually lost the match in extra time in a replay.
