Over the course of the week, we will be putting up a number of moments which we consider to be contenders to be crowned 'Offaly's Greatest Sporting Moment.'

They will cover a wide variety of memorable occasions from across the years. 

Then on Thursday, we will throw it over to you to vote on which of the moments is truly the greatest. 

And if you have one you would like us to consider for inclusion, e-mail us to damian@offalyexpress.ie. 

This time we turn to a lesser known victory, the time Offaly jockey Micheal Flynn won the Irish Grand National on Insure. It was an upset at the time but the duo romped home in Fairyhouse.
