Kilkevan

Let's say the bet is €100.
Galway to win 3 more all Irelands before KK win 36.

Give it a rest lads. The Hurling threads are normally the best ones!

Agree
It's time those two got a room and stop dragging down a good thread

Wonderful day to be a Galway supporter in CP.

Not a classic final but the quality of some of the scores taken was excellent, especially Galway's in the opening spell when they couldn't miss. Goals make a game and Deise's kept them in it when the tide was against them. Was really worried about the 45th minute when Waterford were a point ahead and crucially missed an easy chance to extend it. David Burke said "Lads, this is not happening again" and Galway regrouped, helped in no small way by the subs' impact. (Think we would really have pushed on at the end had Jayo steadied up and put us 5 up with his missed chance.) Missed frees at the end were hugely costly for the Deise when they needed to build momentum again. Joy, elation, relief at the final whistle.

Fair play to Waterford, they died with their boots on, and their supporters were very gracious afterwards in spite of immense disappointment. Delighted for JC, our GOAT in my opinion. McInerney as HOTY (Sunday Game) was left-field but fully deserved as he's had a terrific year; great as well to see accolades for all other Galway players on the 2017 Team. Padraig Mannion worthy of an honourable mention while Harte is distinctly unlucky to miss out.

Minors' outstanding win was the icing on the cake. Incredible to beat KK and a strongly-tipped Cork in the one year. Geoff Lynskey, maybe even more than Micheal Donohoe, is manager of the year.

Can't wait til next year already. Now for the homecoming.
League. Minor Senior. Leinster. Tipp beaten twice. Makes up for a lot of heartbreak.

Cannings last gasp point v Tipp is the biggest highlight in my view. That won the All Ireland

Great to be there on Sunday to witness deliverance day for the hurlers, very emotional scenes at the end for the hurling community in Galway, plenty in tears of joy after the final whistle. The minor game was a dinger as well.

While I was delighted with the Galway win (which was merited and deserved on the day) I also felt sorry for Waterford, there is no joy in beating a county that are in the same boat as Galway in terms of striving for a long waited Liam McCarthy.
Waterford's supporters were a credit to their home-place in the aftermath as well, extremely sporting after a very tough defeat.

D mc Grath comes across as a real gentleman and was clearly in bits after the match
Some of the flak he has got in the media was uncalled for
If Waterford would have went 15 on 15 on Sunday there would be more than 3 points in it
He was maybe a bit to trusting if Gleeson
Should  have been whipped off early in second half

Its a hard call though a few people would say Canning should have been taken on during the semi but he ended up the difference
