Chalk down a 29th All Ireland hurling title for Kilkenny. Some craic and a great game. Delighted to see Cork stopped in their tracks for the three-in-a-row – pain in the arse, isn’t it Corkonians?
Great game of hurling too. Even in the pub people weren’t giving Kilkenny much of a shot but going into the break with a slim lead seemed to calm a few nerves about the place. Hairy moments when that Cork goal went in but the lads on the field gave it their all and there’s a great win in the bag.
Not too much interest in hurling to be honest (soccer and NFL being my sporting loves) but having had Brian Cody as a primary school teacher for a few years as well as being in school (primary and secondary) with some of the lads on the current panel, there’s always some sort of an interest there.
Plus, you have to support your county, right?
Anyway, fair play to the lads…. go on the Cats!
