Galway V Tipp final after Cork had won Munster and Davy Fitzgerald’s Wexford had won Leinster. The slow starts the eventual finalists showed were blown away when they respectively hammered Waterford and Wexford in the semi’s.
Galway win by a point, surprisingly enough scored by Gearoid McInerney, who had barely escaped suspension after a controversy in the semi. Tipp wonder what happened after leading by 6 points at half time.
Kilkenny won’t even reach the Leinster final, they’re done and will be for years. Cody refuses to stand down and no one is game enough to tell him to go.
Major controversies ensue as leading players are sent off for faceguard pulling incidents.
McInenrney wins HOTY, setting up the dream of a three in a row. Rory O’Connor YHOTY
