Glorious Galway – Galway 0-22 Tipperary 1-18 – All-Ireland Senior Hurling Semi-Final 2017
For the next few weeks, Galway Bay FM will be looking back at some recent glory days celebrated by the county.
Episode 7, by popular demand, goes back to the 2017 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Semi-Final.
Before the Tribesmen ended their 29-year wait for the Liam McCarthy Cup, they first had to overcome defending champions Tipperary in the third instalment of their stunning trilogy of semi-finals over consecutive years.
We all remember the winner, Joe Canning’s wonder point that put Galway back into the All-Ireland Final.
