For the next few weeks, Galway Bay FM will be looking back at some of the recent glory days celebrated by the county.
We start with the 2017 All-Ireland Senior Hurling Final when Galway won back the McCarthy Cup.
After 29 long years, the Tribesmen beat Waterford on September 3rd 2017 to win only their fifth ever title and first since 2018.
Relive a momentous day in the history of Galway hurling with Galway Bay FM’s commentary team of Sean Walsh, Niall Canavan, Conor Hayes and Liam Hodgins.
