HURLING: Galway 3-25 Cork 2-23 – Report, Reaction and Commentary

Galway’s senior hurlers secured top spot in Division 1 of the National Hurling League on Sunday (13th June) following a 3-25 to 2-23 victory over Cork.

Joe Canning missed the tie due to ligament damage to his hand but that’s not expected to cause any concern ahead of the Leinster championship opener against Dublin or Antrim in three weeks.

Goals from Cathal Mannion, Conor Whelan and Conor Cooney were decisive in Páirc Uí Chaoimh to finish ahead of Tipperary, who lost out to Waterford.

The result sets up a final meeting with Kilkenny, should they meet in the championship. Otherwise, the title will be shared.
