Galway Senior Hurlers Qualify For Leinster Final Following Thriller With Dublin – Commentary And Reaction

Galway’s Senior Hurlers came from twelve points down at one stage to draw with Dublin and in doing so qualify for the Leinster Senior Hurling Final where they will play Kilkenny who lost to Wexford in their final group game.

The Leinster Final will be played in Croke Park on June 11th.

It was an amazing comeback from Galway who had trailed by ten points at Half Time but some brilliant scores near the end had them a point up only for Dublin to equalise at the end.

Here is the commentary of the game with Niall Canavan, Cyril Farrell and Sean Walsh.
