For the first time since 1999, Galway concluded an All-Ireland senior hurling championship campaign winless as Waterford prevailed in Semple Stadium on Saturday (24th July).
The Tribesmen fell 16 points behind before a surge got them back to within three on two occasion but Shane O’Neill’s charges had left themselves too much to do.
Jason Flynn scored 2-1, Cathal Mannion got the other goal, and nine points from Joe Canning made him the champioship’s top scorer ever with a personal tally of 27-485.
Galway manager Shane O’Neill gave his thoughts to Galway Bay FM’s Sean Walsh afterwards.
Sean then chatted with co-commentator Cyril Donnellan about Galway’s loss.
