Hurling review: After the apocalypse

Screen Shot 2015-08-18 at 00.12.23

THERE USED to be a joke that after the apocalypse there’d only be cockroaches left to roam the earth. To that category we can now safely add: ‘and inter-county hurlers’. They’re a hardy bunch, aren’t they?

Galway’s epic victory has finally kickstarted the season – let us only hope that the final lives up to the same degree of intensity, and that Galway are able to bring their A game for two matches in a row. Their win doesn’t quite bring them ahead of Tipperary in our rankings – largely because of the narrow margin of victory – but that hardly matters when they’ll still be hurling in September.
