Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney analyse the weekend’s hurling clashes as Galway see off Tipperary following an enthralling tussle, Waterford flex their muscles against Clare, and we look at the other huge encounters across all the tiers.
Once more, the hurling world was rocked to its core by a momentous weekend of the ancient game.
Tipperary and Clare bowed out for the season after going down fighting against Galway and Waterford respectively.
The latter sides will this weekend line out in the All-Ireland SHC semi-finals, and both have shown great heart to make it through.
Shane Stapleton and Michael Verney examine the big winners of the weekend, and look at how Liam Cahill has brought his scoring touch from Tipp underage teams to the Deise.
We analyse the performance of Shane O’Neill’s brigade, and how they were rewarded for forcing goal opportunities.
Was Liam Sheedy too loyal to players who have delivered for him in the past? How proud will Premier supporters be of their side’s reaction to playing with 14 men?
Tony Kelly picked up an injury early on during Clare’s loss to Waterford, but does a somewhat quieter performance hamper his chances of winning an All Star?
We also look at David Herity leading Kildare to glory, Doneghal lifting the Nicky Rackard Cup, and Joe McDonagh wins for Kerry and Westmeath.
