Another heartbreaker for Galway fans

Following the Galway hurlers has never been an easy task. They have reached six All-Ireland finals since last winning one in 1988 – seven if you include the drawn game in 2012 – and somehow managed to lose them all.

It’s been a heartbreaking famine over the past 27 years and yet the followers turned up in their thousands to support them at Croke Park on Sunday. My latest blog is about the pain of following the Galway hurlers, but also the wonders of an All-Ireland weekend when people go to so much trouble to attend the game.
