With the sides level and the clock running down, Quaid's save kept the Treaty County alive in the semi-final.

Quaid has rightly received plenty of praise but not many would have expected it to come from the US.

US magazine Sports Illustrated published an article today calling the stop 'sports highlight of the weekend'.

SI's Don Gartland writes that he reckons the magazine's audience may not be too familiar with hurling but "you can’t really call yourself a sports fan if you don’t appreciate this play."

High praise indeed. We're sure Quaid will be hoping to continue his, and Limerick's, fine form on August 19.
