MOTHER’S DAY yesterday in sunny Salthill, and many of Galway’s matrons took the opportunity to head for Pearse Stadium in hopes of seeing their hurlers bring down the All-Ireland champions, and in the process secure their place in this year’s Allianz Hurling League final.

WE’VE all known the blues, those dark doldrumy days when despair is the overriding emotion, all hope suffocated. This past weekend saw an end to the All-Ireland hopes of several teams, hurling and football, teams that had put in Herculean efforts in training since last January individuals – players and management – who had sacrificed so much of their personal time in search of glory.

NOT a red card in sight. Instead, a cracking contest in the Gaelic Grounds yesterday, played in the fine spirit which embellishes the game of hurling when showcased at its best and, by general consensus, the Allianz National League title was won by the best team on the day.
