Only One Man Can Grab The Headlines – Joe Canning

A titanic battle, a war of attrition. For the third year in a row, one point separated the sides. This time, the win was for Galway.

The hero was a man that may receive a lot of media attention, but an epic winning score in a tight game justifiably leads the headlines in the direction of Galway’s marquee man, Joe Canning.

With the game in the melting pot, Canning stepped up and hit a super point.

It was a difficult shot from an angle at any time of the game, but in injury time of an All-Ireland semi-final – pure class from the Portumna man.

Galway are now through to the All-Ireland final and, while it was a great team effort from the men in maroon and white, the plaudits are all going to the 28-year-old.


Canning scored 0-11 and supporters of the Tribesmen will be hoping that he can give a repeat performance in the final.

That final, will see them face the winner of Cork vs Waterford as Galway bid to end their 29-year wait for the Liam MacCarthy Cup.

For the champions, their season is over and, while they fought to the very end, they will be disappointed to have fallen just short in this epic battle.
