With the All-Ireland final between Kilkenny and Galway up for decision today, here’s a selection of Ireland’s greatest hurlers explaining just what is needed to take on Kilkenny on All-Ireland final day.
The promo video, produced by RTÉ, asks hurling legends John Mullane, Eoin Kelly, Damien Hayes, Seánie McMahon, Seán Óg Ó hAilpín and Oliie Moran to explain what it’s like to step out into Croke Park against the single most successful hurling county in the country.
“They are the team to beat every year.”
“It’s the ultimate test, there’s no doubt about it.”
Those are just two of the responses ahead of what is going to be an almighty battle for Galway against the Cats today.
At the conclusion of the promo, Damien Hayes defiantly states his belief that his county can win today, but not before three-time All-Ireland champion Ó hAilpín explains just what’s required.
“Dig deep, go to a place that you’ve never gone before, like. That’s what it’s going to have to take for Galway to win it.”
