The busking season will be in full swing in Galway...all the hippies and environmentalists will be there so you could make a few quid if you break out your ukelele"
Its not sour grapes, better team won end of story.
To suggest people are fed up with Limerick because of their "success" is a bit far fetched though. Not sure what busking season your talking about, I hope thats not a joke, jokes are normally funny.

Replying To PatOLogical:  "Agreed.. it's right up there with Galway's 3 or 4 in 125 years..people who live in glass houses.."
Now you have it. Its called winning very little and its why the more successful counties are not fed up with us.

Replying To johnterry:  "You could do with learning a thing or two from your neighbours in Tipp and Kerry who have won a lot and know how that feels. 1 All Ireland in about 50 years is hardly going to make people fed up"
Yerra go easy. Galway a county with at least twice more hurling played in it than Limerick had one Ireland from 1887 to 1979. Even Tipp a huge hurling county went 18 years without one and Cork have gone fifteen years and counting without one.

There are some posters who are nothing more than winde up merchants and blow and blow , they go on to other counties form group where they have no business to be. In regards to yesterday's match as we say in Galway " Galway were not at the races " how we were level after 70 minutes is only down to a nervous Limerick who should have beaten us by at least 10 points. The sweeper system is not a Galway system we the supporters wanted man on man but SON went for a sweeper. We wont nor will any county win a All Ireland playing a sweeper system. A very poor match in which JC was the best player on the field.

Can we now leave the discussion to the match and forget all this silly stuff..we need limerick,Galway,Waterford and others to be competing against the so called big 3..I think there will definitely be a huge swing for next 5 years and I hope it continues.

Luckily for the Limerick team, with a billionaire and big business funding them there's no need for busking!

Great stuff, and none of them fed up with all of Limericks success

The fustrating thing is that Galway completely underperformed...only about half the team played well yet the opponents stumbled over the line by the skin of their teeth while playing at their best!
Poor team selection and management decisions cost us the game.
Hegarty should have got straight red as it was intended to do harm.
Karma got Guillane in the end (ending up in hospital when he acted the big man )

Awful amount of negative begrudgery on this. Nobody cares who won what back in the year of dot. Best team won yesterday, the two best teams this year are in the final now. Should be a cracker .

If you think LK were playing at their best yesterday you are in a minority of one.

What wrong with JP and big business men in LK supporting their team, are there no business people from Galway. For God sake you have at least twice the number of people hurling in Galway than there are in Limerick and in fact hurling has struggled in the shadow of rugby for decades in out city.

Congrats to JP and the lads, the better team won. Its wonderful to see a team overcome a limited hurling population and limited underage success in 5-10 years. Great to see the investment pay off.

Looking forward to seeing them beat Waterford now.

Please God the travel restrictions will be over soon to allow JPs lads enjoy their holiday in his resort in Barbados.

Its a pity the Galway county board couldn't come up with a few extra bob to keep Micheál Donoghue's preferred strength and conditioning coach last year and maybe C. Mannion wouldn't have had to limp off.

Would I be right in saying it's Superman's on the galway jersey,the same man has a number if hotels,so think there would be no problem for galway financially..the difference might be in the way there was a huge emphasis put on academy in limerick..there is also ard school where a lot of these fellas went to school..then there is fitzgibbon hurling,I could be completely wrong but Nicky is only one of starting team I don't remember playing fitzgibbon..
