Episode 949: Galway’s Day, Waterford’s Pain, Joe’s Bus, Murph’s Cousins, Derek’s Next Step
It was a day awash with emotion and nerves in Croke Park, but in the end Galway were the ones to hold their nerve in near-operatic drama to win a first All-Ireland title in 29 years.
Tipp’s Eoin Kelly and Malachy Clerkin of the Irish Times are in studio to dissect the match, with Noel Lane, 3-time All-Ireland champion with Galway, on the phone to tell us why this means so much to Galway people.

Where do Waterford go from here, and how important is it that Derek McGrath stays on? And now that they have a home province, a story, a medal and a team to support Joe Canning, can Galway go on and dominate the game, as Tipp threatened to do on this day last year?
Plus there’s Joe’s bus, Murph’s Waterford-Galway family reunion, Tony Murphy’s pain, and some glorious All Ireland Final audio mash ups.
