Episode 1244: “Hurling’s Just Mad” – The All-Ireland Final Edition, As Limerick’s Wait For A Win Is Finally Over
Even in a bad game, in this extraordinary year hurling found a way to be exceptional, as Limerick dominated the All-Ireland champions Galway for 70 minutes, and still nearly got caught in injury time.
Thus ends a 45-year wait for an All-Ireland title for Limerick, and they celebrated in style. We try and celebrate the year in review with two All-Ireland winners of our own, Eoin Kelly and Michael Duignan, and we discuss Limerick’s winning blend of aggression and style which won the hardest-earned All-Ireland of them all.
Ken smugly reminds us of his confident pre-match prediction of a crushing Limerick victory, Murph convinces himself that in fact Galway wuz robbed, and we hail the stunning co-commentary stylings of Anthony Daly.
Plus Shane Dowling is having a party and everyone’s invited, Ken ponders a trip to Limerick to hang out with his celebrity pal, and Limerick face down their demons and win anyway.
????????PARTY TIME ???????? It’s been a long time coming, so Shane Dowling is calling on the Limerick fans to celebrate in style…….. pic.twitter.com/cmlQsq5Qhu

There’s been a lotta grousin’ about Dublin’s dominance. Don’t worry, Ken is here to help! He makes a business presentation, in podcast form (uses the term “synergies” a lot) #blueskythinking #WildAtlanticWay #rebelkingdom
