Was a great experience to be at an event like that as a neutral. Watching people around you losing their marbles while your generally at ease enjoying the contest was pretty surreal. The amount of grown men and women I seen crying as I left the ground.
One thing I will say though was I witnessed a large amount of Galway fans congratulating their counterparts on the way out of croker, can’t have been easy thing to do. Galway fans have a not so positive reputation on here and I am sure there are bad apples but the ones I seen carried themselves exceptionally well. The way they’ve been tarred on here in the past is BS to be honest. If there’s one county that shouldn’t throw stones in that department I would admit that it’s us.
