THIS WAS CERTAINLY a year for the record books.

From Ireland’s Six Nations Grand Slam success to that fairytale journey to a silver medal at the Women’s Hockey World Cup, there were several memorable moments to savour in 2018.

The Limerick hurlers defied the odds to end a 45-year wait for the Liam MacCarthy Cup in what was a fitting end to an incredible hurling championship campaign, while Jim Gavin’s Dublin eased to an impressive four-in-a-row.

There were gold medals for boxer Kellie Harrington and rower Sanita Puspure, and the Ireland Women’s U20 relay team stormed to a silver medal at the World U20 Championships.
