'Time waits for no man' - RTÉ's promo video will leave you pumped for today's All-Ireland final

“Whoever wins, the party will continue long into the winter months.”

A STUNNING CONTEST awaits in Croke Park this afternoon as Galway and Waterford meet for the first time in an All-Ireland senior hurling final.

RTÉ always whet the appetite ahead of throw-in and have once again risen to the occasion with their latest promo video.

“It’s true that time waits for no man. But some men must wait for their time. Decades have slipped by and you’ve watched while so many others enjoyed their moment in the sun.

“Each occasion a victory not just for the little guy, but for the game itself. So you enjoyed it too — so long as it wasn’t one of them.

“But since those halcyon days of hurling Marxism, the Capitalist cartel has once again taken hold.

“You smiled to yourself as they spoke of fake famines, flirted with five in a rows, held half-hearted homecomings. When you came so agonislingly close they carved up their monopoly like a Sunday roast.

“So you’re still waiting. If 29 years isn’t sufficient penance, surely twice that is. A generation of hurt — or a lifetime. 

“This year brings renewed hope — a final as unique and thrilling as the occasion deserves.”

An epic awaits.
