'I will die a happy man now' - yesterday's Galway Bay FM commentary is magic, of course

‘There’s tears in the eyes’.

ONE OF THE little pleasures in the hours after big GAA games these days, is listening back to the local radio station’s match commentary – particularly on occasion of high drama and emotion.

Predictably enough, yesterday’s Galway Bay FM evocation of the final moments of the All-Ireland hurling final in which the Tribesmen ended a 29-year famine was suitably tense, full of historical context and articulated beautifully, despite some tears.

Conor Hayes – who yesterday morning woke up for the final time as the last man to skipper a Galway side to the Liam MacCarthy cup — was in co-commentary.

“I am absolutely delighted that I will die a happy man now that I’m not the last man to captain a Galway team to win an All-Ireland senior title. We have a new one now and it’s David Burke,” he said.
