There’s nothing quite like a day out in Croker. Better still when the weather was as nice as it was today — a real sense of spring in the air! I was very lucky to score some amazing last minute seats to see Galway take on Dublin in the Allianz FL Division 1 final this Easter Sunday.
It was funny sitting there amongst so many Dublin and Galway players - although I'm from Dublin, I'm of mixed Galway and Roscommon decent! Jokes aside I was very much there to support the Dubs for an exciting afternoon of live football at GAA HQ.
Overall the two sides put on a fine show and it must be called out that Galway didn't make things at all easy for the home boys in blue. Dublin were still only one ahead by the 65 minute - arguably still plenty of time for Galway to come back with a goal.
It wasn't until well into the 5 minutes of stoppage time that the deal was sealed by an extra two points from Eric Lowndes and Dean Rock in the last two minutes. The match finished up Dublin 0-18 Galway 0-14. Yeeow! ;)
