All-Ireland Hurling Final Youtube Round-Up

All-Ireland Hurling Final Youtube Round-Up
By Donny Mahoney Updated

Ok, so Youtube hasn't exactly been deluged with clips from yesterday's bewildering final thus far. The poor weather certainly inhibited cameras yesterday, but mostly one senses that Tipp fans have not taken a breath yet from the euphoric celebrations to upload any festive footage.

For a sense of the atmosphere, here's an oddly-shot video of the back of a man's head during Amhrán na bhFiann.

The result still seems unbelievable: Shefflin's mortality, Larry's hat-trick. The McGrath's. Kilkenny are great champions, but as a neutral, I always hope that they lose, because hurling is better with a fallible Kilkenny, not the weird farmer cyborgs who've demolished all comers over the last four and 3/4 seasons. Their championship to defeat to Galway in '05 seems almost like a lifetime ago.

I was listening on radio, and M'OM was in top form, most memorably with an anecdote about the first hurling match ever played, way back in 1172BC, the first and only hurling match of import to be played in Mayo.

There were some brilliant orgasmic screams going on during Larry's third goal, the icing on the cake:

Here's Colm Murray's call of the dying seconds of the match:

Colm's no M'OM. Here's a view from The Hill, looking through those weird plexiglass barriers, on the last thirty seconds:

Higher up the stand, the celebrations were equally raucous. Tipp fans sound like ducks in heat when they scream.

There was still a bit of disbelief in Eoin Kelly's face when Christy Cooney handed him Liam:

Finally, from Thurles to the Burlington, Tipp people were dusting off all kinds of obscure ditties, including Slieve na Mban
