Conor Hayes Retaliated To Trip On Sylvie Linane The Proper Way

Ryan looked a bit chastened when getting up

Galway's iconic corner back Sylvie Linane was known as famously tough defender. Here he is, in the scrappy and low-scoring 1987 All-Ireland final, being tripped from behind by Kilkenny forward Harry Ryan.

His comrade in the full back line, future Galway manager Conor Hayes, doesn't lose the rag but delivers the perfect retaliation. Try to ignore the RTE scoreboard which almost ruins a beautiful moment.
