Huge Outpouring Of Joy After Carlow Claim Joe McDonagh Cup Final

Huge Outpouring Of Joy After Carlow Claim Joe McDonagh Cup Final

There were huge outpourings of joy at Croke Park this evening as Carlow won an unbelievable Joe McDonagh Cup final in extra time by a score of 2-29 to 1-31.

It was open, electric, mad hurling. Carlow lead as many as seven, only for 14-man Offaly to reel them in and force added time. Offaly lead very late into second half extra time only for Chris Nolan to score a point that will be talked about for years to come in Carlow.

After the final whistle, there was jubilation amongst the Carlow support. Offaly entered the game as favourite but Tom Mullally claimed another big win at GAA headquarters.

Pivotal red card

A controversial first-half red card for Offaly cornerback Dara Maher had a major impact on the shape of the game.

Maher was sent off for grabbing a faceguard inside the box with just 31 minutes gone in the Joe McDonagh Cup final, as the faithful county fell to Carlow by just a single point after extra time.

While it was a definite penalty for Carlow, plenty of Hurling fans will be perplexed with the red card that ensued that was if nothing else wholly inconsistent with the way Walsh was letting things go.
