Tullaroan and Fr O'Neill's played out a thriller at Croke Park on Saturday evening in the All-Ireland Intermediate Club Hurling Championship final.
In all, there were eight goals and 31 points scored, but just the minimum separated the teams at the final whistle.
It was captain Shane Walsh - scorer of ten points in total - who hit the winner for Tullaroan with virtually the final puck of the game.
Walsh's performance did not end on the pitch, it continued as he stood on the steps of the Hogan Stand giving a memorable captain's speech.
Shane Walsh with the longest and greatest speech ever 👏

"This could go on a while but I'm not going to do it again," he began.
"Firstly, I'd like to thank the Fr O'Neill's. Lads, since the day we came out of Kilkenny, we'd heard stories about the great Deccie Dalton and all the goals he was scoring. We thought we'd the best goalie around, he let in four goals today... Five! Five!
"Secondly, I'd like to thank Croke Park. Lads, the pitch, it's like an astroturf out there. We'd been training in the bog in Tullaroan for the last few weeks because everyone told us that's what you're going to play in. It's certainly not in Croke Park."
I don’t know Shane Walsh but I love Shane Walsh 😂😂😂😂, you’d never guess he’s a salesman!!! #GasFucker

Walsh called on those in attendance to remember Kilkenny hurling mentor Brother Damien Brennan who died last year and requested that in future the match programme recognise everyone on a club's panel.
"I'd like to thank AIB," said Walsh, "for all the money we're gettin', John Connolly. It's been epic. We'd like to thank ye for running such a competition. It really is the toughest... outside Kilkenny.
"Next, to me own boss who's given me the next two weeks off. To Mike Lyng Motors, if ever there's a place you want to buy a car; I'll be there, not in the next two weeks, but after that I'll be there.
"The people of Tullaroan: I know for a fact, for the next year, I won't have to put my hand in my pocket for a pint because ye're going to buy it."
