Unexpected Hero Of The Munster U20 Hurling Final: The Ref

Unexpected Hero Of The Munster U20 Hurling Final: The Ref
By Donny Mahoney

While most of the Irish sporting world was following the Lowry homecoming in Clara last night, about 90km away in Thurles, the hurling game of the year was playing out. It's the first year of the U20 hurling grade, and the competition flared to life with a classic Cork v Tipp Munster final.

Cork's Evan Sheehan thought he had given the Rebels a win with a 59th minute goal, only for Jake Morris to unleash a goal in the 64th minute to give Tipp the victory.

Referees come in for so much criticism so it's definitely worth singling out an exemplary reffing performance, and Thomas Walsh of Waterford clearly played a role in shaping the spectacle last evening. He let the game flow and evolve on its own terms, and fans on Twitter were quick to notice it

Overall fans were delighted with the spectacle.
