There is a general rule in Irish sport that the best way to capture an underdog emerging victorious against all the odds is to listen to the local radio commentary. It has the dual virtues of being conducted by locals utterly in touch with the area, and the fact that success is something that has been a long time coming. Therefore, we present to you the final few moments of Connacht's victory over Leinster in the PRO12 final, as heard on Galway Bay FM. You will hear the glorious moment when the reality of victory set in:
Superb work. Connacht eventually prevailed 20-10, to achieve one of the most improbable successes in the history of Irish sport. A remarkable achievement.
