Was 2017 Joe Canning’s finest hour when Galway defeated Waterford in the All-Ireland final? It denied Waterford an All-Ireland, the Deise county haven’t won the Liam McCarthy cup since the 1940’s but looking back on it now thank God Galway won it and one of the greatest hurlers to ever play the game Joe Canning got that all important All-Ireland medal.

We recently saw Lionel Messi win his first trophy with his native country Argentina and the time Joe Canning won his Celtic Cross was the very same. The greatest players in every sport deserve to win the very best, sadly that doesn’t always happen. But thankfully Canning got his on that famous day.
His finest hour?
