RTÉ just released a spine-tingling montage ahead of the Galway vs Waterford All-Ireland final

Get you in the mood.


It’s All-Ireland final Sunday in the hurling between Waterford and Galway - two counties that have waited long enough to lift the Liam MacCarthy once more.

And RTÉ has just shared their promo clip for the final – which is a beautiful monologue over a montage of old hurling footage, and the theme is clear

Us vs Them.

“It’s true that time waits for no man. But some men must wait for their time. Decades have slipped by and you’ve watched while so many others enjoyed their moment in the sun.”

“Each occasion a victory not just for the little guy, but for the game itself. So you enjoyed it too – so long as it wasn’t one of them.”

Shots fired at Tipp, Cork and Kilkenny.

For Waterford and Galway, today is a different beast:

But since those halcyon days of hurling Marxism, the Capitalist cartel has once again taken hold.
You smiled to yourself as they spoke of fake famines, flirted with five in a rows, held half-hearted homecomings. When you came so agonislingly close they carved up their monopoly like a Sunday roast.

RTÉ Sport are well known for their epic montages, and this one is up there with the best of the best

Well played, RTÉ:

So you’re still waiting. If 29 years isn’t sufficient penance, surely twice that is. A generation of hurt – or a lifetime.
This year brings renewed hope — a final as unique and thrilling as the occasion deserves.

Good luck today, everyone.
