Part 2 of the Super8s Podcast with former Galway hurling captain Joe Connolly

In Part 2 of the Super8s Podcast from The Lough Inn Bar, Galway the lads preview this weekend’s All-Ireland Hurling Final between Galway and Limerick. Can the Tribesmen retain the Liam McCarthy or can Limerick win it for the first time since 1973.

Galway’s former All-Ireland winning hurling captain Joe Connolly gives his views on the current hurlers and Sunday’s final. He also speaks about his former Galway hurling great Tony Keady who passed away last year. For Connolly Keady was for him “the best centre back to ever play for Galway.”

Connolly also shares more witty tales with Doron Harte, Sean Og O’hAilpin and Shane Curran.

Thank you once again to our sponsors Gem, & Central Truck and Plant and also to The Lough Inn Bar for a great night.

Have a listen………
