Galway are All-Ireland Camogie winners for a third time, following a 3-14 to 0-17 triumph in Croke Park over Kilkenny.
The match was played in front of a crowd at the Jones’ Road place as 24,730 attended the showpiece game.
The title had not been won by the Westerners since 2013, when they backed their National League title with all the All-Ireland campaign where they conquer Cork and Kilkenny, and several could question their triumph.
The Tribeswomen scored three first-half objects which proved crucial, as they were helped by a brace out of a Niamh Hanniffy attempt plus Ailish O’Reilly to 0-10 direct at the break to some 3-7. However, the ants pulled it back into 3 points upcoming accident time, and worked their way back in the tie.
Because six-point winners ran outside, however, an overdue run of Galway points, such as an eye-popping campaign from Niamh Kilkenny, steered them house.
