Shane Dowling’s Goal -Limerick v Galway. All-Ireland Final
At this point in the match, Limerick were ahead by 5 points. This goal from Dowling sent the Limerick supporters into over-drive, as it looked like a green victory was now certain. Credit must be given to Galway, who in the 8 minutes of injury, hit the back of the net twice, and narrowly lost the game by a point. A stellar performance from both teams!
