All Ireland Hurling Final Man of the Match
Hearty congratulations to Walter Walsh on his outstanding game in last Sundays All Ireland Hurling Final replay. Creating Kilkenny hurling history he was called into the starting line up never having turned out for the seniors in any previous game. He played like a veteran and better than most veterans clocking up a great personal score of 1-3 which could well have been added to except for his withdrawal to give a colleague a game at the end. His display was such that he became a household name throughout the hurling world overnight and now he is the hero of young and old alike. A loyal clubman and made no big show of his remarkable success. As one local hurling man said, "now at last everyone in Ireland knows where Tullogher is and how to pronounce it!". He brought great honour to himself, his family, his parish and club and we wish him the very best of luck in the future. Congratulations of course also to the Kilkenny team on a inspiring victory on the day, even the naysayers were quiet this Monday gone by.
