This SportsJOE reader made the prediction of the season

Wow! Just wow!

Have you got your breath back after that?

Croke Park hosted 180 minutes of hurling this weekend. Yes, you read that right, 180 minutes! The All-Ireland hurling semi-finals were two classic games that will live long in the memory.

Galway led by Clare by nine points at one stage in the first-half of Saturday's titanic tussle which ended in a draw after extra-time. We go again next Sunday to decide on that one.

We thought that game couldn't be topped, but it was. Cork and Limerick's first ever encounter at headquarters also went to extra-time on Sunday before the Treaty men prevailed by four points in the end.

Limerick themselves came back from six points down with around 15 minutes remaining to force the extra 20 minutes.

Now, who would've thought that not one, but two semi-finals would finish level after the 70 minutes? It has never happened before you know.

Well, there was one who predicted it.

Sean Breathnach contacted the SportsJOE desk straight after the game to share his amazing punt on the two games.


A massive return off a €10 bet. That is a 132/1 shot. Well done Sean. You will have half the country jealous reading this. Kudos!
