Can­ning’s free

The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Championship 2018 | Gaelic Games -

Ev­ery­one in the sta­dium knew Can­ning would go for goal with the 20-me­tre free. It had been a mixed af­ter­noon for the Por­tumna man but his shot was head high and a rocket. It turned the game on its head and threat­ened upon Lim­er­ick the kind of end­ing that would have made 1994 look like a fairy­tale. Graeme Mulc­ahy’s nerve­less 78th-minute point staved the de­mons away and when an ex­tra­or­di­nary fi­nale closed, Lim­er­ick were All-Ire­land cham­pi­ons.
