The Galway v Tipp match was shown on Canadian TV last night and viewers went nuts for it
Now they know what all the fuss is aboot.
GAA people are always telling the world about how great Gaelic Football and Hurling is and thanks to Sky Sports broadcasting it in the UK and GAA Go opening it up to an international audience, the world is starting to find out for itself.
Canadian TV channel SportsnetONE broadcast Sunday’s epic All-Ireland semi-final between Galway and Tipperary last night and judging by the reaction, it won’t be the last time they’ll do it.

Considering that the game is already being touted as one of the best ever, it’s not really a surprise that the Canadian audience reacted the way they did; give it a few years and they’ll be as enthusiastic as this guy.
Hat-tip to Calgary Chieftains GAA and David Mullins for the heads up on this one
