It’s a long way between Ardrahan and the Bronx and Croke Park, or is it? Not when Galway haven’t won an All-Ireland hurling title in 29 years and Johnny Glynn is both wanted and wants to be on the trail of it.
And now that the title is won, every inch of that 3,000-mile commute feels worthwhile. Only Glynn insists it was all about the journey and not the destination, and that win or lose to Waterford on Sunday, the sacrifice was nothing compared to what Galway hurling meant in return.
