It was a record-breaking weekend in Croke Park, with almost 190,000 fans attending four big games - three All-Ireland football quarter-finals, including a replay, and an All-Ireland hurling semi-final.

The followers of the 'small ball' will certainly be more satisfied with their value for money. For the third year in a row, Galway and Tipperary served up a nail-biting finish in a semi-final, this time separated only by Joe Canning's late strike in the final minute.

Epic.
