It was an incredible day for the amazing McGrath family with brothers Noel and John starring in the victory over Kilkenny and younger brother Brian captaining Tipperary to a 20th All-Ireland minor title.
It was a particularly poignant day for Noel who picked up a second All-Ireland winners medal just a year after recovering from testicular cancer.

Undoubtedly, one of the best sporting images of 2016.
