Touching GAA moment as Joe Canning consoles his young nephew in Croke Park
Joe Canning is no stranger to Croke Park heartbreak, so the Galway star was the perfect man to empathise with his nephew Jody at Headquarters yesterday afternoon.
The younger Canning was playing for Portumna at the Go Games Provincial Day and scored for his club on the hallowed ground.
Poor Jody was devastated at the final whistle, but in a lovely photo captured by Sportsfile's Eoin Noonan, Joe Canning can be seen comforting his nephew.
The Canning family will be hoping that this is their last tough outing at Croke Park in 2017, as the Tribesmen look to end their wait for the Liam MacCarthy Cup.
