Video: Galway fans on the Luas belt out 'The Fields of Athenry' en route to Croker
They are in high spirits at least. After Mayo's defeat to Dublin yesterday, Galway are left to carry the torch for western underdogs and their fans are relishing the prospect of slaying Brian Cody's Kilkenny beast this afternoon.
Many pundits have tipped the Tribesmen to sneak past the defending All-Ireland hurling champions at Croke Park today but the Cats are still the bookies favourites to capture the Liam McCarthy Cup once more.
At least the Galway players can take comfort in knowing that their fans are riled up for today's game. This video was snapped of their supporters belting out a very familiar anthem en route to Croke Park.
