Describe what is happening in the picture? Kilkenny’s Jackie Tyrrell shows his joy after winning the GAA Hurling All-Ireland Senior Championship Final.

Why is this an important/notable moment? This is a good moment as you only have a few seconds to get the player’s reaction after the final whistle. Tyrrell celebrates as his team have been training for this moment since January and dreaming of taking the Liam MacCarthy Cup back from Tipperary.

What makes this picture special? Everyone likes a feel good picture and this is a moment of joy for the player and for myself (the photographer).
