IT’S BEEN A superb 24 hours for Galway U20 dual star Conor Flaherty.

He celebrated an All-Ireland football title today at Croke Park to cap off a brilliant 24 hours, after helping Galway book a spot in the Leinster U20 hurling final last night.

Flaherty lined out at centre-back last night in Portlaoise, as Galway dethroned the reigning provincial champions Kilkenny to book their spot in the Leinster final.

The Carnmore hurler contributed one point from a free as Galway progressed with a 0-19 to 1-11 win.

Leinster hurling semi-final win at centre-back, All-Ireland football final win in goal and all in the space of 24 hours.

Some going by Conor Flaherty. Has a chance to replicate the @bigbar9 Galway double of 2005 now. https://t.co/0cHsiD3g3r
