Galway and Clare will meet again at Semple Stadium next week after the teams played out a magnificent 1-30 to 1-30 All-Ireland semi-final draw after extra time at Croke Park on Saturday.
Galway, the reigning All-Ireland champions, stormed into a nine-point lead inside 15 minutes thanks to Conor Cooney’s goal.
But Clare, making their first appearance at Croke Park since winning the Liam MacCarthy Cup in 2013, hit back with five unanswered points but still trailed 1-10 to 0-09 at the break.

Twice Clare drew level in the second half, but Galway kept nosing in front and led by three points with two minutes to go. But Tony Kelly scored a point with a sideline cut, sub Conor McGrath cut the deficit to one and then man-of-the-match Peter Duggan hit a point to take the game into extra-time.
The Banner hit five wides in the opening ten minutes of the first half of extra-time as Galway again went ahead, with Joe Canning hitting three points including a sideline cut.
But Clare substitute Aaron Shanagher, making his return from a cruciate injury, scored a goal for Clare from a high ball to level the match again.
Johnny Coen scored what seemed a match-winning point in second-half injury-time, but the Banner were not to be beaten as substitute Jason McCarthy levelled the scores yet again to set up a replay in Thurles next Sunday [2pm throw-in].
