  • Galway County Board has paid Croke Park 390,000 euro for All-Ireland Final tickets in 2015.

    RTE is reporting that Galway treasurer Michael Burke told a County Board meeting on Tuesday night that the outstanding sum has been paid to GAA HQ.

    Galway were beaten by Kilkenny in the All-Ireland Hurling Final that year and have since contested two finals, and won one of those in 2017.

    The treasurer also told the meeting that the County Board had to write off around 100,000 in bad debt, sums that were owed to them, but that could no longer be collected for various reasons.

    The news came as delegates await the publication of an internal audit report, commissioned by the treasurer, that has been completed for some months and has been seen by senior GAA officials in Croke Park.

    The report hasn’t yet been made public, as it has been the subject of legal correspondence.

    Croke Park have commissioned Mazars, the international auditing and corporate financing company, to conduct a full audit of Galway GAA and they have been working in Galway for a number of weeks. They are expected to report their findings in the next couple of weeks.

    In Sylane GAA Grounds

    By Tháigh Morley

    On a warm summer evenings with two teams bound for Galway, in this year’s Bank of Ireland Celtic Challenge teams played on a perfect evening for hurling.  While in back ground Turf men worked continuously to provide winters heat, in a game where 15 to 17 year old men played hurling in heated conditions.

    Galway started the game the stronger  hitting three quick points from play within first 5 minutes with scores from O Reilly, Mahon and Walsh before Mayo’s Shane Morrisroe turned on a six pence to hit the Yew men first score.  As the first half progressed, so did Galway’s strength on the game. All started from Galway’s centre-back Cian Naughton breaking up  Mayo’s attacks after attack  and instructing all good play for the Tribesmen picking out passes through the eye of a needle into Galway’s attack.  From all this cleaver play, Galway worked quick ball into full forward line and Phelim O Reilly scored opening goal of the game.

    On the 14th minute of the game, the Tribesmen had a free 21metre line, Galway’s full forward went for goal with Mayo’s  corner back, Josh Howard reacting quickest with a great save and clearance.   Mayo lost position from this clearance, and Galway’s Karl Healy hitting over from 65 metres who was a real torn in Mayo’s side in the opening quater.  From the puck out the Tribesmen worked quick ball and Ethan Costello finishing the ball to the Mayo’s net leaving the score 2.8 to 1 point.  On 20th minute Mayo’s Mathew Walsh won a breaking ball on opposition 65 and worked fantastic score from 45metres on the run.  From this score, Mayo’s half back line grew in character.  With Mayo’s half back growing, Mayo’s attacking options grew and worked two scores before  Mayo’s Man of match Paddy Dozio scoring a line cut from outside the 21metre flag. This wonderful expedition of skill to leave the half time 2.10 to 5points in favour of The Tribesmen.

    Straight from the throw in, Mayo went on the attack and their captain Luke Connor was foaled 25metres from goal. Mayo’s shaper shooter Oisin Greally  tapped over the score.  This score seemed to have spurred Mayo on dominating position for next 10 minutes but were only able to break very strong Galway deference once from a well worked score from Oisin Greally leaving his tally to 4 points for the day. With 12 minutes gone in the second half score line stood at Galway lead 2.13 to 7 points.  As the second half grew, the heat took its toll on both teams with benches being emptied.  Galway’s strength and deep in panel come through finishing then second half much stringer scoring 3. 4 unanswered in last 10 minutes of the second half.

    On the night their where two men that were head and shoulders above the rest and this was Galway’s Karl Healy and Mayo’s Line-cut specialist Paddy Dozio. Both Men won Best and Fairness awards appointed by match officials. Others who stood out for mention showing great skills were Mayo’s Josh Howard, Danny Hill, Shane Morrisroe, Oisin Greally and Galway’s Darragh Mahon, Niall Kelly, Cian Naughton, Fintan Donnellan and Phelim O Reilly.

    Scores  Mayo: Oisin Greally 4points (4frees), Paddy Dotzio, Shane Morrisroe, Mathew Walsh 1point each

    Galway: Jason McDonagh, Darragh Mahon, Creg Potter, Kevin Walsh, Cian Naughton,  Darragh O Sullivan, Karl Healy, Phelim O Reilly, Reece Ryan, Niall Kelly, Oran Fahy, Ethan Costello Evan Gyynn

     

  • Galway's under 21 hurlers will make a small piece of history this evening when they play their first ever game in the Bord Gáis Energy Leinster under 21 Hurling Championship.

    The likes of Sean Loftus and Brian Concannon - both of whom have senior experience - start against Offaly at Bord na Móna O'Connor Park tonight. It will be Galway's first foray into the Leinster under 21 championship following a ruling at Congress in 2017. Interestingly though, it is not the first provincial campaign for the county having participated in the Munster championship from the inception of the under 21 competition in 1964 until they left the province in 1969. In fact Galway and Kerry played the inaugural fixture in the Munster campaign in 1964. They played two Munster finals in their sojourn in the province, in 1965 & 1967.  

    Tonight's other quarter final sees Westmeath take on Dublin in Mullingar. Both games have 7.30 throw-ins.

     

     

     

  • Galway hurling  manager  Míchéal Donoghue has been handed another injury headache ahead of next month's Leinster senior hurling championship, after attacker Conor Cooney limped out of club action yesterday with an ankle injury.

    The All-Star winner fell when coming down from a high ball as St Thomas' suffered a 1-17 to 0-14 defeat to Liam Mellows in the opening round of the Galway senior hurling championship in Loughrea at the weekend.

    It's unclear how long the 26-year old is facing on the sidelines.

    This comes following news that Joe Canning will miss the entire provincial series after undergoing groin surgery.

     

     

  • Galway hurling fans are counting down to Sunday's All-Ireland senior hurling final against Limerick.

    It's a 3.30 throw-in at Croke Park, and will be televised on RTE and Sky Sports.

    The curtain raiser is the meeting of Galway and Kilkenny in the All-Ireland minor hurling final at 1pm.

     

     

  • Galway hurling fans are anxiously awaiting news of Joe Canning's knee injury.

    There are fears the Hurler of the Year could miss their semi final reply after he failed to finish Saturday's epic draw with Clare.

    All Stars Conor Whelan and Gearoid McInerney and are also doubts for Sunday's replay with the Banner in Thurles.

     

     

  • Galway manager Michéal Donoghue says Kilkenny still have a big role to play in this year's All Ireland Senior Hurling Championship.

    The Tribesmen held off a comeback to beat Brian Cody's men in the Leinster final replay at Semple Stadium yesterday.

    Kilkenny now face a short turnaround for their All Ireland quarter final against Limerick at the weekend.

    The Galway boss says the Cats can't be written off.

     


  • The first of this weekend's All-Ireland Football semi-finals takes place this evening, with Dublin and Galway going head to head for a place in the final of the Championship.

  • Galway football manager Kevin Walsh is hopeful that Damien Comer will be available from the end of May.

    The forward missed the Tribesmen's league campaign due to an ankle injury and underwent surgery last month.

    Comer will definitely sit out Galway's Connacht Championship opener at London but should be back for the semi-finals, if they advance.

     

     

     

     

  • Galway midfielder Paul Conroy has confirmed he broke both of his legs in the game with Kerry.

    Conroy confirmed to Galway Bay FM that he suffered a double break in his left leg during the first half of Galway’s Super 8 win over Kerry on July 15th.

    Following surgery at Dublin’s Mater Hospital, the St James’ clubman learned he also had a hairline fracture in his right leg.
