  • A decision was taken at  tonight's County Board meeting to bring the discussion about Caiseal Gaels and Ballyvary Hurling Clubs and the JP McManus donation back to the steering group.

    This was taken after much discussion about the donation and what constitutes a club within the county, as both clubs are juvenile hurling clubs. 

    A number of delegates spoke on the matter before the decision was taken to take the matter back to the steering group.

  • The G-A-A has announced the details of this Sunday's Allianz National Hurling League Division One quarter-finals.

    All-Ireland champions Galway are away to Wexford at 2pm on Sunday,

    Offaly welcome Kilkenny to Tullamore for a 1pm throw-in,

    it's a 3pm start for the meeting of Dublin and Tipperary at Parnell Park,

    and having secured promotion to One A yesterday, Limerick host their neighbours Clare at 4pm.

     

  • 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.

  • 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 contest their first ever Leinster hurling final this evening in the under 21 grade.

    They face Wexford at O'Moore Park in Portlaoise.

    The game throws in at 7.30pm

  • 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.

     

  • Galway have named an unchanged side for tomorrow's All-Ireland Hurling Championship semi-final replay with Clare.

    It means Joe Canning has recovered from a knee injury he suffered in last weeks game and starts among the tribesmen attack.

    Gearoid McInerney is also fit to play and takes his place at centre-back.

    Clare will name their starting 15 tomorrow.

     

  • All Ireland champions Limerick have enjoyed a clean sweep in the PwC All Star Hurling nominations.

    All 15 of the team that started last month's final victory over Galway are shortlisted.

    It is only the second time since 1996 that has been achieved.

    The Tribesmen have nine nominees; Cork and Clare have seven and five.

    Joe Canning could become the first player to win successive  PwC GAA/GPA  Hurler of the Year awards.

    The Galway forward joins team mate Padraic Mannion and Limerick's Cian Lynch as the nominees.

    Kyle Hayes, Darragh Fitzgibbon and Mark Coleman are in the running to be named  PwC GAA/GPA  young Hurler of the Year.

    The winners will be announced on the 2nd of November.

  • Galway and Kilkenny will meet again next Sunday in a replay of the Leinster Senior Hurling final, after yesterday's match finished 18 points apiece.

    Semple Stadium in Thurles is the venue for the replay, which will throw-in at 3pm on Sunday.

    Croke Park is unavailable for the decider, as Michael Buble is playing a concert at the GAAA headquarters on Sat evening.

     

     

  • Gearóid McInerney looks set to lose his battle to be fit for Galway's All Ireland semi- final replay with Clare on Sunday.

    The half-back has had a scan on a suspected torn calf, and could miss the All Ireland final next month if Galway see off the Banner at the second attempt.

    The news on Joe Canning appears to be more positive, with the hurler of the year not suffering any serious damage to his knee despite his withdrawal from the first game.

    That replay throws in at 2 o'clock on Sunday in Semple Stadium, with Tipperary's Fergal Horgan appointed referee.

     

     

  • James Owens has been named as the referee for this Sunday's Leinster Senior Hurling Final replay between Kilkenny and Galway.

    Semple Stadium will host the decider after the sides finished 18 points apiece at Croke Park 2 days ago.

  •  

    There was yet more glory for All-Ireland champions Limerick this evening as they were awarded six places on the PwC All-Star hurling team of 2018, and star players Cian Lynch and Kyle Hayes were unveiled as the Hurler of the Year and Young Hurler of the Year at Dublin’s Convention Centre.

    The Footballer of the Year Award winner is Dublin midfielder Brian Fenton, while Kerry’s teenage star David Clifford was crowned Young Footballer of the Year at the gala black tie event.

    It was a big night for the Treaty County. After defeating Galway to win their first Liam MacCarthy Cup since 1973, the six PwC All-Stars captured here brings their overall total to 53 hurling awards, and the 2018 tally is one better than the five awards they received when they defeated Kilkenny in the 1973 decider.

    Sean Finn, Richie English, Declan Hannon and Dan Morrissey dominate the defence, while Cian Lynch is named in midfield, with Graham Mulcahy completing the full forward line.

    Four other counties share in the awards with Kilkenny’s Eoin Murphy picking up his second PwC All-Star for his goalkeeping heroics.

    Galway dual star Daithí Burke makes it a remarkable four in a row for All-Star awards at full back, while Hurler of the Year Nominee Galway’s Pádraic Mannion is named at wing back.

    Cork’s Darragh Fitzgibbon completes the midfield line up, with his Rebel County teammates Seamus Harnedy and Patrick Horgan named in the attack - where Horgan is now a three-time All-Star.

    Joe Canning is again named in the centre forward position and claims a staggering fifth career PwC All-Star in the process. Clare’s prolific duo of John Conlon and Peter Duggan complete the forward list.

    The PwC All-Star team was selected by a panel of senior Gaelic Games Correspondents and chaired by Uachtarán CLG John Horan.

    The overall Player of the Year Awards were voted on exclusively by inter-county players themselves.

    From the Patrickswell club, Cian Lynch’s tireless efforts and inspirational contributions were a key feature of a memorable summer for Limerick. The 22 year-old cemented his status as one of the marquee players in the game.

    At just 20 years of age, Kyle Hayes was one of the youngest members of the Limerick team under John  Kiely in 2018,  but the Kildimo Pallaskenry man repeatedly stepped up when needed and made a big impact in the All-Ireland final and is now Young Hurler of the Year.

    Named this week in the PwC All-Star Football team beside his clubmate Brian Howard, Raheny’s Brian Fenton holds the distinction of never having lost a senior Championship match, having made his Dublin debut at the start of their remarkable four in a row run in 2015. He has been ever present in midfield and has established himself as one of the most influential players in the game.

    From Fossa, David Clifford made his senior Championship debut this season at the tender age of 19 and carrying a weight of expectation after his stunning exploits at minor level. He made light work of that attention however, to make a seamless transition to the top flight, with his eye for scores setting him apart as something special and has landed him a PwC All-Star and Young Footballer of the Year.
