  • Galway forward Sean Armstrong has retired from inter-county Gaelic football.

    The 32-year-old had stepped away in 2014 before returning to the panel in 2017, his last appearance was in the Tribesmen's All-Ireland semi-final defeat to Dublin this summer.

    He says it was 'an honour' to wear the maroon and white.


  • This year’s AIB GAA Club Players' Awards  reflect the dominance of All-Ireland champions Corofin, who have seven players selected, including Gary Sice and Kieran Molloy, who are both nominated for Footballer of the Year.

    The Corofin duo are joined by Gweedore star Kevin Cassidy in the short list announced for the 2019 AIB GAA Club Footballer of the Year award.

    The two were monumental figures for the Galway champions who successfully retained their All-Ireland club title on St Patrick's Day.

    The Club Player's Awards for football will be presented at a banquet in Croke Park this Saturday evening, and goalkeeper Bernard Power, defender Liam Silke, midfielder Daithi Burke, and forwards Jason Leonard and Martin Farragher complete the 7-strong Corofin representation.

  • Fast food chain Supermacs is calling for answers from Galway GAA about how it spent almost €1.6 million euro in sponsorship money.

    It's broken down five years of payments in a statement posted on its website tonight.

    The firm says it raised financial concerns with the board four years ago.

    GAA authorities and accounting firm Mazars were brought in to examine the state of the county's finances last year and a meeting in December last year heard concerns expressed over practices in the period of 2015-17.

    The use of an official credit card for personal expenses, officer expenses of €45,000 and a debt of €390,000 to Croke Park for All-Ireland final tickets were among the revelations.

    A 103-acre site in Athenry that was bought in 2006 for €2.8m and earmarked for a centre of excellence was sold at a loss of almost €2m last year. 

    Supermac's, founded by Galway native Pat McDonagh, has been a sponsor of at least one of the county's teams since 1991 and has now demanded clarity on where their total contributions of almost €1.6 million over the last five years have gone.

  • Galway GAA treasurer Michael Burke hit out at people "within Galway GAA" who he said "put every barrier and obstacle" in his way of getting to the truth of their financial problems.

    Speaking at last night's Galway GAA Convention, Mr Burke said "the game is up" for those who have "done a disservice to Galway GAA and whose only interest is, or was, self-interest".

    Mr Burke highlighted unauthorised use of Galway GAA credit cards for personal use, the payment of bonuses and expenses without proper authorisation and the lack of control and transparency and payments for tickets drawn down from Croke Park.

    It follows an independent audit launched by Croke Park into the period between 2015 and 2017.


  • Ultan Harney has been ruled out of Sunday's Connacht Senior Football Final through injury. The Clann na nGael player sustained knee ligament damaged in training on Saturday and is likely to be ruled out of action for a few months at least. 

    Meanwhile Galway manager Kevin Walsh is planning without injured captain Damien Comer for Sunday's Connacht Final against Roscommon. 

    The final at Pearse Stadium will come too soon for the big full forward who is continuing his recovery from ankle surgery. 


  • Sunday sees one of the most eagerly anticipated Connacht clashes in years as All Ireland finalists Mayo take on National League finalists Galway in a mouth watering encounter in McHale Park, Castlebar. As we build up to our first live championship game of the year this weekend - brought to you by Salamanca Tapas Bar - we'll be bringing you interviews from both camps. First up is Galway's own star forward Damien Comer.


  • Check out our interview with two time All Star David Clarke as he looks ahead to one of the biggest games in the Connacht championship in several years. Clarke has been named to start in goal for Stephen Rochford's men and he started off by telling us of the importance of Mayo's fight to stay in Division One after an indifferent league campaign.


    Check out the teams ahead of Sunday's game which were announced on Thursday afternoon -

  • Stephen Rochford has had an eventful two years at the helm of Mayo football. Two defeats to Galway in 2016 & 2017 have seen his team's written off early each championship season before going on to reach the All Ireland final and lose out narrowly to Dublin in thrillers. Will this year be the year that he finally gets one over on the maroon & white and go on to land a first Connacht title for Mayo since 2015 or will it be third time unlucky for the former Corofin boss? We chatted to him as he gets ready to send his side into battle and you can see that interview now.
