  • 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 GAA has responded to Supermac's request for clarification on how its sponsorship money is spent.

    The fast food chain publicly asked for the results of financial investigations by Mazars and Galway GAA itself.

    Galway insist that all of Supermac's sponsorship money "went towards the preparation of all our inter-county teams".

    A statement says they are disappointed with Supermacs' statement and with the aid of Croke Park are implementing the findings of last year's Mazars report.

  • Galway GAA are on the look-out for a new full time Secretary after John Hynes announced last night he was stepping down from his role for personal reasons after 7 years, having become the first full-time secretary in the county at the end of 2011.

    Hynes contacted Galway GAA club secretaries last night to announce the decision and allow time for nominations for the vacancy to be filled at the upcoming Convention in December.

    His departure comes with the imminent publication of a report compiled by a sub-committee of the Galway County Board, on the findings of an internal audit they conducted on the county board's finances. 

    Seamus O’Grady will fulfil the role in a temporary capacity until that Convention.

  •  Galway could be set to lose another senior county manager as Kevin Walsh expected to walk away.

    The Irish Independent reports that Walsh is expected to walk away from his role just two weeks after Hurling boss Micheal Donoghue vacated his post.

    It is understood that Walsh has weighed up his position after a disappointing campaign and will step away from the Tribesmen after five years in charge.

    Should the two-time All-Ireland winner walk away it would leave the Galway County board with two senior inter-county positions to fill over the winter season.

    All-Ireland winning hurling manager Donoghue left amid rumours of a poor relations with the Galway county board chiefs and Walsh’s resignation would put even more pressure on the Tribe hierarchy.

  •  

    Galway are hoping Joe Canning won't miss any game time after been sent off in yesterday's Wild Geese Trophy match in Sydney.

     

    The 2017 Hurler of the Year was shown a straight red card for a high tackle on Kilkenny defender Enda Morrissey during the exhibition game in Australia.

     

    The Tribesmen will be keeping their fingers crossed that Canning gets a time suspension, to ensure he doesn't sit out the start of the new season in January.

  • Galway manager Tony Ward has made two changes for his side for tomorrow's Bord Gais Energy Under-21 hurling semi final with Tipperary.

    Andrew Geaney is in for Mark Hughes at centre-back, while Patrick Foley replaces Cian Salmon in the half-forward line.

  • Kilkenny are through to the Leinster U20 hurling championship final after a 1-19 to 1-15 win over Galway in Tullamore last night.

    Eoin Cody scored the goal for DJ Carey's side who will now play Wexford in the final.

  • It's the final day of the round-robin section of the Leinster Senior Hurling Championship.

    Defending champions Galway will advance to the final if they draw or win against Dublin at Parnell Park this evening.

    Dublin manager Mattie Kenny has made two changes from their win against Carlow.

    Fergal Whitely comes into the full-forward line with Darragh O'Connell starting at wing-back.

    Paul Ryan and Shane Barrett drop to the bench.

    Kilkenny and Wexford are locked on four-points each going into their clash at Innovate Wexford Park.

    Davy Fitzgerald's Wexford need to win if they're to reach a second final in three seasons while a draw would be enough to send Kilkenny to the decider.


  • 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.

    It's the first Championship meeting between the two sides since 1983, and Galways first final 4 appearance in 17 years.

    When the sides met earlier this year in the Division 1 league final, the Dubs prevailed by 4 points.

    Throw in at Croke Park is at 5pm.

  • 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.

    Conroy said the messages from the GAA community has been uplifting on the road to recovery and is already eyeing up his return in 2019.

  • Galway minor hurling boss Brian Hanley praises underage selectors for the county wide reach of his player base.

    After sealing a third consecutive All-Ireland in-a-row against the Cats yesterday, the minor hurling manager believes talk of panelists coming from football strongholds is blown out of proportion.

    On last nights’ Sunday Game Cyril Farrell made note that the All-Ireland champions had players from traditional football clubs due to men from hurling strongholds ‘marrying in.’

    The minor hurling manager says that if a player is good enough, he will be selected for the team irrespective of where in the county he was born.
