Ruairi Keating

  • A late Padraic Cunningham strike salvaged a 2-2 draw for Galway at home to UCD in the First Division.

    The students went ahead in first half injury time before Westport's Ruairi Keating levelled matters.

    UCD went ahead on 70 minutes through Claremorris man Harvey O'Brien before the Tribesmen dug deep to carve out the equaliser three minutes from time.

  • Galway United have announced the signing of Westport's Ruairi Keating.

    The 25-year-old striker has had spells in the League of Ireland with Sligo Rovers, Finn Harps and Galway United, before moving to Torquay United in 2017.

    Keating spent three seasons at Plainmoor, where he became a regular in the side.

    The pacey frontrunner played a key role in helping Torquay United to win the National League South in the 2018/2019 season.

    The Westport native made over 100 appearances for Torquay United, scoring 15 goals, before joining Gateshead.

    Galway United manager John Caulfield has spoken about adding dynamic attackers to his squad and Keating, who has operated as both a winger and a striker while playing in the UK, fits the bill perfectly.
