The Galway U-20 football boss Donal Ó Fatharta is accustomed to dealing with the modern GAA player.

The Spiddal native won’t be overloading his squad with information during the coronavirus crisis; instead he will encourage them to make decisions for themselves.

Speaking in today’s Irish Independent O’Fatharta says the management team has made a conscious effort not to bombard guys with information and to leave them to their own devices.

The Irish and geography teacher says that if someone wants to play for Galway, their lifestyle and juggling needs to be a big part of it.

The former Galway player says he’s delighted to see Pádraic Joyce bringing flair and swagger to the Tribesmen at senior level.

He says to win a football match you need to score more than the opposition so they give their players licence to go in the half-back line and attack as much as they can.
