Galway Hurling To Vote On The County Joining Munster Championship

Galway Joe Canning

The Galway hurling community has been vocal in recent weeks about their continued exclusion from the Leinster underage hurling championships, as well as the refusal by the Leinster council to grant the side home games in the senior competition.

The Tribesmen have been treated as second class citizens since joining the province in 2009, and there have been several calls for change.

Galway minor hurling manager Jeff Lynskey spoke to Pundit Arena last week on The 16th Man GAA podcast to discuss the handicap placed upon his side by the lack of provincial action.

“You’re doing eight months training for two games. We lose a huge amount of players at u21, and this is due to the championship structures.”

“It’s not a system which is fair and equal at all sides.”

According to Tribesmen GAA News, the Westerners are set to vote on whether to make an application to the Munster Council.

The Galway GAA County Convention takes place on Monday 12th December, and delegates will vote then.

It would certainly change the hurling landscape if this were to come true, but there is a long way to go, and the Munster Council would have to consider any such proposal.
