The former inter-country footballer, who retired for the second time back in 2015 after a defeat to Clare in the McGrath Cup, has rejoined his native club after previously playing in Dublin.
The three-time all-star and four-time All-Ireland winner left his local club, transferring to Dublin based side Kilmacud Crokes in 2016 to play hurling primarily – before switching allegiances back to play football again in Dublin.
The 38-year-old joined the St. Oliver Plunkett/Eoghan Ruadh’s club last year, linking up with the Brogan brothers in an attempt to add a Dublin Senior Football Championship to his accolades.

Speaking to Off The Ball this morning, Galvin was in good humour when asked about his switch back to Fingue:
“My registration is back in Kerry with my club in Finuge.”
The former Kerry All-Star explained his decision to return to his native club on a personal level:
“Will I get a game is the question now. This will be, I think, my last year playing football. How much I’ll play I don’t know but it was always my intention. The couple of games I play, will always be my last few games. They’ll be with Finuge so that’s all that is. It’s important for me personally.”
“I’ll go home, I might do a bit for the boys, and give it up for the boys at home for a finish.”
Galvin will bring a fitting end his illustrious footballing career, with his addition to the Finuge setup undoubtedly a huge boost for the Kerry Junior Premier club both on a playing level and mentality level.
