Eoin Kelly: ‘Joe Canning Should Start For Galway Even If Not Fully Fit’

Galway and Clare battled to a draw after 90 minutes of play in the All-Ireland semi-final last weekend, with the replay taking place at Semple Stadium this Sunday. One cause for concern for the Tribesmen ahead of the rematch is the fitness of star centre forward Joe Canning. The 29-year-old limped off the field during extra time of last week’s game with what looked to …

Will Galway’s Experience Stand To Them This Sunday?

Waterford and Galway take part in the 2017 All-Ireland hurling final in a novel pairing. Perhaps unusually, Galway enter this year’s final as the experienced side, having played in finals in 2012 and 2015. Waterford, on the other hand, haven’t reached the decider since 2008 – where they were heavily beaten by Kilkenny. But will that experience stand to them …

Relief For Galway Ahead Of All-Ireland Final As Tuohy Faces No Disciplinary Action

Galway defender Adrian Tuohy has been cleared to participate in next month’s All-Ireland SHC final.  The Tribesemen will feel relieved at the news that the Central Competitions Control Committe (CCCC) have ruled that there is insufficient evidence for the player to warrant a suspension. There were questions raised over an incident where Tuohy appeared to interfere with Patrick ‘Bonner’ Maher’s …

Galway hurling captain David Burke will have a keen interest in this Sunday’s All-Ireland hurling semi-final. The Tribesmen await the winners of Cork and Waterford.

Both Michael Ryan and Micheal Donoghue have made changes ahead of Sunday’s clash. There are two changes to the Tipperary side while Galway make just one alteration. After heavy criticism was directed towards Tipperary’s defence following their victory over Clare, it’s not surprising that both changes come in this sector of the field. Darren Gleeson returns to the side once …

Opinion: If It Wasn’t Clear Before, This Is Certainly Now Galway’s All-Ireland To Lose

Kilkenny weren’t participating in today’s Leinster hurling final. That said, there certainly were shades of Kilkenny about this Galway side as they blew away Wexford. After today, if we didn’t already know, this is certainly Micheal Donoghue’s side’s to lose. A lacklustre first half saw the Tribesmen go through the motions. Seemingly happy to just trot along with Wexford, it …
