Stephen Joyce's county minor football squad enjoyed an easy 13-point victory over a lacklustre Mayo on Sunday at McHale Park.

U21 footballers march into All-Ireland final after stunning performance against Kerry

Thu, Apr 20, 2017

Saturday evening at Cusack Park in Ennis at 5.45pm was a fantastic place to be for a Galway football supporter.

Gerry Fahy's side had just beaten a highly-rated Kerry outfit by 2-14 to 2-10 to advance to the All Ireland final. The margin of victory could have been even greater for the Galway players, if they had been a bit more clinical at stages in the first half.

Thu, Apr 13, 2017

Sunday was a good day for Galway football. Not only did Kevin Walsh's charges fully deserve to win the division Two league title for 2017, beating Kildare by 0-18 to 0-16, but it was also the county's first senior football victory at Croke Park for far too long.

Galway win Connacht U21 crown

Thu, Apr 06, 2017

The Galway U21s, under the guidance of Gerry Fahy, had a sensational 3-20 to 2-14 win over Sligo after extra time at Markievicz Park on Sunday.

At one stage in the first half Galway found themselves behind by 1-7 to 0-2, and that kind of a poor start cannot be repeated when they face a very highly rated Kerry in the semi-final on Saturday week (April 15). The venue has yet to be decided, but will probably be Limerick. Dublin will face the Ulster champions in the other semi-final.

Footballers need at least a point to secure promotion

Thu, Mar 30, 2017

After Galway's solid 3-15 to 1-13 victory over Down at Páirc Esler in round six of the league, manager Kevin Walsh said Galway had been in division two for the past six or seven years because they had not been good enough, or consistent enough, to play in the top flight.

It was that simple. League tables do not lie, and while a team may be unlucky one season or another, Galway's lack of consistency in league football over the past four or five years is the reason they have not gone up the elevator to division one.
