Galway supporters at the 1966 final

image preview

In 1966 Galway were fortunate to get out of Connacht by beating Mayo. To an extent they were also lucky in a hard fought semi-final against Cork. They eventually won what was regarded as the best game of football seen in years, by a score of 1-11 to 1-9. And so they were into their fourth All-Ireland final in a row and going for three wins in a row and the question was, would this team reverse the three losses in a row that Galway suffered at the hands of Kerry 1940, Kerry 1941, and Dublin in 1942? Meath still stood between them and Sam.

A well fought battle between the two provinces took place last Saturday in the Sportsground, when Munster came away with the 22-0 victory. Connacht started out by conceding a penalty in the first four minutes in the game, with Niamh Briggs putting three points on the board for Munster. Within 10 minutes of this score, they also managed to score in the corner, with some poor defence by Connacht. The Connacht side managed to keep the score line of 8-0 up to half time with some great defence work by Clare Molloy, Carol Staunton, Clare Raferty and Allison Miller. Connacht were unlucky not to score a try before half time with severe pressure put on Munster’s defense.
