There was a real sense of razzmatazz and Broadway’s bright lights last Sunday in Tuam stadium for the official introduction of Joe Kernan to the Galway public.
Joe was led out like a show horse stallion between the two semi-finals last weekend and asked a few questions in a picture more readily associated with a big premiership signing rather than an inter-county appointment.
Speaking to him after the first game, he seemed extremely relaxed and eager to get going. As he said himself: “I am delighted to have today over and the formalities finished with and get down to work.
“ I am happiest on the training field and at match days and hopefully my time with Galway will be both productive and successful.
“I hope to have my backroom team in place in the next few weeks and then get down to the serious job in hand.”
