Looking at the happy crowds in Galway for this year’s Galway Arts Festival, I can appreciate that the sense of joy and surprise is heightened because it is shared on a huge scale. The crowd itself is a key part of the attraction. People lose their inhibitions among the horde.
Two goals down within 10 minutes, individual mistakes, a missed penalty and the 50/50 calls seemingly going the opposition's way ensured Galway lost by three points in the end, 1-13 to 2-13.
The Mayo footballing weekend gets under way this evening in the the old house of pain for many of the counties sides - Tuam Stadium. The old ground is getting a lick of paint and some refurbishment works at the minute and it has been the scene of many a painful defeat for Mayo teams down through the years, but for this year's crop of Mayo minors that will have little effect on them as they take their next formative steps as inter-county footballers.
Galway will hope to continue their recent dominance over Mayo at all levels when they face each other in McHale Park this Sunday afternoon at 4pm.
A disastrous second half from Galway in line with a spirited Roscommon fightback sends Galway to the qualifiers once again. Five unanswered points at the end of the first half had Galway leading 0-10 to 0-5 at the break. Quite similar to Roscommon’s position half way through last year's final and just like last year the home side lost out to a hungrier dog on the day.
The Galway Tribesmen Rugby League team earned a hard fought victory against the Dublin City Exiles last Saturday at South Park, The Claddagh. The match was billed as a tough, thrilling, encounter and it did not disappoint.
On Sunday June 16 at 4pm Galway will for the fourth year in-a-row face Roscommon in the Connacht final.
After a difficult first-half for the away side, Galway began to open up in the second half with two quick-fire goals that their dominance deserved. These goals, followed by a last-minute strike by debutant Martin Farragher, gave Galway a 13-point win over Sligo in Sunday's Connacht Senior Football Championship semi-final in Markievicz Park.
"Disappointed men and some tears" was the natural response in the immediate aftermath of Connacht's 21-13 loss to Ulster in this season's Guinness PRO14 quarter-final, but the club can reflect on more positives, none more so than achieving its primary aim of qualifying for Champions Cup rugby for only the second time on merit.
For thirty five minutes it was all going according to plan for Roscommon, who left Dr Hyde Park nursing plenty of regrets following Sunday’s 0-16 to 2-6 Connacht Final loss against Galway.
