A sobering defeat to Dublin has Galway on the back foot facing into this weekend’s Allianz Football League round three fixture against Monaghan in Inniskeen on Sunday (2pm).
The Dubs drive for five is well and truly under way after they comprehensively defeated Tyrone in last Sunday's final to claim a record equalling fourth title in a row.
Travelling up the motorway on Saturday afternoon to Croke Park for the All-Ireland semi-final, we listened to Padraic Joyce (Galway), Dick Clerkin (Monaghan) and Liam Kearns (Tipperary manager) on Off the Ball on Newstalk to pass an hour of the journey, and all three pointed out that Galway would have to produce an exceptional performance to keep the Dubs at bay.
Reigning champions St. Lomans had to allow for extra reserves as they saw off the stern challenge provided by Athlone in Hogan Park, Moate on Sunday evening.

The Galway senior footballers under Kevin Walsh have thus far enjoyed a productive season.

Between the years 1947 and 1955 Rocky Marciano entered the squared circle 49 times and remained undefeated against all challengers. The reasons are many, including his relentless fighting style, punching power, stamina, and iron chin. However, at the end of his career, 49 pros had thrown everything they had at him, and he always found a way to survive. And win. Retiring with a perfect record 49-0 and an 88 per cent knockout rate, he stands as one of the undisputed greatest boxers of all time. Dublin footballers now stand on the cusp of such immortality with a possible three in a row of titles on the horizon.
