Progress has been made by the Galway footballers over the past few months, and their performances have improved since the league, but based on their 1-20 to 2-10 defeat to Kerry last Sunday in Dublin, the road ahead is still long and winding.
The Galway senior footballers will head to Croke Park this weekend for their All-Ireland quarter-final clash with Kerry (2pm) knowing that they will have to considerably increase their intensity and work-rate all over the field if they are going to stop Kerry playing the free-flowing football that ripped Cork to shreds in the Munster final.
Galway came to town and they huffed and and puffed but in the end they were no match for a Mayo team that went about dismantling their southern neighbors with relative ease in the end with man of the match Cillian O'Connor kicking eight points and having his hand in two of Mayo's goals that booked their passage to the All Ireland quarter-final on the August Bank Holiday weekend. Mayo were smarter in almost every area of the field and ran out deserving seven point winners with Aidan O'Shea dominating the game from his centre half forward berth for long periods of the contest. Even when Galway looked like they could get themselves back into the contest the rub of the green wasn't with them as Shane Walsh who kicked seven points for the Tribesmen saw his effort for a goal come crashing back off the bar just after the restart.
