GAA Chief says Galway situation “needs to addressed”

first_imgDirector General of the GAA Padraic Duffy says that the Liam Mellows motion to Galway County Convention which proposes a move to Munster in 2018 if the county’s Minor and U21 hurling teams are not admitted into Leinster is a “statement of dissatisfaction” and needs to be addressed at a national level by Croke Park. Galway have upped the ante with Leinster in recent weeks as the county’s frustration grows at not being given any home games in their provincial Hurling Championship and the continuing refusal to allow all other Galway teams participate. If the Liam Mellows motion is successful on Dec 12th at the Galway Convention, then it will be on the agenda at the 2017 GAA Congress in February. Padraic Duffy spoke last night to Lisa Lawlor about the current Galway situation… Audio Playerhttps://s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/sports.podcast/Padraic+Duffy+on+Liam+Mellows+Motion.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume..print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more

ADAM ROONEY SIGNS NEW GALWAY UNITED CONTRACT

first_imgprint WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email Galway United are delighted to announce that Adam Rooney has committed his future to the club by signing a new contract for the 2019 SSE Airtricity League season.The 6’4″ centre-back made his first team breakthrough at Eamonn Deacy Park in 2018.Eighteen-year-old Rooney enjoyed an impressive first season with the club’s under-17 team in 2017 before progressing to under-19 level in 2018.Rooney made his first team debut for United against Sligo Rovers in the EA SPORTS Cup in April.Alan Murphy handed the young defender a further five league starts following his appointment as manager in July and Rooney also enjoyed an excellent season at International Schools level, where he helped Ireland to victory in the Centenary Shield.United manager Alan Murphy told www.galwayunitedfc.ie: “You need only look at Adam and he just shouts potential. I’m very excited by the work we can do with Adam next year.“I feel the coming season is going to be a real breakthrough year for Adam. The way his football and philosophy goes, along with the way he plays the game.“Adam has many different abilities, he can be a tough-tackling centre-half, he can be a ball-playing centre-half and he’s very mobile. That’s just Adam Rooney in 2018, what will he be like in 2020?”2018 was an important year for Rooney’s development with the commanding centre-back making his first team bow and winning the Centenary Shield with Ireland, and Alan Murphy hopes he can continue to progress at Eamonn Deacy Park.“You just need to look at past Galway United players in Irish Schools teams. I’d go straight to Ryan Manning and look at the jump he made straight after being named Irish Schools Player of the Year.“That’s exactly what Adam can do and I think he’s only working at half pace with regard to his development. He has huge potential and ability.“It’s a big, big year for him in terms of nailing down a spot in the first team, really pushing on and becoming a leader at a young age.”last_img read more
