  • Galway's under 21 hurlers will make a small piece of history this evening when they play their first ever game in the Bord Gáis Energy Leinster under 21 Hurling Championship.

    The likes of Sean Loftus and Brian Concannon - both of whom have senior experience - start against Offaly at Bord na Móna O'Connor Park tonight. It will be Galway's first foray into the Leinster under 21 championship following a ruling at Congress in 2017. Interestingly though, it is not the first provincial campaign for the county having participated in the Munster championship from the inception of the under 21 competition in 1964 until they left the province in 1969. In fact Galway and Kerry played the inaugural fixture in the Munster campaign in 1964. They played two Munster finals in their sojourn in the province, in 1965 & 1967.  

    Tonight's other quarter final sees Westmeath take on Dublin in Mullingar. Both games have 7.30 throw-ins.

    Kilkenny now face a short turnaround for their All Ireland quarter final against Limerick at the weekend.

    The Galway boss says the Cats can't be written off.


  • Galway have named an unchanged side for tomorrow's All-Ireland Hurling Championship semi-final replay with Clare.

    It means Joe Canning has recovered from a knee injury he suffered in last weeks game and starts among the tribesmen attack.

    Gearoid McInerney is also fit to play and takes his place at centre-back.

    Clare will name their starting 15 tomorrow.


  • Galway and Kilkenny will meet again next Sunday in a replay of the Leinster Senior Hurling final, after yesterday's match finished 18 points apiece.

    Semple Stadium in Thurles is the venue for the replay, which will throw-in at 3pm on Sunday.

    Croke Park is unavailable for the decider, as Michael Buble is playing a concert at the GAAA headquarters on Sat evening.



  • Gearóid McInerney looks set to lose his battle to be fit for Galway's All Ireland semi- final replay with Clare on Sunday.

    The half-back has had a scan on a suspected torn calf, and could miss the All Ireland final next month if Galway see off the Banner at the second attempt.

    The news on Joe Canning appears to be more positive, with the hurler of the year not suffering any serious damage to his knee despite his withdrawal from the first game.

    That replay throws in at 2 o'clock on Sunday in Semple Stadium, with Tipperary's Fergal Horgan appointed referee.



  • James Owens has been named as the referee for this Sunday's Leinster Senior Hurling Final replay between Kilkenny and Galway.

  • This keenly contested Mayo GAA secondary schools Junior Final produced some magnificent hurling with both teams giving their all at the splendid Ballyvary sports grounds.  Rice College started the better and with Aaron Ketterick and Tommy Scahill driving over early points the boys from the shores of Clew Bay took an early lead.  Scahill was brilliant from start to finish and his strength, skill and determination in front of goal caused all sorts of problems for the Ballyhaunis defence.  After ten minutes Scahill pounced again to riffle a pile-driver into Fiachra Glavey’s net after great work from corner forward Finn McKeown.  McKeown worked his socks off all afternoon and created chance after chance for the other five forwards.  Jack Deegan rallied Ballyhaunis Community School after sixteen minutes with a great solo effort but three consecutive wides proved costly when the East Mayo side were on top.  Four minutes later the deadly accurate inside forward line of Rice College delivered again.  Finn McKeown drove his effort across the goal and Scahill reacted first to raise his second green flag of the afternoon.  This time his lightning strike send Glavey the wrong way in the Ballyhaunis goal.  Two great points from Conal Hession and Diarmuid Philips kept Ballyhaunis Community School in touch before the break but a massive free from centre forward Cian Mulchrone from fifty yards out left the Westport lads 2-05 to 0-3 in front at the short whistle.

    Goals win matches and inside one minute of the restart Rice College had landed two more.  Tommy Scahill was unstoppable in front of goal and after thirty seconds he jinked around the full back to put more day light between the sides.  Man-of-the-match Scahill was out in front again a minute later after a brilliant defence splitting pass from Kevin Gannon and the sharpshooter nailed the sliothar to the bottom right corner of the net for his fourth goal of the afternoon.  It was an uphill struggle for an understrength Ballyhaunis Community School after that but to their credit they never gave up.  A goal from Ballyhaunis midfielder Declan Henry after ten minutes of the second half narrowed the gap after a great run down the right wing from James Doyle.  Scahill however stole-the-show and two further points from his stick pushed Rice College 4-09 to 1-03 in front and fifteen minutes still to play.  In the final quarter Ballyhaunis Community School rallied once again and hit 1-04 in the closing stages without reply.  Diarmuid Philips batted in a good goal from close range to reel the Westport school in and points from Conal Hession (3) and Jack Doyle kept them in the chase.  Wing back Rossa Horgan drove forward in the final seconds to steady the ship for Rice College and he hit the final score of the game from twenty five metres out to leave it Rice College Westport 4-11 Ballyhaunis Community School 2-07 at the finish.
