“After the cup defeat to Waterford our season is now focused on getting as far up the league table as we can.
It was a poor display on Tuesday night, very disappointing for all involved and I will be looking for a reaction to that.
Galway have enjoyed some good results against us in recent meetings and that's something we have to address. It's a big game for both clubs” – Jeff Kenna
