MANAGER'S QUOTE

“Galway are on a very good run and had a good result away to Drogheda last week. They will be dangerous opponents - we've beaten them twice already this season and like a wounded foe they will no doubt be out to prove a point .

We're on a decent run ourselves and we need to keep that momentum going.

This is a critical part of the season and we really need to maintain our form, especially our home form” – John Gill, Assistant Manager.
