Galway and Wexford through to Dioralyte Walsh Cup Final

Wexford and Galway will contest the 2024 Walsh Cup Final after respective semi-final victories over Kilkenny and Dublin on Saturday afternoon.

Evan Niland was the main man for Galway as they defeated Dublin comfortably enough in Parnell Park. He struck 17 points, five of them from play, in what was a tour de force of beautiful ball striking.

A Jason Flynn goal helped Galway into a 1-11 to 0-7 half-time lead, and even at that stage you couldn’t see a way back for Dublin because they posed no real goal threat in attack.

They did have a brief period of dominance at the start of the second-half, but Niland’s unerring accuracy meant Galway were always able to stay out of arm’s reach.
