Allianz Hurling League Division 1 Group A


By Cian O'Connell at Pearse Stadium

Nothing is decided or defined in January, but Galway were fairly content to glean the spoils with the minimum of fuss in Salthill.

Shane O’Neill’s first competitive match in charge yielded a comprehensive victory with a string of experiments also carried out against a willing Westmeath outfit.

The visitors’ were gritty throughout, but a Galway burst which featured 1-5 without reply in the opening period was when the chief damage occurred.

Moments later Westmeath’s Aonghus Clarke was red carded with Galway five clear, but from then until the finish the only issue needed to be determined was the eventual winning margin.

Having edged 0-3 to 0-2 ahead Westmeath started in solid fashion, but then Galway, with Joe Canning and Cathal Mannion prominent, seized the initiative.

The goal arrived in the 17th minute as Padraic Mannion’s inviting pass was gathered by Conor Whelan, who unleashed a blistering effort from an acute angle.

Westmeath’s cause was scarcely aided by Clarke’s dismissal with Galway’s 1-12 from 18 attempts sufficient compared to the visitors’ 0-8 from 13 shots.

When the action recommenced Galway continued to set the agenda despite Westmeath’s spirited display.

In the third quarter Galway spurned a string of goal opportunities, but still outscored the underdogs by 0-4 to 0-1

Tadhg Haran was productive for Galway with his fourth point of the afternoon steering O’Neill’s charges into a commanding 1-17 to 0-9 advantage in the 54th minute.

The Liam Mellows clubman was in splendid form for Galway concluding the game with six from play as they cruised to an emphatic success.

Next Sunday’s trip to the LIT Gaelic Grounds to face Limerick will be a much more revealing affair.

Scorers for Galway: Joe Canning 0-12 (9fs, 165), Tadhg Haran 0-6, Conor Whelan 1-0, Cathal Mannion 0-3, Sean Linnane, Sean Bleahene, Thomas Monaghan 0-1 each.

Scorers for Westmeath: Killian Doyle 0-7 (7fs), Darragh Clinton 0-2 (1f), Cormac Boyle 0-1.

GALWAY: Eanna Murphy; Darren Morrissey, Gearoid McInerney, TJ Brennan; Johnny Coen, Padraic Mannion, Adrian Tuohey; Sean Linnane, Tadhg Haran; Diarmuid Kilcommins, Joe Canning, Cathal Mannion; Jason Flynn, Conor Whelan, Ja Mannion.

Subs: Aidan Harte for Coen (HT), Sean Bleahene for Mannion (43), Thomas Monaghan for Flynn (57), Jack Grealish for Linnane (57), Paul Killeen for Morrissey (68).

WESTMEATH: Aaron McHugh; Adam Ennis, Tommy Doyle, Johnny Bermingham; Shane Clavin, Aonghus Clarke, Aaron Craig; Cormac Boyle, Liam Varley; Killian Doyle, Joey Boyle, Robbie Greville; Darragh Clinton, Eoin Price, Niall Mitchell.

Subs: Brendan Doyle for Bermingham (19), John Gilligan for Varley (HT), Ciaran Doyle for K Doyle (42), Alan Cox for Greville (52), Jack Galvin for Price (62).

Allianz Football League Division One


By Cian O'Connell at Pearse Stadium

Ultimately a lively and gripping game brought the feel good factor Galway supporters craved.

Stylish initially when demonstrating plenty of skill, it was substance that got Galway the spoils in the end. Monaghan, who trailed by five early in the second half, came roaring back to level, but Galway stayed the distance.

So when referee Maurice Deegan’s final whistle came Galway selector John Concannon embraced new manager Padraic Joyce. It was that sort of morale boosting win with two points pocketed and an important little statement made.

The opening period illustrated Galway’s efficiency and willingness to adopt a direct kicking style throughout.

While Monaghan did frustrate Galway at stages the statistics confirmed that the locals were slick enough in attack.

From 12 first half shots Galway posted 1-8 compared to Monaghan’s 0-8 from 16 attempts so the maroon and white team were content at the interval.

Level at 0-4 each in the 15th minute, Galway then pounced for a goal when Gary O’Donnell, Shane Walsh, and Michael Boyle all combined before releasing the promising Robert Finnerty.

The Salthill-Knocknacarra forward showed a flash of class selling a dummy prior to scoring a goal as if playing in his back garden 200 yards down the road.

Monaghan did respond to the concession with Kieran Hughes and Conor McCarthy drilling points, but Galway remained positive.

Shane Walsh (two) and Adrian Varley struck three points in brisk succession which ensured the home crowd were gaining in belief.

A scare was survived in the 31st minute, though, as following a foul on Dessie Ward, Conor McManus’ penalty extracted a smart save from Connor Gleeson.

Rory Beggan did nail a long range free, but just before the break Gary O’Donnell raided forward to nail a score guiding Galway 1-8 to 0-8 in front at the turnaround.

After the restart Galway pushed the advantage out to five at 1-11 to 0-9 by the 43rd minute, but Monaghan summoned a gutsy reply.

Conor McManus, delightful in attack, spearheaded the revival with Jack McCarron and substitutes Christopher McGuinness and Aaron Mulligan notching scores.

Suddenly with 11 minutes remaining parity had been restored. Were doubts creeping into Galway minds? Walsh and McManus traded frees.

With five left on the clock the issue was delicately poised. Damien Comer calmly fisted a point and then crafted just enough space for another replacement Matthias O Baireid to edge Galway two ahead again.

McManus landed an exquisite free from an awkward angle to leave the minimum between the teams. Galway, though, stayed cool and the locals skipped away from Salthill satisfied.

Scorers for Galway: Shane Walsh 0-6 (5fs), Rob Finnerty 1-1, Gary O’Donnell, Cein D’Arcy, Paul Conroy, Matthias O Baireid, Damien Comer, Finian O Laoi, and Adrian Varley (m) 0-1 each.

Scorers for Monaghan: Conor McManus 0-6 (2fs, 1m), Kieran Hughes and Jack McCarron (1f) 0-2 each, Aaron Mulligan, Christopher McGuinness, Ryan McAnespie, Kieran Duffy, Conor McCarthy, and Rory Beggan (f) 0-1 each.

GALWAY: Connor Gleeson; Johnny Heaney, Sean Mulkerrin, Johnny Duane; Gary O’Donnell, John Daly, Cillian McDaid; Paul Conroy, Cein D’Arcy; Michael Boyle, Finian O Laoi, Michael Daly; Rob Finnerty, Shane Walsh, Adrian Varley.

Subs: Damien Comer for Boyle (33), Eamonn Brannigan for O Laoi (49), Matthias O Baireid for Conroy (60), Liam Costello for Varley (60), Sean Kelly for M Daly (67).

MONAGHAN: Rory Beggan; Ryan Wylie, Kieran Duffy, Conor Boyle; Dessie Ward, Karl O’Connell, Michael Bannigan; Niall Kearns, Darren Hughes; Ryan McAnespie, Jack McCarron, Dermot Malone; Conor McCarthy, Kieran Hughes, Conor McManus.

Subs: Aaron Mulligan for Bannigan (46), Christopher McGuinness for Malone (56), Shane Carey for McCarthy (59), Andrew Woods for McCarron (70).
