It’s that day of the week again when the local papers start coming in the door and their is sections here and there about our senior footballers. The Galway Independant are suggesting that Galway’s FBD league final place is all wrapped up at this stage. They state anything better than a nine-point defeat against GMIT on Sunday will be enough to see Galway through. Declan Rooney goes on to talk about how six and ten point wins in there opening games suggests that Galway will be taking it easy on Sunday but the writer respect that the students will be no pushovers.
GMIT are coming out of two draw from their opening two games in the league which leaves them second in group B of the FBD league, they where unlucky however to be cut short against Sligo in the last round of games after a last-minute goal seen the ”Dublin road students” settle for a draw.
The paper continues with a report on Galway’s win in Ballinamore. The reporter goes on to talk about how Nicky Joyce was the difference after scoring 1-6 on Sunday. A report on Leitir Mor disappointing All Ireland semi final defeat also makes an appearance, saying that “John Gilmore’s (Cookstown) goal with minutes remaining put the final nail on Naomh Anna’s coffin”. Also another report which may interest some, is of the St.Jarlaths senior football team who were defeated in their league final against St.Muredachs.
