Supermac’s and Galway GAA To Maintain Long Running Relationship

One of the longest running sponsorship relationships in Irish sport is set to continue with the announcement today (Tuesday, November 29th) that
Supermac’s and Galway GAA have agreed a 5 year deal. Supermac’s has been sponsoring Galway for over 32 years having started
sponsoring Galway hurling in 1991 and subsequently both Galway football and hurling. The deal means that Supermac’s
will sponsor all Galway Adult and Youth Intercounty teams in Football and Hurling until 2027.
Supermac’s also supports hundreds of local GAA clubs and school teams throughout the country.

Pat McDonagh, Managing Director of Supermac’s, said that “Both myself an Una are delighted to be continuing one of the
longest running sponsorship relationships in the country,” he said. “The sponsorship of the county teams is an important part of our
relationship with the GAA and the fact that we sponsor hundreds of clubs, schools and teams throughout the country is equally
as important to us. We are over 40 years in business and in the 32 years that we have been sponsoring
Galway we have always maintained a strong relationship with clubs and schools in the communities in which we are based.
We would like to wish all the teams the very best of luck during the upcoming campaigns,” Mr. McDonagh concluded.

Galway County Board Chairperson, Paul Bellew said “Galway GAA are delighted to extend our partnership with Supermac’s for another
five years. Pat and Una McDonagh have been fantastic supporters and promoters of the GAA in Galway and indeed
nationally for over 30 years now and we thank them for their continued support. This new agreement represents a significant
investment over the next five years and is a strong endorsement of our six flagship teams across hurling and football.
We look forward to working closely with Pat, Una and the team at Supermac’s over the next five years.”

Brooks Galway Senior Hurling Championship Final

Loughrea 0-20 St Thomas' 1-17

By Billy Coss at Pearse Stadium

A Tiernan Killeen point deep in added time secured a draw for Loughrea at the end of a thrilling Galway Senior Hurling Championship final with five in-a-row chasing St. Thomas'.

Kenneth Burke's side looked to have timed their run to perfection when Éanna Burke, scorer of 1-4, took a Conor Cooney pass and gave the reigning champions their first lead of the contest after 63 minutes.

Loughrea lost forward Darren Shaughnessy to a second yellow card inside the final quarter, but showed admirable composure to work the levelling score with the game's final play - Paul Hoban, 'keeper Gearóid Loughnane, Brian Keary and Neil Keary all involved before Killeen hit the target.

Loughrea have been a model of consistency this season, winning the Division 1 title and reaching the final with the competition's only unbeaten record. Chasing their third title, Tommy Kelly's side made a dream start when Martin McManus, the competition's top marksman from play, struck three points inside two minutes of the throw-in.

With Neil Keary deadly accurate from placed balls and Oisín Coyle and Ian Hanrahan also finding the range, they raced into a 0-6 to 0-1 lead. Slowly but surely, Thomas' worked their way back into matters with two Darragh Burke points having a settling effect along with some terrific Conor Cooney free-taking from distance.

Though Thomas' hit the final two scores of the half through Cooney and Oisín Flannery, Loughrea's 0-12 to 0-10 interval advantage was well deserved after playing with the wind.

That margin was cut to one after the restart, but it was a buffer Loughrea maintained and indeed extended to lead by 0-18 to 0-14 after 52 minutes thanks to a run of scores from captain Ian Hanrahan, McManus, Neil Keary and Joe Mooney.

St. Thomas' were in deep trouble despite having an extra man advantage, but their challenge sparked to life in the closing stages. Damien McGlynn broke free, drew the cover and teed up Éanna Burke to crack home the day's only goal on 53 minutes. Burke would then follow up with the equalising point two minutes later.

In what was a pulsating finale, Jamie Ryan pushed Loughrea within sight of the Tom Callanan Cup once more only for Conor Cooney's eighth converted free to level and a further Éanna Burke point to tilt the balance back in St. Thomas' favour.

There would be a final twist in the tale as Loughrea worked a last gasp scoring opportunity and Killeen held his nerve to ensure the neighbouring clubs must return to Pearse Stadium to do it all again next Sunday.

Scorers for Loughrea: Neil Keary 0-9 (8f), Martin McManus 0-4, Ian Hanrahan 0-2, Oisín Coyle 0-1, Dylan Shaughnessy 0-1, Joe Mooney 0-1, Jamie Ryan 0-1, Tiernan Killeen 0-1.

AIB Connacht Club SFC Semi-Final

MAIGH CUILINN 2-8 STROKESTOWN 0-7 after extra time

Kevin Egan at Tuam Stadium

Galway and Roscommon champions Maigh Cuilinn and Strokestown are relatively unfamiliar faces in provincial club championship competition, but the two clubs came together this afternoon in Tuam Stadium to produce a contest that was laden with intensity, physicality and all that's best about the AIB club championship series.

Extra-time goals from Seán Kelly and Ger Davoren settled the tie in favour of the Galway champions and heavy pre-match favourites, though for their part, Strokestown will be immensely proud of what was arguably their best performance of the year so far.

A blistering start for the newly-crowned Fahey Cup holders from East Roscommon saw them move 0-4 to no score in front after eight minutes, with Diarmuid McGann and Shane McGinley each popping over two points from dead balls. 18-year-old McGinley, who made light of the heavy ground and cold air to pop over his two scores from the 45 metre line, was incredibly lively as the lone full-time occupant of the full forward line while at midfield and half-back, Strokestown’s tackling and physicality really discommoded Don Connellan’s Galway title holders.

However the game changed completely when David Butler was black carded. By the time Butler returned the field, Maigh Cuilinn were back on level terms, with momentum on their side, after scores from Dessie Conneely and Owen Gallagher tied up the contest.

That became 0-6 to 0-5 at half-time following another point from each of those two men, Gallagher's booming strike from the right wing a real highlight, but no-one could have imagined that with 26 minutes gone in the second half, no further flags would have been raised.

In terms of possession, Maigh Cuilinn took control, in no small part because of the introduction of Peter Cooke off the bench. However while the former Galway county man got his hands on a lot of primary possession, his finishing was not what he would have wanted and he accounted for five of his team's wides, and so it wasn't until the 57th minute that he made what appeared to be a decisive contribution, winning a free which Dessie Conneely point.

However in the closing minutes, Strokestown midfielder Cathal Compton came up trumps with two huge plays to force extra-time – first making a wonderful high catch to set up a score for Diarmuid McGann, then firing the ball over from the right wing in the fourth minute of stoppage time to leave it 0-7 to 0-7 at the end.

Paul Kelly punched a point to move Maigh Cuilinn into the lead early in extra time, but goal conceded proved fatal to Strokestown’s chances.

A quick free from Peter Cooke to Seán Kelly left the Galway county star clean through on goal, and while Niall Curley did brilliantly to save the first effort, the rebound fell back to Kelly, who picked out the bottom corner at the second attempt.

A red card for Keith Murphy at half-time in extra time left Strokestown with a mountain to climb and while they tried to test the Maigh Cuilinn full back line with a few long, high deliveries into Cathal Compton, the defence held firm and Maigh Cuilinn were able to break clear and clinch their win through a late Ger Davoren tap in goal, setting up a novel provincial final against Tourlestrane in a fortnight.

Scorers for Maigh Cuilinn: Dessie Conneely 0-4 (0-3f), Owen Gallagher 0-3, Seán Kelly 1-0, Ger Davoren 1-0, Paul Kelly 0-1.

Scorers for Strokestown: Diarmuid McGann 0-4 (0-3f), Shane McGinley 0-2 (0-1f, 0-1 45), Cathal Compton 0-1.
