Padraic Interview

A MESSAGE FROM PADRAIC JOYCE, GALWAY SENIOR FOOTBALL MANAGER 

– FEBRUARY

It’s hard to believe we’re already at the halfway point in this year’s Allianz League.

As expected, it’s seriously competitive with little or nothing between the teams. Every point secured is incredibly valuable. A victory now can leave you in a great position to get to a league final, a defeat can suddenly leave you near the bottom and fighting relegation. We have big games coming up shortly and again in March.

Our trip to Tralee to play Kerry ended in huge disappointment. It’s a game we should have won against one of the top sides in the country. With little time between games we picked ourselves up quickly and beat Donegal a week later. It was a massive two points for us in Letterkenny coming from seven points down to beat tough opposition. Once again, we had great Galway support at both games which is always hugely appreciated. It leaves us joint top of the table with Dublin and Tyrone after three games.

In closing, I’d like to express my deepest sympathies to the Byrne family in Tuam.   Mickey Byrne played a big part in Galway football over the years and was hugely admired by everybody in the GAA community. He got us to the All-Ireland Minor Football Final in 1994 and the semi-final a year later. He will be sadly missed. I’d also like to remember Tadhg Meehan who passed away in the last few days. He was a great GAA man and made many a trip across the water to see his nephews and Galway play football.

Next stop is Tuam and our meeting with Tyrone this Sunday where a huge crowd is expected for our only Allianz League game there this season.  As always it won’t be easy but I’m hugely looking forward to it and seeing you all there.

Padraic.

Bhí an-ócáid againn le déanaí ag Babhta Ceannais Scór na n-Óg san INEC i gCill Áirne, Co. Chiarraí. Bhí na sluaite daoine óga ó cheann ceann na tíre ag iomaíocht in aghaidh a chéile.
Rinne Uachtarán Chumann Luthchleas Gael, Seán Ó hÓráin, comhghairdeas le gach duine a ghlac páirt agus labhair sé faoi thábhacht Scór i gCumann Lúthchleas Gael. Dúirt se freisin go raibh sárlá siamsaíochta ann.
Bhí iontrála againn sna comórtaisí éagsúla Tráth na gCeist, Amhránaíocht Aonair, Bailéad Ghrúpa agus Rince Seit freisin. Bhaineadar uilig taitneamh 's sásamh as an lá agus beidh na daoine óga ar ais arís níos láidre an bhliain seo chugainn le cúnamh Dé. Bhí ríméad orainn go léir nuair a bhronntar an corn ar rinceoirí Mhainistir Chnoc Muaidhe. Bhí atmaisféar corraitheach le mothú san amharclann agus bhí an bua chomh tuillte dóibh!

Is iad seo a leanas seaimpíní na hÉireann Rince Seit, Scór na nÓg 2020, Mainistir Chnoc Muaidhe. Ard-mholadh dóibh, tá an-éacht bainte amach acu is táim cinnte go bhfuilidís fós ag ceiliúradh agus cén fáth nach mbeadh?!

Ná déanaigí dearmad go mbeidh comórtas Scór Sinsir ar siúl ag deireadh na míosa seo 29ú Feabhra san óstán Raheen Woods, Baile Átha an Rí. Má tá suim agat páirt a ghlacadh ann ní gá ach dul i dteagmháil linn ar ár lth. nua 'Scór agus Imeachtaí CLG na Gaillimhe' ar líne ar Facebook.

Le gach dea-ghuí,
Coiste Scór na Gaillimhe 2020
