Galway end 53-year victory drought against Kerry


Galway earned their first Championship win over Kerry in 53 years with a 1-13 1-10 success at Croke Park but had Paul Conroy stretchered off with a double broken leg in the first half.

In heavy drizzle that contributed to an error-ridden contest, Galway pushed on from a 06-05 lead at the interval and with Shane Walsh outstanding with five points, pressed home their advantage with a Patrick Sweeney goal.

Kingdom had wing back Killian Young sent-off late on for a striking offence but they did ensure a nervy finish when David Clifford countered with a goal after a low fisted pass from Paul Geaney.

Galway manager Sean Walsh admitted the afternoon was bitter-sweet with Conroy set for a lengthy period on the sidelines after his accidental collision with Kerry's Sean O'Shea saw him whisked to hospital by ambulance.

He told RTE Sport: ""Paul is a massive warrior for us. He's tough and I'm hoping that news isn't as you say, but if it is, we'll look after him.

"Our thoughts are with him because he puts everything into it."

In the other Super 8s, Monaghan beat Kildare 0-15 1-10 to record their first quarter-final success after losing their previous five.
