No injury concerns for Galway


Galway manager Kevin Walsh expects to have a full squad to choose from for the Connacht SFC final against Roscommon on July 10.

Cathal Sweeney missed the semi-final win over Mayo because of a shoulder injury but he is likely to be fit for the provincial decider at Pearse Stadium.

"We are fairly good, nothing major there at the minute and hopefully over the next ten or 11 days things will stay the same," Walsh is quoted as saying in the Irish Sun.

Galway ended Mayo's five-year reign as Connacht champions with a 1-12 to 0-12 win at McHale Park earlier this month with the Tribesmen hitting 1-5 without reply in the final 20 minutes to set up a final meeting with Roscommon.

While the squad celebrated beating Mayo, Walsh insists he has not had any trouble getting the team to focus on the provincial decider.

"There is no denying in the aftermath that people were quite happy," Walsh added. "I said in the interview after that it is a long season. There was a big build-up to it.

"Obviously being the big underdogs, getting a result would be happy for anyone.

"The boys celebrated that evening, but got back directly the day after."
