Talty: My loyalty is to Galway!


Brian Talty's loyalties are not with Dublin Sunday but his native county ahead of the Allianz National League Division One decider.

The former has been living in Dublin for the guts of four decades. Talty, who was born in County Clare, has managed Dublin club Parnells.

That said, he has never forgotten his roots, nor his playing days for Galway in midfield and Tuam Stars.

"I hope Galway are going to win," he told the Irish Daily Mirror. "They've done brilliantly in the league this year. To think at the start of the league, everybody would have thought Galway were going to be relegated.

"The big match for Galway is the 13th of May against Mayo to be honest with you, but this one is a big plus and hopefully they're going to come up and give a big performance. I suppose the whole country would love to see Galway win this game, but it's going to be a huge challenge for them. It's going to be a tough one to win."

Talty has long gotten over the disappointment of Galway's defeat to 12-man Dublin in the 1983 All-Ireland final.

"Myself and Kieran Duff (who was one of three Dublin players to be sent off) would be best friends now," he said.

"People are amazed when they see us out together. It's something that happened, it's an experience, it's done and dusted and once it's over, it's over and you can't go back. That's it."
