Not the only time we best Galls during that time MR2!
I recall lovely summer evening near the river Bann....


Gerard O’Boyle was unplayable that night.

Was that when we lost but because of the back door won the final?

Aye O’Boyle was quality, always had that spark that you didn’t know what he was going to do next

I recall setting up a meeting with GOB and the one off that was Eddie Quinn, at the Elk, on behalf of Mickey Culbert who was senior manager at the time. Both were in his wish list to join the panel which was already up and running. Both dutifully turned up, heard Mickey's pitch, and committed to turning up at the following nights training session. A good night work...we thought!

Of course neither turned up ..lol.

A great St Galls side in that era, but you should also be grateful for the Cargin side at that time. Only for them St Galls would have won 16 titles in a row between 2001 and 2016. No one else laid a glove on them really, St Galls never had any problem getting motivated for the Cargin games which was another sign of what a great team they were.

A great cargin side too. You do wonder how they compare to their current team. You wonder will we ever see the likes of that galls team again.

Eddie Quinn was a good one. Both them boys did play county at one point though not as much as we would have liked but doesn’t always happen.

It comes in cycle’s for us early 80’s we won Ulster and appeared in Ulster final following year to be beaten by a great Burren club late 80’s the odd 90’s appearances in county finals to that team…

The tradition is there so it’ll come back, might never win an All Ireland again but sure not many do

Aghagallon only 1 point ahead of Tir na nog now, and gorts have eventually found some form, a real battle to survive in Div1 and St Brids would need a result as well just to stay safe.

We have had a ridiculous amount of injuries and men away. Hopefully get enough boys back in the next few weeks to keep us up. We have had the chance to play plenty of young lads though so hopefully that’ll stand to them.
