Galway boss Walsh: ‘We were exceptional today!’

Galway manager, Kevin Walsh, felt his side more than redeemed themselves last Sunday as they swept Roscommon aside to claim the JJ Nestor Cup in Castlebar.

  Walsh said: “We didn’t push on when we had the chance last week and if you want to become a serious team you have to press home your advantage when you have it and we did that today. We were exceptional today, in fairness.

  “We took a lot of positives out of last week. It might have been a hard game to watch but we did a lot of good things in the game and we built on that today. We were expecting a tough game and we knew once the draw was made that we would have to take out two Division One teams to win a Connacht title, and we have done that, so it’s very satisfying. The standard of the Connacht Championship was very high this year and it is a great achievement to win it and we must kick on now.”
