Galway full-forward Niamh Hanniffy joined us for a chat after Galway’s 3-11 to 0-11 victory over Offaly in Pearse Stadium on Sunday in the Littlewoods National Camogie League.
The Oranmore/Maree attacker scored 2-1 in the first half and set up Ailish O’Reilly for the third major as the Tribeswomen built up an insurmontable advantage to get their second win of 2018.

Afterwards, Niamh chatted about the game, the Ashbourne Cup and getting plenty of games.
“That’s what we were looking for today,” said Hanniffy after the final whistle. “Another win under the belt. And we’ll just keep moving forward now with the league and keep building on it.”
“I guess we’re just clicking all over. The ball put into me today was perfect today. I’d no excuses. But there’s plenty of room for improvement and I’ll keep improving my own performance and hopefully Galway will keep pushing on as well.”

“It’s great to build the confidence especially this time of year. Each game is another game you have to your name. But just keep doing the simple things right and keep making the rights strides. Come championship then, hopefully I’ll be able to make another mark on it. With college camogie as well, we’re flat out. And it’s good to be getting games at this time of the year.”
“We’re flat out there in UL (University of Limerick). We’re playing UCC on Wednesday (Ashbourne Cup Final). It’s all go but at this time of year, you want to playing matches. And you’ll keep your fitness up and you don’t want to do the hard slog at training. If you can be doing it during games and improving your skill and all your fitness as well, that’s what you’re looking for. So, we’ll take it as it comes.”
