Galway senior camogie captain Sarah Dervan talked to us after Galway’s 3-11 to 0-11 victory over Offaly in the Littlewoods Camogie League in Pearse Stadium.
The win gives the Tribeswomen their second win from three games and sets up a winner-takes-all clash with Wexford in seven days.

Sarah chatted to us about today’s game, Wexford next week and being made Galway captain.
“It was a miserable oul day,” said Dervan after the Offaly game. “But we got the job done really and truly. I don’t think it was an overall great team performance. But look, a win is a win. And we have to work hard for the next week because Wexford is going to be a completely story.
“Only for the likes of Niamh Hanniffy, she was on fire up there. She got two goals and Ailish (O’Reilly) got another. They kept us safe in the second half. It really fizzled out towards the end of the second half.
“It’s great to get the win. And we’re a tough journey for Wexford next weekend, down below in Wexford. But we’ll get the recovery in now and hopefully drive on for next week.
“Effectively a quarter-final (against Wexford). I think Wexford shoved it up to Cork in the league. So, we know we have a lot of work to do. But hopefully, we’re preparing to do that next week and work.”
