GALWAY UNITED (Reaction): “I was pleased to get the start” – CONOR BARRY 


Conor Barry’s first half brace sent Galway United on their way to three points against Cobh Ramblers in the SSE Airtricity League First Division last Friday night (27th April) in Eamonn Deacy Park. 

His two goals coupled with Alan Murphy’s record equalling 75th league goal gave the Tribesmen a 3-0 victory and moved them up to fourth place in the league table.

“After Shelbourne, we had a chat,” said Barry to Galway United’s official website.  “We needed to bounce back and we knew that. We knew that we didn’t play particularly well against Shelbourne, so it was great to get the three goals in the first half and basically kill off the game against Cobh.

“It’s obviously not nice when you’re out of the team, but you do your job and you do what you have to do when you come on. I was pleased to get the start tonight and the two goals also. Hopefully I’ve given the manager a bit of a selection headache going into next week against Athlone Town.

“Alan (Murphy) was going for the club’s all-time record goal scorer.  He won’t get a better chance and it was a bit more special scoring it in front of our own fans. I was delighted to get the three points, the two goals and for Murph to break the record.

Galway United face two away trips over the next seven days in the SSE Airtricity League First Division.  they travel to Lissywollen on Friday, 4th May to take on Athlone Town at 7.45pm.  And on Monday, 7th May, they make the trek to Finn Park to face Finn Harps at 5pm.
