Galway ladies football manager Stephen Glennon knew his side’s first half performance proved their undoing in the All-Ireland senior ladies football semi-final on Saturday (25th August) as Dublin ran out 4-8 to 1-10 winners in Dr. Hyde Park.
Nicole Owens and Sinead Aherne (2) got first half majors as the reigning champions went 13 points clear before Lyndsey Davey ensured the result. Olivia Divilly got a consolation Galway major.
It was a disappointing finish to a year where Galway reached two semi-finals and beat Mayo twice. And many pundits fancied the Tribeswomen to possibly produced a shock.
Glennon acknowledged the “first half really killed” them when he spoke to Galway Daily after the final whistle.
