Dublin v Galway, Saturday, 7pm GAA

Dublin and Galway come face to face this weekend in a repeat of the 2018 league final in which Dublin were victorious. Dublin last weekend travelled to Clones to play Malachy O’Rourke’s Monaghan and they lost by 2-13 to 1-13 in the end. The performance wasn’t typical of a Dublin side we all have come accustomed to but we have to say they are probably not long back training considering they were on team holidays and are only getting used to the new rules in place as well. Galway last weekend beat Cavan narrowly in their opening game at Pearse Stadium. It’s always difficult taking on Dublin but especially after suffering a defeat Kevin Walsh’s men will be expecting a serious backlash. This game is live on tv in Bar Solo Saturday evening at 7pm
