More News Coming Out of Galway as Shane Walsh Pushes for a Move Out of the West

Posted by

The talented footballer from Kilkerrin/Clonberne in Galway wants out of the Western club and a switch across to Dublin super club Kilmacud Crokes. The 29 year old is living in Dublin and it’s hard to blame him to want to play his club football in the capital.

Kilkerrin’s chairman Ian Hynes said the club is “not going to let him go without a fight” after the 29-year-old informed the management team of his decision earlier this week.

“We tried to persuade him not to, but he said his mind was made up,” Hynes added.

“We’ve only 700 or 800 members in the club and it’s just rural Ireland against Dublin again, it’s just not on.”

“He’s one of our own, every kid looked up to him and here it is all taken away from them.

“Honestly, the village now is like a morgue today. It’s like a death in the area, people are just devastated,” Hynes said.

“We’re going to fight it, end of story,” he added.

A commute from Dublin to Galway how many times a week for club training, doesn’t make much sense? Some of the reaction online to this has been quite divided, see it below;

Does this go against everything that the GAA stands for? Or are the days gone of pride of the parish. Surely common sense should prevail here and let the talented football switch clubs to the Dublin club? Interesting times ahead…
