Defeat on the double for Galway

BELOW-PAR second half showings from Galway’s two flagship GAA sides saw both come up short in what were effectively the penultimate hurdles of their respective league competitions.

A win over Waterford in the hurling semi-final along with success over Tyrone in Omagh would have left supporters with the prospect of a mouth-watering triple header at Croke Park on Sunday, given that Cathal Murray’s senior camogie team had already booked their place in the Division 1 final against Kilkenny (12 noon).

Instead, with April designated as a 'club month', both men's teams won’t face competitive action until their provincial championships kick into gear.
