FORMER Northern Ireland soccer international Iain Dowie famously coined the word 'bouncebackability' in the 2003-04 season when describing how his Crystal Palace team had staved off the threat of relegation in December to gain promotion to the Premier League via the play-offs in May.A six-point reversal to Dublin was Galway's lot on Sunday, and they ultimately came up short in their quest for a first Division 1 title since 1981, but they nonetheless bounced back and delivered the required response after a confidence-sapping defeat in which they shipped 2-17 in a humiliating first half against Mayo at Tuam Stadium seven days earlier.

Speaking afterwards, Padraic Joyce sounded an upbeat tone that his side had bounced back positively from that chastening experience and delivered a "performance".
