On ‘Over The Line’ this week (Monday, 21st June), our special guest was Ballinasloe’s famous footballing son, Sean Keeley.

Sean, who played at right full back on the 1956 Galway team that beat Cork in the All-Ireland final, talks to Darren Kelly about his years playing for Galway and Ballinasloe.

(Below is the extended raw interview featuring the full 65 minutes of Darren and Sean’s chat).

There are six survivors from the 1956 team – Jack Kissane (Salthill/Knocknacarra), Joe Young (Barna), Gerry Kirwan & Sean Keeley (Ballinasloe), Frank Evers (Menlough) & Seamus Colleran (Tuam Stars).

Galway Bay FM’s ‘Over The Line’ broadcasts every Monday and Friday from 8pm.
