Galway 3-12 Monaghan 0-14 (Men’s National Football League Commentary, Report & Reaction)

Galway picked up their second victory in this year’s Allianz National Football League on Sunday (3rd March) following this seven-point victory over Monaghan at St. Tiernach’s Park, Clones.

Cathal Sweeney, Rory Cunningham and John Maher got the goals for the maroon and white as they moved up to fifth place in Division 1 on five points.  The result leaves them two clear of relegation, but still just one point behind a league final spot.

Here is the commentary of the game with Jonathan Higgins, Padraic Cunningham and Kevin Dwyer.

Galway Bay FM’s Kevin Dwyer reports.

Afterwards, debutant Rory Cunningham, who scored 1-3, chatted to Galway Bay FM’s Jonathan Higgins.
