Galway footballers to meet Dublin for first time in 7 years

Galway will meet Dublin in the National Football League for the first time since April 2011 when the sides meet next Sunday in Pearse Stadium (2pm). With Galway having already qualified for the league final after winning their first five games in the division, and Dublin in a similar position, it remains to be seen whether Kevin Walsh and Jim Gavin will field full strength teams or not. Galway have a decent record against the Dubs in the National League, winning 11 and drawing 7 of the sides 35 league meetings. Indeed, Dublin haven’t beaten Galway since 2001, with three draws and 2 Galway wins in the last 5 meetings.
