Since the start of 2019, Galway has now won two All-Ireland Camouflage titles and three Littlewoods Ireland National Leagues, meaning that of all the top-level national honors offered at the time, the only award they missed was 2020 All-Ireland, while Dennis Galle’s late penalty kicker Snatched an amazing win for.
This is a great time to get involved with the team, and goalkeeper Sarah Healy certainly is not going to allow that.
“Everyone says that when you’re playing, you want to win as much as you can when you get the chance,” Healy said.
“You don’t know what’s going to happen next year. It’s a clich, but we really take it one game at a time and taste each one. “
Your 2022 LittleLoodsarl Division 1 League Champion!
Galway backed up their 2021 All-Ireland success with the league title after a strong return to Croke Park last night. Congratulations to all the girls and Cathal and her management team!

Amy O’Connor’s goal for Cork in Saturday night’s final at Croke Park was the second green flag in front of Healy’s post during the county’s five league games this year.
The St. Thomas netminder pays homage to his defense, where proven stars like team captain Sarah Darwin have helped blend in with young players like Roisin Black and Rachel Hannifi in the set-up.
“I’m happy with that record, but it probably shows the caliber of our backs more than I do. I don’t think I really had a lot of shots to save. So it really shows how good our six backs are and the players who come off the bench.
“I think (our return) really shows the development of our character in the last few years. They got the goal to six and we didn’t panic, we kept tipping over the points and we knew the goal would come if we kept working hard and taking our chances. So it was a case of not just panicking, taking points and winning in the end. “
Saturday night was a huge asset for Galway management to be able to call a host of those interested in securing a starting point for the championship. Carrie Dolan scored 1-4 after almost two-thirds of the game, while Katherine Finarty and Sabina Rabbit also scored important goals.
“It really shows the depth of our panel,” notes Healy.
“There was intense competition in training and no one was able to pick a team. As players we had no idea what the team was until they named it, anyone could be in it, it’s a great thing because you need it on a panel. You have to get people off the bench to get things done. “
Some sort of drive was definitely needed after Saturday’s half-time, as Cork slowly took control of the game before O’Connor’s strike put the rebels six points ahead. However, Galway’s recent history shows that they are constantly finding a way to get back into the fray.

“We were three points down at half time and we talked about how they would go up to five if they got the first one or two, but we can’t panic. Then they came out and got the goal and we didn’t panic, we worked hard and we kept going and it shows what we’re doing as a team.
“When you think about it, a game like this is probably worth about five training sessions. Competitive games where everyone fights to win, that’s what you get.
“We were really tested there and everyone involved worked hard to make sure we got through it and hopefully we’ll be able to continue it.”
