“We’re looking forward to the game, Dundalk are a major force to reckon with. We haven’t lost a league game at home this year, so we go into the game with confidence but we know what they (Dundalk) can bring. It’ll be a great game in front of a full house and we’re looking forward to it.”

    LAST TIME OUT ⏮   





Loughrea man, Patrick Hoban has been a key performer for many years for the lilywhites, with 144 goals and counting ahead of Friday’s game. Hoban is a classic number nine, his finishing ability and physicality is second to none in the League Of Ireland.


Another Galway man in Daryl Horgan is certainly one to watch for Friday’s game. Recently signing for Dundalk, Horgan, a former Ireland international brings pace, technicality and directness to his game whether he is deployed centrally as a ten or out wide as an inverted winger he will cause trouble to any defense.

Stephen O'Donnell

Stephen O’Donnell, one of the many western people involved in the Dundalk setup has been around the league for years, playing first in 2007 with Bohemians. He then retired in 2018 before taking the step into management with St. Patrick’s Athletic in 2019, where he stayed for two years before moving to his former team Dundalk, this time as a manager.

“It’s going to be physical, it’s going to be second balls, long balls, all that… We’ve watched Galway, we’ve done our homework on them and we know what to expect, so it’s up to us to deal with that and then show our quality as well.”

DARRAGH LEAHY, Speaking to Dundalk F.C.
