Shefflin is bringing former Tribe skipper Joyce, who was part of the 2017 All-Ireland winning coaching set-up, on board.

He’ll be joined by highly-rated Kevin Lally who managed St Thomas’ to three Galway SHC titles from 2018-20. Lally also coached the county minors in the past two seasons where they lifted the All-Ireland title in 2020 and lost the final earlier this summer. 

Joyce and Lally with join former Kilkenny hurler Richie O’Neill, who was confirmed as coach when Shefflin’s appointment was announced. 

Meanwhile, two-time All-Ireland winning minor manager Brian Hanley has been recommended as the new Galway U20 manager on a three-year term, subject to ratification.
