A GALWAY CLUB is seeking for the county’s hurling sides to enter the Munster championship at all grades from the 2018 season onwards.

The Liam Mellows club in Galway city has tabled the motion for the county’s convention next month.

There has been growing unrest in Galway over their current arrangement in Leinster which doesn’t allow the county’s minor and U21 teams to participate in the province while they do not have home advantage for any senior championship games.

Last night it was confirmed that the Galway senior hurlers Leinster quarter-final against Dublin next season will take place in O’Connor Park, Tullamore on Sunday 28 May.

Galway have featured in the Leinster senior hurling championship since 2009. In their eight campaigns to date, they have played 23 matches in that championship but have yet to play any at home.

Do you think they should be allowed into Munster? Let us know in the comments section below.
