Galway 4-37

IT Carlow 0-15

GALWAY WERE MUCH too strong for IT Carlow as they ran out 34-point winners in Saturday’s Walsh Cup semi-final.

The Tribesmen led by 3-21 to 0-5 after the opening half in Pearse Stadium as they continued to tune up for their Division 1B opener against Offaly on 12 February.

And while they took their foot off the pedal in the second half (relatively speaking), they had more than enough in hand to set up a meeting with either Kilkenny or Wexford.

Conor Whelan, Sean McInerney — who finished with 2-3 from play — and Jason Flynn scored the Galway goals.

In the Munster Hurling League, Waterford were 4-21 to 0-15 winners against Kerry. Limerick and Cork meet in the final on Sunday afternoon.
