Galway defeated Antrim by three points and Donoghue has made a raft of changes with the notable inclusions of Padraig Mannion and Conor Whelan, both of whom picked up their first All-Stars last year.

Also in the team is Sean Linnane, nephew of Galway legend Sylvie, and 2015 All-Ireland winning minor Shane Bannon. Both Linnane and Bannon are newcomers to the Tribe squad for the 2018 season.
