THE MANAGEMENT COMMITTEE of Galway GAA have recommended senior football manager Pádraic Joyce for another three-year term. 

Joyce’s name will go forward for ratification at the County Committee meeting next week.

The Galway legend brought the county to the All-Ireland final last July, in what was his third campaign of a three-year term. They were beaten 0-20 to 0-16 by Kerry in the decider. He is now set to remain in place and build on recent improvements.

Joyce took charge in 2020 and endured two Covid-disrupted seasons before earning promotion from Division 2 and winning a Connacht title.  

Meanwhile, Donal Ó Fátharta was proposed for a one-year extension as U20 football manager while All-Ireland winning minor boss Alan Glynn was also proposed for another year in the role.
