Galway beat Cork in NHL Opener

Galway 1-27
Cork 1-21

New Galway manager Micheal Donoghue led his side to a comfortable victory over Cork in the Salthill sunshine.

The home supporters in the crowd of over 5,000 at Pearse Stadium were treated to a fine performance by the Tribesmen who recovered from the concession of an early goal to take complete control.

Daithi Burke is expected to be available for Galway's Allianz Hurling League clash with Dublin next Saturday night. Burke missed the opening round win over Cork after failing a late fitness test.

“Daithi carried the injury since the Dublin game (in the Walsh Cup), he just failed a fitness test before the game. We have a few knocks and this being the first competitive game I’m sure we will have a few more," new manager Micheal Donoghue explained to the Irish Examiner.

“We are playing Dublin next Saturday. They beat us by nine points three weeks ago and that score flattered us and the performance we had. It is a huge task going to Parnell Park. We are well aware of that, but we are looking forward to it. We aren’t looking at anything because the games are coming in quick succession.” Donoghue wasn't getting carried away with the Tribesmen's display against the Rebels.

“I think it was important to get back up-and-running. Getting the two points was a big bonus," he continued.
