Kevin Walsh makes four alterations to Tribesmen XV
Galway football manager Kevin Walsh has made four changes to his side for Sunday's Connacht semi final with Sligo. Bernard Power, Kieran Molloy, Gareth Bradshaw and Fiontán Ó Curraoin all come into a side given a fright by London in the quarter finals.
Power replaces Ruairi Lavelle in goal, while Molloy and Bradshaw are introduced to the half-back line in place of David Wynne and Gary O’Donnell. The other change sees Ó Curraoin introduced to midfield in place of Padraic Cunningham.
Galway were far from impressive in reaching the semi finals, with a 0-16 to 1-9 win over London in Ruislip earlier this month.
