Nine Galway teams remain in contention for All-Ireland titles

August 01, 2018

Galway's Shane Walsh, Joe Canning, Leanne Coen and Niamh McGrath.

It's been a great year so far for Galway GAA.

The Tribes are in the hunt for major trophies on all fronts - football, hurling, ladies football and camogie. In fact, there are nine Galway teams who remain in contention to win All-Ireland titles in 2018.

Kevin Walsh's senior footballers have booked their place in the All-Ireland semi-finals with a game to spare in the Super 8s. The minor footballers are also in the last four while the juniors were narrowly beaten by holders Kerry in the All-Ireland final last month. 

This season could potentially be an incredible one for Galway hurling. The Tribesmen have a massive opportunity of making it a clean sweep of All-Ireland honours with their senior, U21 and minor sides all now at the latter stages.

In ladies football, Stephen Glennon's seniors are through to the All-Ireland quarter-finals where they will face Mayo who they already beat in the Connacht decider. The All-Ireland minor A and U16 A titles were annexed last month.

Finally, in camogie, the Tribeswomen have a chance of winning three All-Ireland titles. Their senior, intermediate and U16 A teams have all reached the business end of their respective championships.

Here are the nine Galway teams still contending for All-Ireland glory and their current stage in the championship:
