Waterford v Galway - Boston Connections

Andy Smith in Action for Boston Galway
Sitting here watching the NHL match between Galway and Waterford on TG4, it is interesting to see several players who have graced the Canton turf over the last four or five years. Clinton Hennessey looked solid as ever between the sticks for Waterford, and with his side trailing by 6 points even made a little run outfield. Waterford lost the ball....but Hennessey conceded just one goal, an unstoppable shot in the first half that put Galway in the drivers seat. Galway have Andy Smith playing wing forward and David Tierney in the middle of the field, Smith has managed to bag a couple of points as has Tierney. Both players played for the Boston Galway club in recent years. Also Richie Murray who played for Fr. Tom's last North American winning side is playing wing back for Galway, and Iarlaith Tannion is in the subs but no appearance from him on the field. Adrian Cullinane who played for the Wexford club is also in the middle of the field for Galway, and he managed a point himself. Weather conditions looked brutal, plenty of rain. Galway easily won by a score of 1-21 to 2-12, Waterford's second goal coming late in the game s not even as close as the score indicates....maybe waterford should send a few more players to Boston for the summer!
