All-Ireland winning boss praises Dubs

GALWAY manager, Tony Ward, had praise for Dublin's resolve in Saturday's All-Ireland Senior Camogie Championship clash at Athenry.

It was one of those days, suggested Tony, that the scoreboard didn't tell the whole story.

"I don't think the final score did Dublin justice," said Tony.

"There was a ten to fifteen minute spell in the second half when they were completely on top of us.

"They had some bad luck. They were getting plenty of the ball, but the scores just didn't come."

A win for Galway was essential after their opening home defeat to Wexford.

"I felt we worked hard as a team." added Tony.

"Sometimes, when you have a big lead at half-time, it's hard to get going again in the second half, but our subs freshened things up again.

"And fair play to our backs. When Dublin put us under pressure, they were able to see it through.

"We have things to work on. If we let the likes of Cork dominate us for a spell in a game, they will punish us."
