It had been reported in December of last year that Kerry Football Legend Paul Galvin had put in an application to transfer from Kilmacud Crokes to St. Oliver Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh. The 37 year old Lixnaw native had only moved to Kilmacud early last year but due to work commitments didn’t feature too heavily for the club.
And with Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh appointing former Dublin star Paul Curran as their new senior manager, Galvin saw this move as chance to help the Navan Road side win their first county championship and maybe more.
Curran’s managerial career has been quite successful, with County and Leinster honours for Ballymun Kickhams in 2012, and also a county championship with Roscommon side Clann na nGael.
This morning Paul Galvin confirmed on the Dermot and Dave show on Today FM that he he will indeed play a part for the Navan Road club this year.
“I’m going to play a bit in Dublin this year, with Plunkett’s out in Cabra,” he said.
“I’m friends with a few of the boys there and there are people from home involved at board level. They are good lads and they have a very good manager.”
Having done battle battle with Dublin in many years of the championship, the tables will turn as Galvin will now join forces with former foes in the Brogan brothers, Alan and Bernard. And hopefully if work commitments don’t get in the football fans will see a lot of Galvin in a Plunkett Eoghan Ruadh shirt this year.
