Galvin returns to Plunkett’s

02 December 2008
Former Dublin football star Mick Galvin has been appointed manager of top Dublin club St. Oliver Plunkett’s/Eoghan Ruadh for the coming season.

Galvin, who was a member of Dublin’s 1995 All-Ireland winning side, is originally from the Navan Road club, but switched his allegiances to neighbouring Na Fianna following Plunkett’s relegation to the intermediate ranks, and went on to win three Dublin SFC titles as a player and a manager with the Mobhi Road outfit.

Galvin was a member of Mick Deegan’s management team with the All-Ireland winning Dublin junior team this year. He takes over Plunkett’s at an exciting time for the club. Boasting the talents of the Brogan brothers, Jason Sherlock, Ross McConnell, ex-Offaly full back Conor Evans and former Laois star David Sweeney, they won last year’s Dublin senior league before going on to contest their first senior final this year, which they lost somewhat unluckily to Kilmacud Crokes after a replay.

Galvin succeeds Dermot Kelly, who had been at Plunkett’s helm for the past four years.
