After hearing John McIntyre’s review of his third season in charge of Galway, the county’s club delegates have been told to return to their clubs and discuss what they feel is the best decision for the immediate future of the county.
McIntyre’s address to the meeting was not enough to convince the delegation that another year in charge would, inthe words of the manager, “be in the best interests of Galway hurling.”
The Tipperary native admitted that some of the Tribesmen’s performance this year were “unacceptable and very disappointing” campaign with particular mention made of the championship defeats to Dublin and Waterford.
Delegates then got the opportunity to have their say and a number of club chairmen questioned the manager on his ability to motive his team and whether he was the right man for the job, the poor performance against Dublin was refereed to a number of times.
The board chairman later confirmed that no approach had been made to any other managers outside the county and there were no immediate plans to do so.
McIntyre must now wait until the next meeting of the board to ratify if he will be given another year in charge.
