Paul Galvin returns to the Kerry Panel 2015-03-03 19:56:00

 

The news that Paul Galvin, has returned to the Kerry senior football panel after a year in retirement is as welcome as it was unexpected. It will be recalled that the 4 times All Ireland Medal winner and 3 time All Star Award winner brought a halt to his inter-county career immediately after the Round 1  Allianz Football  League meeting of Kerry and Dublin in Croke Park on February 1st last year.

The return of the Finuge Clubman, will no doubt come as a boost to a panel that has had its fair share of injuries in the aftermath of the All Ireland defeat of Donegal last September.
