Alex Byrne signs new Galway United contract

first_imgGalway United are delighted to announce that Alex Byrne has signed a new contract with the club.The former Salthill Devon midfielder has spent the last three seasons at Eamonn Deacy Park.The 21-year-old has made 71 appearances for Galway United, scoring one goal for the club in the Playoff final against UCD in 2014.The Galway native has signed a contract extension until the end of 2017 SSE Airtricity League season.Galway United manager Shane Keegan has already added central midfielders David Cawley and Gavan Holohan to his squad for 2017 and he feels the re-signing of Byrne will prove to be another important addition.“I’m delighted to get Alex on board, he’s been with the club for a few years now. He’s progressing and heading towards an age now where he should really be looking to be coming into his prime so he can fulfil the potential that he’s got.“I’d like to think that we’ll see the absolute best of Alex. There really is bundles of potential in him. He’s determined to show everybody just how good he can be next season.“I think Alex will be the first to admit, regarding the impact he can make, it really is all about fitness. He struggled with injury last season and he was chasing his tail by the time he got back. Whereas this time, we had him in as part of our fitness tests a couple of weeks ago, he’s ready to hit the ground running. He’s already started (into a pre-season programme) and he’s planning to work very hard on that over the next four or five weeks.“Alex will be arriving in, in early January, already in good shape, ready to hit the ground running. I think, realistically, that’s all that has been holding Alex back from fulfilling that potential over the last few years, in that he probably hasn’t ever hit peak physical condition.“I think with the likes of Johnny O’Connor in our corner, he’s determined to make sure that we do get Alex in condition to allow him to show the full range of his abilities. I have no doubt that if he commits himself to getting into fantastic shape, he can have a brilliant season for us.”After signing his new deal with the club, Byrne told www.galwayunitedfc.ie that he is determined to make a big impact under Shane Keegan after enduring a frustrating 2016 campaign.“When we arrived back for pre-season I was still injured from the previous season, so it took me a little bit longer to get going,” Byrne explained.“I feel next year there is no excuses. I’m working with the new strength and conditioning coach already, having sessions in the morning, before we get working. I want to hit the ground running in pre-season and then when the season starts, we’ll be more than able for it.“Shane has brought in a lot of good players with a lot of experience. The competition is always welcome, otherwise players will become complacent, which you don’t want. You want a good, competitive atmosphere in training to get the best out of everyone.“I know what is required of me and what everyone expects of me too. I’m just looking forward to getting back into training on the pitch so I can show everyone what I can do.“I feel that the best is yet to come from me, so I’m looking forward to that.”print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more

Racing And Breeding Industry Supports Almost 1,000 Jobs In The West

first_imgprint WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email The horse breeding and racing industry supports almost 1,000 jobs in Galway, Mayo and Roscommon according to an economic impact study for the West region conducted by Horse Racing Ireland and Deloitte. Published today, the study highlights the economic reach of the industry in the West – fuelling annual expenditure of over €120m – and has found that the most significant economic contributor is the Galway Festival which begins on Monday July 29. The seven-day extravaganza is the highest attended racing festival in Ireland, attracting over 141,000 people last year. The festival generates significant expenditure in the region, estimated at close to €20m, and with more than 800 people working at the racecourse during the festival, the economic benefit is spread across the city, the county and the wider Western region. Over the course of the year, close to 200,000 people go racing in the West, with Roscommon and Ballinrobe racecourses proving particularly popular and well attended venues during the summer months. All three Western venues have undergone significant redevelopment in recent years, with Roscommon officially opening new weigh room facilities earlier this month. There are over 300 breeders registered in the region with a broodmare population in Galway, Mayo and Roscommon of over 650. The West is home to approximately 25 trainers, responsible for over 230 horses. Cheltenham Festival-winning trainer Pat Kelly, Norman Lee, trainer of leading Guinness Galway Hurdle contender Sole Pretender, Val O’Brien, Brian Cawley and Fergal Birrane are among the best known.  The point-to-point industry is very strong in the region with the likes of Paurick O’Connor, Martin Cullinane and John Neilan big names in that sphere. Paurick’s brother Derek is one of the most successful point-to-point riders of all time. Brian Kavanagh, CEO of Horse Racing Ireland, said: “This new report underlines the incredible impact the industry has in every corner of the country. Racing in the West revolves around the remarkable Galway festival and the countdown to this year’s meeting is well underway. The economic benefit of the festival reaches far and wide and indeed there is a terrific spin-off for local businesses from the popularity of the racecourses at Roscommon and Ballinrobe throughout the summer months. It is an ambition of Horse Racing Ireland to build on the success of the breeding and racing industry in the West, increasing the numbers employed and adding to an already impressive contribution to the local economy.” Turning into the home straight on the first occasion during the 2m maiden hurdle.Galway Festival.Photo: Patrick McCann last_img read more
