Galway have all the pieces to solve All-Ireland puzzle – Farrell – Independent.ie

Galway have "all the pieces of the jigsaw" to land the 2020 All-Ireland SHC title "if they can put them together", according to former manager Cyril Farrell.

arrell famously led the Tribesmen to three All-Ireland crowns in the 1980s and he believes they have all the attributes needed to climb the summit once again having ended a 29-year wait for Liam MacCarthy in 2017.

"Galway are capable of winning the All-Ireland, I'm not saying they're playing brilliantly but they have the pieces of the jigsaw, it's up to the boys over them to put them together," Farrell said.

"If they can put them together, they are going to be there or thereabouts, even before they won the last two league games. They have the pieces if they put them together, it's just a matter of getting the best blend together but they're not far off.

Dangerous

"They have the hurlers and if they can get the right blend and get a run of games, they'll be hard beaten. They'll be dangerous if they can get a run at all and they were horribly unlucky last year."

There was plenty of movement out west in the off-season with Michel Donoghue parting ways as boss having led them to the promised land three years ago and Limerick native Shane O'Neill taking charge.

Farrell has been impressed with newcomers Darren Morrissey, Brian Concannon and anna Murphy under O'Neill's watch and while no return date is set amid the coronavirus pandemic, he feels qualification from the Leinster SHC is their only goal for 2020 having missed out last season.

"If I was on the management team, I'd privately be saying to them, 'Listen, if we finish number three, I'm quite happy'. All you want to do is get out. You'll be happy to get out and just live to fight another day," he said.
