Galway cruised into the semi-finals of the Connacht senior football championship this afternoon by dismantling London with a 5-21 to 0-9 victory in Ruislip.

This one-sided affair officially commenced the 2024 race for the Sam Maguire Cup and saw the Tribesmen running up a 0-11 to 0-3 by the 30-minute mark and netting their first goal shortly afterwards via Cathal Sweeney.

That saw the visitors towards a 1-15 to 0-3 half-time lead and they’d add three more points after the turnaround before coming into a devastating six-minute spell that saw them net four goals.

Céin D'Arcy, Paul Conroy and Tomo Culhane (2) raised the green flags to truly bury the Exiles hopes as the holders won out by 27 points in the end.

The only down side for Padraic Joyce’s men from the trip to the English capital were the knocks picked up by Johnny Heaney and Culhane which further adds to their already extensive injury list.
