Padraic Joyce didn't mince his words after his Galway side crashed to a 15-point defeat to Mayo at Tuam Stadium.
The Tribesmen conceded a whopping 2-17 in the first half as they suffered their heaviest loss to their arch rivals in decades.
“A disappointing day... probably the most embarrassing day I’ve been involved with Galway in my career,” Joyce said in an interview with Galway Bay FM.
“At 43 years of age, I’ve never seen a performance as bad to tell you the truth. We were a mile off the mark, like men against boys all day.
“And I take responsibility for that as the manager of the team. I’m not going to throw the lads under the bus. I prepared them, I got them out on the pitch and I take full responsibility.”
