The Galway Hurling Supporters’ Club (GHSC) is calling on every person in Galway to get behind the Galway hurling team and to become Galway’s ‘16th Man’.
Galway is back in the All Ireland Final on Sunday 30 September, after a hard fought battle against Kilkenny and every supporter will play a part in getting Galway over the line on All-Ireland Final day.
In the build up to the match, the GHSC is asking everyone to show their true colours and to get their maroon and white out. So whether it’s at home, on the car, at a club or a business, show the maroon and white.
The best club, home, car and person will be pictured in all local press and will feature on the GHSC Facebook page.
On All Ireland Sunday, Galway’s 16th Man will kick into play at the 16th minute of the first and second half. On the 16th minute, every Galway supporter is asked to sing the ‘Fields of Athenry’.
This will lift Croke Park and will give the Galway team the extra support they deserve on the day.
The GHSC is asking everyone to tell people about Galway’s 16th Man and to get their colours out.
In the next two weeks, the GHSC wants Galway to turn into a sea of maroon and white, with that sea moving east to Croke Park to bring back Liam MacCarthy after a 22-year wait.
