Gary Cooke talks to Mick Galwey – Part of the Lions Legends Series


Mick Galwey won an All-Ireland Senior Football Championship with the Kerry Gaelic football team in 1986, as a 19-year-old, before turning to rugby union. He is thus the only winner of an “All-Ireland” in both rugby union and Gaelic football. Making international Rugby debut in 1991 against France and became the team’s captain ten years later. In the 1993 Five Nations Championship match against England, Galwey rounded off a fine display in the 17–3 defeat by scoring the only try of the game. His efforts were rewarded later that year when he was selected for the Lions tour to New Zealand
