Mayoral Reception in Honour of Galway United - SSE Airtricity League of Ireland Men’s First Division Champions 2023

On Monday 8 January 2024, a mayoral reception was held in City Hall in honour of Galway United. The reception was held in recognition of Galway United’s achievements in the 2023 SSE Airtricity League of Ireland, as the Men’s First Division Champions 2023.  

Cllr. Eddie Hoare, Mayor of the City of Galway, extended his sincere congratulations to the members of the team, the coaches, management, friends and family present, saying, “It is my pleasure to recognise this team of outstanding, and dedicated sports people; the ‘back room’ team in coaching and management; and the family, friends and fans who have supported you in your path to promotion in the SSE Airtricity League of Ireland. 36 matches throughout the 2023 League delivered 30 wins and 4 draws, with Galway United securing a solid 25 points ahead of the second placed team in the League. This outstanding performance sees Galway United progress to the 2024 League of Ireland Premier Division, which is no mean feat with the level of interest, skill, and competition in soccer in Ireland today. Galway is very proud of your achievements, and I’m delighted to have the opportunity to acknowledge and celebrate your win, on behalf of Galway City Council.”

Mayor Hoare closed the event by wishing the team the best in the Premier League in 2024.
