COUNTY Board GAA secretary Mike O’Roirdan has confirmed that stalwart Limerick footballer John Galvin has transferred to Co Clare GAA club, Cratloe.

However, Galvin only applied for a club transfer and therefore can continue to play inter-county football with Limerick in 2015 if he so wishes.

The long serving inter-county midfielder is now free to assist the south-east Clare club in their quest to win a Clare championship double, as he has not played club championship in Limerick this season.

Galvin has lived in Cratloe for the past number of years.

Galvin moves from his native Croom, who slipped from the intermediate grade to the junior ranks last season.

The midfielder transfers to the Clare champions, who already have household names in dual playing brothers Podge and Sean Collins, hurling All Star Conor McGrath and former Ardscoil Ris Harty Cup captains Cathal McInerney and Conor Ryan, among others.
