The 29-year-old who played for his local club Kilkerrin-Clonberne up to the end of last season is hoping to play in this year’s Dublin senior football championship which gets underway shortly.

The news comes just a week after Walsh kicked 0-9 in Galway’s defeat to Kerry in the All-Ireland final.

“I’m living and studying in Dublin now so it’s the right move for me at this point in my career. Kilmacud Crokes are a great club and it would be a wonderful challenge,” Walsh said.

Walsh who worked in banking before returning to college last year is studying a BA (Hons) in Physical Education at Portobello Institute accredited by John Moore’s University, Liverpool, and has been travelling up and down all year for training with Galway.

“Thanks to John (Divilly) I’ve got a life from him to training from Dublin a number of times throughout the season but travel certainly takes its toll on the body. I love football and want to keep playing for as long as I can,” he added.

Walsh fully intends to return to Kilkerrin-Clonberne to finish out his career but is hoping to play with Crokes for the foreseeable future.
