All-Ireland winning Galway hurler Davy Glennon has transferred to Westmeath, ending his long association with the Connacht county.
The 29-year old was part of the Galway panel that won a first Liam McCarthy Cup in 29 years back in 2017, defeating Waterford in the final. Glennon also won an U21 All-Ireland in 2011, scoring a goal in the final against Dublin.
RTÉ are reporting that he qualifies to play for Westmeath through the parentage rule, while also being involved in a business in Athlone.
While it remains unclear if he will be able to play in the Joe McDonagh Cup this year, the Galway native will be a big addition to Westmeath in 2021. Glennon will bring plenty of big game experience to the county, having been part of some huge occasions in the past.
They will open their championship campaign with a game against Antrim on October 25th, with games against Meath, Carlow, and Kerry set to take place before the end of November. Westmeath will also play in Division 1 of the National Hurling League for a second consecutive season next year.
The county's backroom team has also been boosted by the addition of Portumna's 2014 All-Ireland winning manager Noel Larkin.
