John Galvin, better known to his team mates as “Gally”, was the linchpin of Albions Midfield for the 90’s & 00’s. Gally captained Albion to promotions in both the West Cork League & Cork AUL along with a League Cup in ’99. He was best known for his crunching tackles and is still regarded by his ex team-mates & Albion enthusiasts as one of the best players to don the red & white of De Courcey Albion. John now spends his days looking forward to once again making his famous crunching tackles on the new crop of Albion players.
