PAUL Galvin is on the verge of joining Kilmacud Crokes and is expected to play hurling for the club next year.

However, there are no indications yet as to whether he will line out for the club’s footballers.

Galvin has applied for a transfer from his home hurling club Lixnaw and the paperwork has also been signed by both the Dublin county board and Kilmacud Crokes.

The transfer- while not finalised - is now considered a formality.

A club official confirmed to the Herald that Galvin, who lives in the Dublin 4 area, had approached Crokes with a view to playing hurling this year.

And though he would then be eligible to play football, he has not yet made his intentions known.

Once considered one of Kerry’s most talented hurlers, the four-time All-Ireland football medallist, who is now 36, retired from inter-county football for the second time last September after Kerry’s All-Ireland final defeat to Dublin.
