GALWAY manager Micheal Donoghue says he hopes to have Jonathan Glynn involved with the squad again next year, despite living in New York.

Glynn returned to start in this year’s All-Ireland final, Galway’s first Liam MacCarthy success since 1988, but has since gone back to America.

He is, however, part of the Galway squad that will play in tomorrow’s AIG Fenway Hurling Classic in Boston.

“He’s in a predicament in that he’s in a good situation with work, his employers are good to him, he’s in a good position,” Donoghue explained.

 “We would (hope to have him), we’ve had some discussions and I’m sure we’ll have a firmer chat over Christmas.

 “But for now it’s a matter of letting things run the way they are and we’re not putting any pressure on him. It’s only been a couple of weeks.”
