Paul Galvin is once again in the spotlight, after the Kerry and DIT footballer failed to speak to the media at today’s launch of the Ulster Bank Sigerson and Fitzgibbon Cups for 2011 at Croke Park this afternoon.
Galvin, along with Dublin and UCD hurler Liam Rushe were invited to the function by competition sponsors Ulster Bank and the governing body of third Level GAA (Comhairle Ardoidechais) for a photo-shoot and subsequent TV, Print and Radio interviews.
Both players along with representatives from the competition sponsor, Comhairle Ardoideachais Chairman Ray O’Brian and GAA President Christy Cooney posed for photos pitch-side
However, while Liam Rushe was first to emerge for media interviews in the nearby Players Lounge and subsequently obliged waiting journalists for interviews, members of the media were left waiting for Galvin to appear.
Journalists were initially informed that Galvin would only field questions in relation to the Sigerson Cup, and not other aspects such as the fuss over a possible transfer from Fingue to a Dublin club.
However, Galvin failed to show for the awaiting media which included members of some of the main National TV, Radio and Print outlets.
