Our Impressions of Terryland Park
Galway United F.C. was founded as Galway Rovers 1937 and were invited to join the league in 1977. United currently (2003) play in the First Division of the eircom League having missed out on promotion by a heart breaking extra time goal to Drogheda earlier this year.
The recently developed Terryland Park has a capacity of 6,000 of whom 1,800 are seated. Its a compact little ground with both the stand and terracing close to the pitch. The home fans are friendly and segregation is unheard of, the noisiest and most colourful of whom tend to congregate in the centre of the stand under the Galway United Independent Supporters Association banners. The pitch is generally recognised as one of the best in the eircom League despite the incessant rain that is a feature of the Galway climate.
