    Live audio stream of the Playoff Final 2nd Leg.

    Galway 2-1 up on aggregate from the first leg. No away goals rule.

    Kicked off 15 mins ago. Keegan started.

    Edit: They are swapping back and over between the match and a rugby game, until the rugby is over.

    (If you're not a Yank, or you're not of a certain age, or both, you probably won't get this reference, but look up the "Heidi Bowl" if you'd like to know more.)

    That's hilarious...

    The second half is only starting now so not missing too much.

    Jake Keegan shot was saved and Manning followed it up. 2-0 on the night and 4-1 on aggregate (latest).

    Jake Keegan was called ashore with about 5 minutes to go.

    Probably his last action for Galway FC.

    3-0 final score on the night. 5-1 on aggregate. Galway promoted.

    Where do you think he will go?

    No idea, but players are out of contract now and even if he were to sign up for next year, he wouldn't be paid until March.

    He has shown that he has no problem moving to advance his career. He might have done really well at Galway, but I my personal opinion is that he won't be at Galway next season.

    I know this has probably been discussed but do players for the bigger clubs like Sligo Rovers, Shamrock rovers and the like get paid year round?

    Not many at all.

    Maybe a couple of the players who have multi-season contracts, of which there aren't many.

    Thanks for putting all the effort into this thread... It's been fascinating and I appreciate it...

    No problem.

    Jake may not be entirely finished in Galway yet, as he is one of the frontrunners for the Player Of The Year award, which will be presented at the end of season party.

    Read in a recent interview that Jake may return home but perhaps plans to try to make a name for himself here in the Premier Division for a couple of years and maybe get a good move back to the States on the back of it. That seemed the gist of the what I remember anyway.

    Ryan Guy did something similar when he played for St. Patrick's, which led to a contract in MLS with New England. He wasn't a regular in MLS, but he did make 45 appearances over 2.5 years and now plays in the second division, with one of the bigger clubs in Texas. It's definitely doable.

    Edit: It also got him a NT call-up with Guam! :D

    Apparently Jake has signed on for the 2015 season.

    There's a weekly highlights show that shows every game in the Premier Division, so you'll be able to see for yourselves how he gets on.

    Here's Jake scoring Galway's second in the 2nd leg of the playoff Semi-Final to wrap up the scoring at 4-1 on aggregate.

    Make sure to listen to the celebrations.

    Edit: Starts at around 47 seconds.

    Sick chant. Glad he signed on again.
