2008 Galway United F.C. season. This is a list of competitive matches played by Galway United F.C. during the 2008 League of Ireland Premier Division season. Jeff Kenna served as player-manager of Galway United F.C. during this season. During the season there were rumours of financial troubles and the selling of the players within the squad, most notably Derek O'Brien. Relegation also loomed on the horizon. However, a surge of great form which saw the United reach the 2008 FAI Cup semi-finals gave the club a fighting chance of survival. A 3–0 victory over Finn Harps in the penultimate game of the season put survival in United's own hands and their victory the following week away to UCD ensured that Galway United would be playing in the League of Ireland Premier Division in 2009.[1]
