Multitable delete with TRIGGER.

Neilsr helped me get started with my first stored procedure. Here is what I have now after rewriting his example for my database. Below is an abbreviated version of a 13 table delete. When I try to import it into phpmysql I get a 1064 syntact error after BEGIN. Every table involved including gallery has a galid.

I have tried:
WHERE tags.galid = OLD.id
WHERE tags.galid = OLD.galid

Maybe the problem is else where. Can someone help? Thanks.

DELIMITER $$
DROP TRIGGER IF EXISTS gal_delete;

CREATE TRIGGER gal_delete AFTER DELETE on gallery
FOR EACH ROW
BEGIN

DELETE FROM tags
    WHERE galid = OLD.id;

DELETE FROM comments
    WHERE galid = OLD.id;

DELETE FROM log
    WHERE galid = OLD.id;

END$$
