Ros v Mayowestros the big one.
Sligo/Leitrim unlikely to trouble Galway.
Hopefully a dry day on the 21st so we can all sit out in the lovely new seats in the Hyde.

Padraic Joyce has suggested  an extension to the season to allow a decent break between the end of the League and the start of the Championship .Dessie Dolan has also been talking along these lines

So they can have 30 or 40 more training sessions?

Can somewhat understand those prices if they were charging €30 for the Connacht final but for Quarter final? for the Connacht championship launch last week it was basically used to talk up and advertise the Dome in Bekan by the national media who were all invited to praise the "great visionary" JP.

Last year I seem to recall the Rossies having 3 matches over 4 weekends.
If they had beaten Kildare they would have had 4 over 5 weekends.

This is insane

Armagh club leagues start this weekend. They'll play 12 games in a row with no breaks up to and including the weekend of the 6th July. Mostly with small squads and in a lot of cases minors playing Friday Monday. You won't hear a word of complaint though. Players want games.

If there wasn't matches being played managers would be dogging the shite out of players in training anyway so complaining about games doesn't wash with me.

Whats the feeling on Shane Walsh in Galway.

Played first game or two of league and then got injured.

Has been on holiday since that and I see hes in Portugal this week too.

Definitely deserves a holiday considering all the football hes played.

But it seems as if he gets special treatment and that he seems more committed to Kilmacud than Galway.

But I may be totally wrong on that.

Rossfan

I'd imagine Galway are hoping to have everyone available for the AI series.
They have 2 handy Connacht games coming up and they'll probably take the Connacht Final as they find it.

Sligo v Leitrim could go either way but looks like Ros Andy is concentrating more on the u20s so shoild be a win for Sligo.

Getting top seed i'd imagine would be a big advantage though; be guaranteed to face one of Derry Kerry or Dublin if not.

Didnt do them much good last year mind.

I presume provincial finalists avoid each other in group stages?

Odd post. Got injured in round 1 of the NFL and will be back playing for Galway once he overcomes it.
