I suppose all that's in question next Sunday is the margin of victory  :-\
Be nice if Laythrums could keep it to single figures but keeping it under 20 will be the best they can hope for sadly.

Remember we're a noble race from a land where Kings once trod.

The Laythrum cycle is about 60 years. 94 was the last time. And what a day it was.

15 minutes played Galway 0-5 Leitrim 0-3.

HT Galway 0-12 Leitrim 0-5.

15 minutes to play. Galway 2-17 Leitrim 0-7

FT Galway 4-20 Leitrim 0-9. Galway stroll into the final and will be hard to beat in that final in this form.

The Final is on Sunday at 1 45.
Foregone conclusion per bookies , most pundits and most GAAboard predictors.
I may as well stay at home and wait for the Round 2 Qualifier.

No Galway supporter that is in their right mind considers this a foregone conclusion, as 50/50 a game as you could get. 
We've seen all types of results in this fixture since 2016, draws, huge wins for both sides, narrow wins, I couldn't predict what the result will be on Sunday. There's nothing between the sides and whatever about when they play Mayo, Rossies have zero fear of the maroon and white, last three championship games in Pearse Stadium: draw, win, win.
Galway will need to be totally up for this and playing well on Sunday to take the Nestor Cup, I absolutely think they can win it but it'll be no surprise or shock if Roscommon fans are invading the turf at full time either.

Galway v Roscommon has developed into one of the best rivalries in this sport over the last 7 years.

This will be the 5th Connacht senior final between the two since 2016 with both having won 2 each.  NFL results Galway 2 Roscommon 2 in the last 4 matches even pre season the last 7 FBD finals was Galway v Roscommon and 4-3 in favour of Galway in wins there.

Connacht Underage the last decade (2012 to 2022)

U20/21 titles won

Galway 4 Roscommon 4

In that time frame Galway won two All-Ireland titles U21 in 2013 and U20 in 2020. Roscommon reached All-Ireland finals in 2012,2014 at U21 and U20 2021.

U17/18 Connacht titles won

Galway 4 Roscommon 3

Agree with the last 2 posters a 50/50 game there fir the winning.
Which ever team gets more things right on the day will prevail.
I think for once the weather is to be decent so should be a great game of Connacht football.
