Much of a crowd there syferus

I missed the Luas listening to Willie so I donít know, but over on Stolen Sheep they said it was a poor crowd. The GAA seems to be getting its wish of destroying this grade.

O'Laoi's teammates won't want to see him for a while I'd say. Straight red card after 10 minutes when you are on top and leading by 3. Very likely cost his team the game. I remember something similiar happening with Michael Daly against Mayo a few years ago but that was much closer to half-time and 2 yellows rather than a straight red.

That said I'll wait until I see it though because have heard from a couple of people since that it should have been a yellow for a push in the chest rather than a red for a strike. Either way disappointing end for a Galway side whom with a full compliment of players would defnitely have had designs on maybe reaching the final again this year.

Along with Robert Finnerty, discipline and finishing let them down big time today.

Big blow for Galway. Didn't see that coming.
Roscommon surely red hot favourites, 2 games under belt and at home.

Great unexpected. win by our ladeens today.
Unfortunately had to work so coukdnt make Tuam at that silly time.
Now that the Rhus are in the Final will the CC discover that the recent improvements to the Hyde mean that the licensed capacity will go up 3 or 4,000. ::)
2018- 2 Cupeens won, 2 to go.

Today's u20 match reminded me of recent Galway v mayo encounters in that the better team on paper lost due to indiscipline.
the big difference is no qualifier route to redeem themselves.
well done to roscommon,should be a good final and more pressure on the limited tickets!😁

Mayo are very average would expect ros to win after beating a fancied Galway
Not a sheep stole in Castlebar since 1986.

With Galway taken out a few lads over on Mayogaablog are taking this Mayo team up as potential All Ireland winners its almost like they have won Connacht already.
