The Rossies need to introspect deeply over the winter.
And draw inspiration from glorious Rossies from the past.

As a young man Carolan first found favour at the house of his first patron, Squire George Reynolds of Lough Scur at Letterfain, Co. Leitrim (himself a harper and poet). It is said that Carolan was at this time only moderately skilled at the harp and the Squire advised him to direct his talents to composing, as he “might make a better fist of his tongue than his fingers.”

So he wasn't very good as an under 21 in the world of senior.
But he worked on it.

Reading the last 2 posts makes me go against all true sporting instincts and start wishing for the anathema of wins for Dublin and Kerry.

And here we have the classic case of the Stockholm Syndrome, psychology students! :P

You're not very good at witty responses.

So glad that I have successfully united you two warring Rossie factions, and your collective ignorance is endearing -- ever hear of O'Neill the Comical, who marched through Roscommon on his way to freeing the benighted south-west of Ireland in 1579? Thought not, philistines!

Can we let this thread die? Let Mayo move onto the Kerry game and The Rossies to move onto the Under 17 AI Final!

Ah, yes he is. Mayo were all ireland minor champions in 2013, u 21 all ireland champions last year which means there is a lot of good talent coming through. What have Roscommon? f**k all except the usual self delusion that has plagued them for generations.
Harder to make the breakthrough to senior as a minor so i'll stick with U21s. Since Mayos 4 in a row Connacht U21 titles 2006 to 2009 they have only reached one U21 Connacht final in 8 years, in the same time Roscommon reached 7 of the last 8 U21 connacht finals winning 4 which would suggest more talent is coming through in Roscommon than Mayo however what they are lacking is experience and Mayo on the other hand arguably the most seasoned and experienced team there is right now.

Roscommons size and resources is about the same as neighbours Sligo,Offally,Longford,Westmeath but what had them a div one team the last two years and a kick of a ball away from reach the All ireland semi final this summer is the work and success they had at underage level and without it Roscommon would be a div 3 team along with their aforementioned neighbours.

Organised football is. Why was Down the first occupied county to win the holiest of holies? Beating the shite out of each other has much deeper roots in Tyrone. Of course the political situation didn't help
