The draw for this year’s Connacht SFC Championship was made on RTÉ a bit earlier on this evening. In it, we’ve been handed a quarter-final meeting with Sligo, which will take place at Markievicz Park. The winners then face Leitrim in the semi-final, with Galway up against Roscommon in the other semi.
We can’t have any complaints about this draw which, on the face of it, is an ideal one for us. It’s the first time we’ve been drawn in the opposite side from Galway and Roscommon since 2012 and the fact that we have, on paper at least, two matches before the provincial decider is even better.
The provincial action is set to get underway in late June but of course we have the League to look forward to first. Isn’t it great to be thinking ahead to real matches again?
