This evening’s Connacht minor football semi-final between our lads and Galway throws in at MacHale Park in less than an hour’s time. I’m up the other end of the country so I can’t vouch for certain what kind of an evening it is for football but if it’s anything like up here in the capital, conditions should be perfect for the game.
If you’re heading to MacHale Park, then enjoy the action. If you’re not, then Midwest will have full live commentary and there’ll be constant Twitter updates from the usual sources as well.
We’re heading out to friends for a BBQ shortly so I won’t be following the action all that closely myself this evening and I’d say there’s little chance of my rising to any kind of match report, which in any event would only be a second-hand account of what went on in the game. No doubt, though, some of you who frequent here will report back afterwards on the match.
It’s a big test for the lads tonight but one they should be well up for. With Sligo having dumped out the Rossies last night, a win for us would make it a double Connacht final between ourselves and the Magpies on Sunday two weeks. Here’s hoping that the way it’ll go. Best of luck to them. Up Mayo!
