Glancing at Galway, again

This morning’s draw for next weekend’s All-Ireland SFC preliminary quarter-finals pits us, once again, against Galway. Sunday’s match at Pearse Stadium (throw-in 3pm) will be our fourth meeting with the neighbours this year, having played them twice in this year’s National League and before that in the Dome in the pre-season FBD League. Seán Hurson of Tyrone is the ref […]

Here it is: Match reports: GAA, RTÉ, Western People, Midwest Radio (includes post-match audio), Roscommon People, Irish […]
