Connacht’s long wait for success in the little-loved M Donnelly Interprovincial Football Championship (for which there is such a dearth of interest that even the indefatigable Martin Donnelly is now publicly wondering if enough is enough) goes on: tonight’s semi-final defeat to Munster means that four full decades have now passed since the last Western win in the competition.
Munster won tonight’s clash with Connacht down at the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick by 1-16 to 1-13 to set up a final meeting with Ulster over in Ruislip next month. That’s about all the details I have, I’m afraid – there’s nothing on the wires (as yet anyway) about the game so I don’t know who got the scores or, indeed, who lined out for the Westerners. In this regard, it would have been kinda useful had the Connacht Council bothered its arse to publish a starting fifteen in advance of the game. But sure, what’s the point – isn’t it only the Railway Cup after all?
