The draws for next year’s provincial Championships have just been held, broadcast live on RTÉ Radio One’s Saturday Sport show, and we’ve been drawn against Roscommon in the quarter-final. So, for Kevin McStay, his first Championship outing as Mayo manager will be against the previous county he managed, Roscommon.
In what’s an utterly lopsided draw, the winners of our match against Roscommon will face Galway in the provincial semi-final. Which, of course, means that one of Sligo, Leitrim, London or New York are guaranteed to reach next year’s Connacht final.
Provincial draws, eh – don’t you just love ’em?
