The men’s inter-county year is over but the women are still standing, with the LGFA Senior football Championship now at the All-Ireland quarter-final stage. This means it’s knockout football from here on and on Saturday we’re up against Galway at Pearse Stadium (throw-in 1.30pm) in an all-or-nothing tie, with a place in the final four up for grabs.
The two counties have already met this summer, with Michael Moyles’ charges outgunning the neighbours in the Connacht final in early May. They won that game at MacHale Park by 3-13 to 2-9, to clinch their first Connacht title since 2016.
Galway have fared better since then, however, as they topped their group, beating Cork and Tipperary, which earned them a home quarter-final tie. Our defeat to Armagh, meanwhile, meant we finished second in our group, with the draw for the quarter-finals sending us on the road to Salthill.
Tickets for Saturday’s match are available here and it’ll be shown live on TG4.
Rob and I are heading to the game and we’ll have a Final Whistle podcast episode online for club members on Patreon soon after it’s over.
The best of luck to the team on Saturday.
