I may be closer to Thessaloniki than Tuam at the minute but I still managed, thanks to @MayoGAA and others on Twitter, to follow what was happening earlier on in that do-or-die Connacht MFC semi-final against Galway. It sounded like one hell of a match, with our lads – defending Connacht and All-Ireland champions at this level – in serious bother at the break but a spirited second half comeback culminated with Enda Gilvarry’s charges taking the lead for the first and only time in the match with just seconds to go and that was enough to seal what sounded like a real smash and grab one-point victory.
It finished 3-7 to 1-12 in the end and the minors now progress to the Connacht final, where they’ll face Roscommon in the curtain-raiser to the senior decider at MacHale Park on Sunday week.
More on that stirring win in Tuam from a guest contributor in the morning.
