The draw for the All-Ireland quarter-finals were made a few minutes ago and we’ve been paired against the winners of the Limerick/Meath tie. That’s just grand – another week off and then revenge for 1996.
Back on the field, the minors had a great win in this afternoon’s Connacht final replay, winning at Hyde Park by 1-8 to 0-5. That’s back-to-back Connacht titles at minor level for us and our fourth minor provincial title this decade. It also completes a provincial senior/U21/minor clean sweep for us, which is no mean achievement so well done all involved for that. The minors now face beaten Munster finalists Tipperary in the All-Ireland quarter-finals at O’Moore Park, Portlaoise on Monday week, while Roscommon must face Munster champions Kerry on the same date at the same venue.
