Mayo and Galway attempt to do Connacht proud

Mayo and Galway attempt to do Connacht proud

Both Mayo and Galway represent Connacht in the TG4
All Ireland Senior Quarter finals to be held next
Saturday August 28th

Mayo reigning All Ireland Champions take on Cork
in O’Connor Park, Tullamore next Saturday at 1.30.
This is a repeat of this 2003/2004 League Final.
Cork dominated most of that game and was in control
up till the break, Experience and patience in the
second half saw Mayo lift the title.

In a very tough TG4 campaign down south Cork had
to fight hard to capture the Munster Title. Youth,
teamwork and great football skills bring this young
Cork team to the forefront having matured beyond
their years the entire combination will cause great
problems for Mayo. Mayo on the other hand have had
a relatively poor season this year having lost twice
to Galway and pushed to the limits by Roscommon.
This poor start may have been the ingredient needed
to push Mayo to the third TG4 All Ireland in a row.

The only warning I can give to Cork is ” It’s the
season for the wasps to be about and watch for the
sting in the tail”.

Laois and Galway take to the stage at the same time
next Saturday but at Pearce Park, Longford. To date
2004 has been successful for Galway with the capture
of the CBE cup over their old revivals Mayo in the
TG4 Connacht Championship Final. A strong sprinkle
of young players and more established solid heads
leave Galway in a strong position to be contenders
to go all the way.

The Tribeswomen take on Laois knowing well that
this is not a push over. Winners of the 2001 TG4
All Ireland senior final and 2003 Senior League
winners Laois cannot be taken for granted. Very
little has been highlighted about Laois this year
but the work has been going on in the background,
many experienced heads are behind this team, they
have upset the odds on many occasion, Galway be

Both venues Tullamore and Longford will host two
Quarterfinals apiece and support for your County
is very important so it is vital that you get out
and build an atmosphere ladies football is entitled
too. Let make it our business to get a large travelling
support to all games that as always produces football
of the highest standards.
