I only caught the last quarter on the laptop of the Connacht semi-final that has just concluded in Pearse Stadium and I’m as gobsmacked as I’d say Alan Mulholland and his charges are right now at that second half reversal of fortune. Sligo seemed to be in big bother at the break, where they trailed by four or five, but that was one hall of a second half rally that saw them sweep by their hosts and win with a fair bit to spare.
So, no meeting with Galway for us in Connacht this year and no Connacht final in Pearse Stadium either. Instead, if we beat Leitrim in two weeks time, we’ll be heading for a provincial decider against the Magpies in McHale Park.
Well, you lot might be – I’ll still be away on my hols wherever the final takes place. And, after Sligo’s heroics this evening, maybe that’s a timely reminder to us that the only match we should be thinking about at this stage is our provincial semi-final with the Ridge County on the 24th of this month.
