As well as finding out where this year’s Connacht final is going to be played we’ll also (barring a draw) know by Sunday evening who we’re going to be facing in the provincial decider on July 21st. Leitrim last made it to a Connacht final in 2000 – when they lost by 1-13 to 0-8 to Galway – while the Exiles are aiming for uncharted territory should they win on Sunday.
Both teams for Sunday were named last night – full details are here. Leitrim have made five changes from the side that comprehensively dealt with New York in the preliminary round way back at the start of May while London have two alterations from the team that started against Sligo. If you’re planning to heading to Carrick on an intelligence-gathering expedition, by the way, ticketing details on the match, where throw-in is at the nice old-fashioned time of 3.30pm, are here. The match isn’t being shown live on TV.
Leitrim are at 8/15 with Paddy Power to prevail, not overwhelming favourites but warmly fancied all the same. What do you reckon – will there be celebrations on Sunday night in Dromahair or Dollis Hill, Mohill or Maida Vale, Kiltyclogher or Knightsbridge? Time to vote.
Will it be Leitrim or London on Sunday?
