The draw for next year’s Connacht championship is on right now and we’ve been drawn against Galway in the quarter-finals. Bloody hell, bloody Galway again.
Needless to say it’s a nightmare draw for both of us, partly because neither of us have no desire to get up close and personal with each other so early in the championship but also because whichever of us loses ends up in the first round of the qualifiers.
In 2016 and again this year we came into our meetings with Galway completely undercooked and suffered the consequences. We definitely won’t want to be in a similar state of readiness when we welcome them to Castlebar next May.
