There’s a serious amount of serious football to be played at Croke Park over the next two days but, before all that gets underway, our minors have a serious match of their own to play as they face Offaly in the All-Ireland quarter-final at Hyde Park in a bit over an hour’s time. I couldn’t make it to Roscommon for today’s match but I will be listening in to it on Midwest and I’ll provide some updates on the action via Twitter as the game progresses.
Whatever about the seniors, the county has a proud record in recent years at minor level and Tony Duffy’s charges are now only 60 minutes away from a third successive All-Ireland semi-final appearance at this level. We’re strong favourites to win today but I’ve no idea how strong the Faithful County’s minors are. I guess we’ll all find out soon enough and hopefully our lads will be more than ready for the challenge they’ll face. Best of luck today lads.
