Mayo are the big winners in the 2012 Connacht senior football championship draw, which was made earlier this evening. James Horan’s men have avoided Galway ,Sligo & Roscommon. They must now be strong fancies to build on their 2011 success and at least reach the final
One of the big teams will go out early,as Galway meet Roscommon in the quarter finals. The Tribesmen are currently the sleeping giants of Gaelic Football and could be set for a profitable season. Their Under-21 side were highly impressive last year and once a number of these players are mixed with the existing senior panel, then the men in maroon should have some exciting times ahead.
The winners of the Roscommon/Galway tie will almost certainly face Mayo in the final. A classic contest should be in store and it is difficult to predict who will emerge victorious from this province.
