Semi-finals are warm-up acts for Galway vs Mayo
By JIM CARNEY
GALWAY and Sligo renew rivalry at Pearse Stadium next Saturday evening (6.00 o’clock) as the only two western counties who failed to get anything of merit from last year’s Connacht Senior Football Championship.
The 2011 Connacht champions Mayo beat London, Galway, Roscommon and Cork on their way to the All-Ireland semi-finals in which they gave a creditable display in losing to Kerry; Roscommon had big wins over New York and Leitrim before losing to Mayo and then they played well against Tyrone, although defeated 3-19 to 1-14; Leitrim had the memory of a well-earned 1-10 to 0-10 win over Sligo to sustain them after losing heavily to Roscommon next time out, and to Down at Páirc Esler, Newry.
