Déjà vu as Galway take on  Rossies
Déjà vu as Galway take on  Rossies

THE SEASON’S first silverware will be on offer in Kiltoom on Sunday afternoon when Galway and Roscommon do battle in the FBD Connacht Football League final for the third successive year (throw-in: 2 pm).
Roscommon came away with the spoils in 2015 before Galway turned the tables in a narrow win at Tuam Stadium 12 months ago and went on to rip the Rossies apart in an 11-point Connacht final replay in July.
Whether victory amounts to a whole hill of beans this weekend is debatable, but it does provide Galway manager Kevin Walsh and his Roscommon counterpart Kevin McStay, now in sole charge after Fergie O’Donnell’s departure, with a further opportunity to fine-tune preparations and assess their personnel ahead of National League openers on Sunday week.
