Following the hurlers' success in winning the Leinster title, the onus is on Kevin Walsh's squad to try to replicate that provincial win when they take on Roscommon in Pearse Stadium this Sunday (2pm)
The 2017 county senior football championship is back in full swing this weekend with a full round of fixtures.
It was close. Far too close and tense in the final 10 minutes for heart rates. But for Johnny Heaney's superb double goal-line block off Danny Kirby and Diarmuid O'Connor, and it is questionable whether Galway would have contained the Mayo charge in the last quarter.
Mayo left Salthill with even more questions to answer than when they were turned over by Galway at the same stage of the competition last year. Last years win by the Tribesmen in MacHale Park - was seen as a smash and grab raid by the visitors, one that Mayo would learn from. This result was something else entirely, the decision by Stephen Rochford to drop Colm Boyle from the starting line-up was something that had everyone talking in the build up to throw in.
The mood in Galway city and county among the GAA fraternity this week is one of giddiness and anticipation as people look forward to the Galway and Mayo Connacht championship semi-final clash next Sunday in Pearse Stadium (4pm).
The Mayo minors bowed out of the minor championship after a very disappointing display against arch rivals Galway in Elvery's MacHale Park in the Connacht quarter final on a scoreline of 3-15 to 0-11. It's a tough one to take on board considering this is the last year of the minor championship as we know it and I can only imagine how devastating it is for the players and management to be eliminated from the championship in April.
Dublin became U21 All Ireland champions for the last time at the expense of Galway when the two sides met in O'Connor Park, Tullamore on Saturday.
This Saturday the Galway U21 footballers head to O’Connor Park in Tullamore to face Dublin in the All-Ireland final (5pm).
Saturday evening at Cusack Park in Ennis at 5.45pm was a fantastic place to be for a Galway football supporter.
With Mayo's place in division one secure for next season it was nice to sit back, relax, and enjoy the league finals played in glorious sunshine in Croke Park last weekend. I was on co-commentary for Radio One for the Kildare and Galway game on Sunday which felt like a friendly encounter for the first half, however it did liven up for the second period.
