Galway come into this game on the back of two wins on route to the final. Galway needed penalties to see off Mayo after 0-14 to 1-11 draw in Round 1. They then beat Leitrim in the Connacht semi-final comphrensively 1-12 to 0-02. Donal O’Fatharta who replaced Padraic Joyce as managed will look to players like Tomo Culhane, Matthew Copley and Matthew Tierney. Speaking to the Connacht Tribune, he said Galway are looking forward to the game.
“So, we are looking forward to it. It’s a challenge to the boys, it’s a Connacht final, we are at that stage”. He continued, “I know some of the guys on the panel last year won one, but the majority of the guys wouldn’t have a medal at U20 level.”
Roscommon come into the game on the back of beating Sligo 1-11 to 1-08 in Round 1. They will look to players like Darragh Walsh, Patrick Gillooly and Niall Higgins.
