All-Ireland Football quarter-finals

The surprise of the championship happened at Pearse Stadium yesterday as Roscommon won the Connacht title by beating Galway by nine points, this means that Galway will now play Donegal in the next round of qualifiers and Mayo will play Cork who got hammered by Kerry last weekend.

On the other side of the qualifiers Tipperary play Antrim and Monaghan looked to have got the easiest tie when they face division four side Carlow.  So what does all this mean in the All-Ireland quarter and semi-finals
