Connacht Senior Football Semi-Final Preview – Galway out to keep their good record going against Roscommon

Galway face Roscommon this Sunday in the Connacht Senior Football Semi-Final at Hyde Park looking to keep their good record going in the provincial competition.

The teams have met on 24 occasions since 1980 with Galway winning 14 of them to Roscommon’s 7 and 3 draws.

ironically, Roscommon’s record over Galway in Hyde Park is not good either. Their last win over the Tribesmen in the championship came in 1990 in the Connacht Final when they won by two points.

Roscommon come into the game off the back of a big win over Mayo while Galway’s last game was their league final defeat.
