Galway manager Kevin Walsh was left to rue his side's abject second half performance as they surrendered their Connacht SFC title to Roscommon.

Leading by five points at half-time, the Tribesmen only added two more in the second period as Roscommon stormed back to take the Nestor Cup on a 1-13 to 0-12 scoreline.

"The second half we just didn’t seem to get our hands on the ball. We turned over the ball maybe two or three times at the start of the second half, when we were attacking, and the next 20 minutes we didn’t seem to get our hands on the ball," Walsh told RTE.

"One thing for sure is it wasn’t a consistent performance."

The two-time All-Ireland winning midfielder welcomed the fact that Galway will have three weeks to dust themselves down and get ready for the fourth round of the All-Ireland SFC qualifiers.

"It’s never easy," he continued.

"It’s three weeks now. We've club football next weekend as well here, so we’ve two weeks after that and we’ll have to see who comes in the draw.  

"But at this moment it’s raw, and there’s no point in saying too much about that. But certainly after a week is over and they get the club out of the way, lads I'd be hoping will be ready to come back and try and put this right."
