Replying To gbay:  "depending on results tomo of course but if mayo avoid kerry and dublin in the draw you'd have
to fancy them to get to the all ire final now..
they will gather serious momentum from tonight's victory and the still have a few players to
come back from injury which will make there panel stronger..
i thought there bench made a big impact this eve and they will be a very hard
team to beat from now now plus the amount of experience they have grinding out results..

if cork and armagh win tomo then i would be expecting a galway v mayo Q-final...

if both Donegal and limerick win then it would be highly unlikely."
What's the story with repeat games? Are they allowed or not? Not looking for opinion ......... dose anyone know the rule??

People are saying we can't draw Mayo and others are saying there are no restrictions

Replying To MachaireConnacht:  "If Galway draw Clare or winners of Cork-Limerick ye are guaranteed a semi final. I actually think Clare would cause Derry more problems than they would Galway."
Galway should win but guaranteed? Its not so long ago that Tipperary beat Galway in the All-Ireland quarter final.

Roscommon exit yesterday puts some perspective on the Connacht final and Clare almost scored as much as Galway did 2-15 v 2-19.

Answered my own question
https://www.gaa.ie/football/news/all-ireland-sfc-quarter-final-draw-details/

Can't draw Mayo in Q/F. Kerry can't draw Cork. If Donegal win they can't play Derry. So we can get Cork, Clare or winners of Armagh/Donegal.

Didn't Galway beat Kerry for the first time since 1965 in 2018 in Croker? Beating Kerry was not a bad day's work

Delighted for the minors, they are a great bunch of lads. They deserved the result. They've taken a lot of criticism in the past week and some of it unfair when you consider their ages. There is a big number of them underage again to play next year. Many of these lads are back studying tonight for state exams tomorrow.

The 'subtlety' escaped you MeA. When you're explaining you're losing though, as they say.

Absolutely.Much more positive and Mayo the only provincial winners through which goes to show that Connacht Minor was quite strong this year.Delighted for all those young lads.They have put a savage amount if time and effort into it and are only young.

Agreed. They took the criticism thay was deserved and responded brilliantly. Now they deserve all the praise. Especially to beet the dubs who had looked impressive and with huge resources in terms of playing population.

Don't agree, some of the criticism in some quarters was over the top and truthfully not fair on 16/17 and in some cases 15 years old.

Well done to all involved today, a step in the right direction.

Been a rough few weeks for Roscommon alright. Biggest embarrassment since the vote in 2015

No embarrassment in losing to Galway with their fine football tradition or in losing to Clare with their fine hurling tradition. Ros will rise again.

We will have to agree to disagree on that one. Maybe i didnt see all the criticism but what i saw was criticism that was a) not personalised and b) not too insulting (exception being the silly jibe about hairstyles). Once you start to play at elite levels it cant all be about praise and mollycoddling. But regardless of that what a response from the players..and maybe we wouldnt have got the response without some negative feedback. Fair play and lets hope they kick on.

This that an effort to troll the poor Rossies? I don't deal with such childish behaviour.

Well everyone here knows you're from roscommon anyway so we would expect you not to appreciate the comment. But I would assume as most people here would that he was joking!!

So it's Armagh.

What do we think?

Tough draw, but a great chance to go deep in this years championship.

Hardest possible draw for Galway but if ye do win, I would be tipping ye to win that semi final.
