GAA preview: Provincial football finals get underway this weekend

Provincial titles are up for grabs this weekend in the football championship, with Connacht and Munster titles to e decided.

In Connacht, rivals Galway and Mayo battle it out for silverware once again.

Galway will be hoping for revenge as Mayo ended their championship campaign in the preliminary quarter-finals last year. However, Padraig Joyce’s side will know they are lucky to be in Sunday’s final having been pushed all the way by Sligo.

For Mayo, this will be the chance to claim their first provincial title in three years, and in the process, stop Galway from winning their third in-a-row.
