The spotlight is on Gaelic football this weekend as all roads lead to Ruislip for London GAA versus defending champions Galway in the Connacht Football Senior Championship quarter-finals.

The Connacht Football Senior Championship is an annual knockout competition featuring the senior county teams of Connacht GAA.  All five counties take part – Galway, Leitrim, Mayo, Roscommon and Sligo – along with London and New York.  The winners and runners-up progress directly to the All-Ireland Group Stage.

Galway are the current holders.  They defeated Sligo in last year’s final, successfully defending the title they won in 2022 against Roscommon.

The winners of today’s quarter-final between London and Galway will meet the winners of Sligo and Leitrim in the last four.  The semi-final is on Saturday 20 April.
