A report in today's Indo confirms that there will be an open draw for the first round of the qualifiers, which throws up the strong possibility that some provincial clashes will be repeated on July 7th. Such rematches are, by virtue of the numbers, most likely to involve Ulster or Leinster counties but, were Leitrim to pull off a shock win over Galway on Sunday week, we might not be immune from getting drawn into such jolly goings-on ourselves. Oh yes, Galway v Mayo back in Salthill on July 7th - wouldn't that just be the mongrel's testicles? What - not to your liking? Me neither: I've no intention of going near there until they get some drinkable water flowing again.
By the way, the same report says that the qualifier draw will take place on Sunday week (June 24th), after the Galway/Leitrim game finishes, so we'll have two weeks to prepare for whoever we get matched with.
