Emlyn Mulligan admits it will be difficult for Leitrim to motivate themselves after they were handed a difficult 2019 Connacht SFC draw.

The Connacht minnows have been paired with old foes Roscommon in the quarter-final, with Mayo - assuming they account for New York - awaiting the winners in the semi-final.

Star forward Mulligan, who has never played at Croke Park, said on RTE: "Four (five) years-in-a-row, we came up against each other and unfortunately for ourselves we came out of it on the wrong side by large margins in recent years.

"It's not the ideal draw to be honest. It will be a huge ask for ourselves and even to get over Roscommon - and Mayo in the semi-final is near impossible to be honest."
