Ahh now. Two very good teams??? That's stretching it a bit. One without a shed load of players through injuries and the other that won't leave their own half.
For me it's mayo despite the amount of injuries, until Galway actually come up and go man to man , which is a pity as I have a soft spot for Galway (always have had) but their current way of playing is doing them no favors at all . Hopefully they will be allowed to take the shackles off and go for it. If they do they win. But I don't think management will allow that. Pity. But here's hoping

Been to watch Mayo play twice in Limerick, 2 very enjoyable games for a neutral. Definitely not missing this.
25 euro to watch Mayo in the qualifiers is a bargain, most of there games are priceless. Thats not meant as an insult just great entertainment.

Any word on Lee Keegan yet. He looked banjaxed as he was helped off. He'll hardly be playing at the weekend but will he be back at all this year?

Replying To KY4SAM2015:  "Bit unfair on Galway having to play this game in Limerick with Mayo having playing there a few times in the last few years. Almost their second home ground!"
True...A friend of mine in Limerick is happy anyway...the local economy gets a boost whenever Mayo roll into town. Unlike Da Kerry folk he reckons who still eat hang sandwiches and flasks of tea from da boot....;) Up Mayo

you embarrass Meath everytime you post on the HS.
You kicked 4 points against Dublin, you just about got over Offaly in Navan and were lucky againt Laois.
Id pipe down if i were you.

Replying To Belclare:  "I wonder who said no first?"
Guarantee it was Mayo, the same crowd who agreed to play Kerry in the neutral venue of Limerick in 2014 (Kerry to Limerick around 2 hrs from some part, Mayo to Limerick 3-4 hrs).
Another issue is the prize for whoever wins, a trip to Killarney to play Kerry the following week, that means either Galway or Mayo supporters have to travel down that same road again twice in a week, co boards not thinking of their supporters, local businesses or sponsors, be hard to ask a business for sponsorship next year after sticking up their 2 fingers to your business last year by refusing the 50/50 chance of a massive match in your town

Cant wait to host You in the wonderful city of Limerick Kathy. Irelands 3rd biggest and in my view most beautiful city.

Should be a very competitive game

Galway currently have Mayo's number but it's not been the best year so far for Galway

Mayo's injuries, very unlucky and if they had a couple of them boys I'd fancy them

They'll be sweating on Keegan, I'd expect to see COC start, they need him.

Wouldn't rule him out just yet if it's a sprain but highly unlikely he will play.

How would he know anything about the kerry folk, when we met Mayo and all the complaining with the fixture fixed for Limerick I think we had played there once in 9 years but justice prevailed in the end with a Kerry win so all was good -)

Hopefully Mayo do win though as would make for a better game in Killarney then it would if Galway got through, should be a cracker anyway on Saturday.

For anyone planning to spent a bit of time in the city on match day the 2 famous eateries are Dinkeys for the fish and chips or chicken hut which does a gravy that puts KFC to shame and is even better than that spot in Cork that they love down there.

And if you are after a pint do visit Tom Collins. Its not a GAA pub but it is possibly the nicest little pub ive ever been to in the world

Honorable mention too for JJ Bowles and Curraghgower by the river and on your route back to town, Mother Macs for craft beer or Nancys for a late one. And dont shy away from the dark dingy pubs as Limerick is full of hidden gems

I'll never understand the obsession in Limerick with that take away gravy! Gravy for me is what comes with the Sunday roast, the Limerick version is just awful!
