Leitrim v Roscommon.

Keith Beirne and Paddy Maguire tackle Roscommon's Diarmuid Murtagh.

There will be new faces manning the managerial row but it is the same old feeling again for Leitrim fans as the Green & Gold have been drawn to face Roscommon for the fourth year in a row in the Connacht Senior Football Championship.

In the draws made this evening on RTE Television, Terry Hyland will get the chance to learn when the Leitrim and Roscommon rivalry is all about after the neighbours were drawn to face each other in the Quarter-Finals.

The winners of that game, due to be play in Dr Hyde Park Roscommon, will then take on the winners of New York and Mayo in the semi-finals with London playing Galway in the other quarter-final, the winners facing Sligo in the semi-finals.

It is a draw that will both excite and disappoint Leitrim fans but with Roscommon undergoing a transition with a new manager facing into a tough Division 1 campaign, perhaps the arrival of Hyland can spark a major Leitrim improvement.
