The 2021 Connacht SFC final will take place in GAA Headquarters at Croke Park next weekend. In a year in which nothing seems unusual or out of place, all roads will lead to the capital for the loyal supporters of Mayo and Galway next Sunday for what promises to be an engaging encounter.
In 2020, the world-famous Foxford Woollen Mills created a set of county throws to help those who were away from home to feel a little closer. Foxford were honoured to see so many people gift these throws to their much-missed loved ones. Having a tangible piece of home to hold onto made being away from it in such a strange and frightening time more bearable, and brought a sense of comfort and warmth.
To mark the occasion as the two tribes go to war again next Sunday, Foxford have relaunched their Mayo and Galway-themed throws. The stylish and comfortable throws are perfect for a car-boot picnic on the road to Croker, reminiscent of so many past journeys up from the West to watch our county heroes take the field.
Next Sunday, jerseys will be washed and hung to dry and pitches will be quiet as we wait for and watch those much longed-for 70 minutes of sport.
