Judging By Today's Scenes, Croke Park Is In For A Rossie Invasion

Judging By Today's Scenes, Croke Park Is In For A Rossie Invasion
By Daniel Kelly

It's not often Roscommon get to an All-Ireland quarter-final. When they do, the fans get excited.

This weekend's game against Mayo will be the fourth time the Rossies have reached the last-eight since 2001. They have not reached the semi-finals in over a quarter of a century.

With the Connacht Championship in their back pockets, and a local derby in Croke Park, excitement around the country is as high as it's been in recent memory.

Tickets for Sunday's game went on sale on Tuesday morning in the Roscommon County Board offices. Despite its location on the outskirts of Roscommon town, the queue was massive as fans waited to buy those golden tickets.

Despite going on sale at 10am, there was queues out the door at the Racecourse Road offices throughout the day as the countdown continues to 4pm on Sunday.

Win, lose or draw on Sunday afternoon, Croke Park will be decked out in primrose and blue.
