Recap

The 1999 Connacht GAA Senior Football Championship was fairly predictable with Mayo, Roscommon and Galway winning through the First Round as expected versus New York, Leitrim and London respectively. Mayo had over double the score of Roscommon in Castlebar in the Semi-Finals (0-21 to 0-10) while Sligo put three goals past Galway in the other Semi-Final, but Galway still managed a draw before winning the replay by a wide margin in Tuam. The Final, also in Tuam was a closer affair than any match previously bar the Semi-Final draw, with Mayo winning out 1-14 to 1-10 to go on to the All-Ireland Semi-Finals. [References: 2]
