Tribesmen inflict the coldest revenge following league loss

1990 Galway obliterate Mayo

Having being beaten by Sligo and denying them promotion in the National League the previous November, the Tribesmen roared back in the Connacht championship quarter-final. They dished out a 32-point hammering to their near neighbours to advance to meet Mayo in the last four. Thomas Kilcommins led the way with 2-4 while Val Daly fired over 1-3 as Sligo suffered the loss of two players to injury and one due to a sending off.
