Poll: Who do you think will win today's football quarter-finals?

Kerry, Galway, Roscommon and Mayo are all in action in Croke Park.

THIS AFTERNOON BRINGS the second of the weekend’s back-to-back Croke Park double headers.

allireqf It's Kerry v Galway, and Roscommon v Mayo.

First up on today’s quarter-final bill sees Munster champions Kerry and beaten Connacht finalists Galway go head-to-head [Throw-in 2pm, live on RTÉ].

Off the back of a convincing win over Donegal last weekend, the Tribesmen will have a spring in their step as they take the road to Croker. The two sides are no strangers to each other at this stage in the campaign, having met in the quarter finals in 2014, 2008 and 2002.

The Kingdom have a much better record though — Galway haven’t beaten them in the championship since the 1965 All-Ireland final.

The second of the two clashes brings an All-Connacht affair between Roscommon and Mayo [Throw-in 4pm, also live on RTÉ].

All eyes will be on the provincial-winning boss Kevin McStay — a Mayo native on the Roscommon sideline. His side haven’t beaten Mayo since 2001.

Mayo enter the fixture with yet another gutsy win over Cork under their belts, and now face their fourth game in five weeks.

It’s all or nothing. Lose and you’re out.

Which to sides will claim the coveted All-Ireland semi-final spots and progress?

Let us know what you think.
