The draws for next round of All-Ireland club football

What a time of the year this is.

There's nothing like club GAA and if you were watching the Galway county final you know all about it.

The reigning All-Ireland champions Corofin looked dead and buried, only to just come out alive, summoning iron will and nerves of steel right at the death.

Listen to the crowd shriek, watch the mentors celebrate while the Mountbellew-Moylough lads nearly break down at the same time.

The margins they are fine and there were thrills and spills like this all over. St Finbarr's won in Cork after losing their last seven county finals. Victory doesn't get much sweeter than that.

But the best thing about it all is, there's loads more to come as the November weekends roll around.

Most county championships have been resolved now and we take a look at the draws for the next round of the provincial championships.
