Minor final fixed for Hyde Park on Friday week

It’s taken a while for it to be confirmed but Mayo GAA announced a short while ago that this year’s All-Ireland Minor football Championship final will take place at Dr Hyde Park, Roscommon, on Friday week, 8th July.

The weekend’s matches

Yet another football weekend is careering in our direction, another one in which Mayo has plenty of skin in the game. More than most weekends, in fact.
