It was announced yesterday that, with the Level 5 restrictions lifted, the Minor football Championship will get going later this month. The competition will spill over into early in the New Year.
The Connacht MFC gets going the weekend after next, with Galway meeting Leitrim in a preliminary round tie on Sunday 12th (throw-in 2pm). The two semi-finals take place the following weekend, with Roscommon meeting the winners of Galway and Leitrim on Friday 18th (throw-in 7.30pm), while we’re set to play Sligo on Sunday 20th (throw-in 2pm). The provincial final is set to be contested on 9th/10th January.
All these matches will be played at the Connacht Centre of Excellence and all of the games will be streamed live by Connacht GAA. Further details on this year’s Connacht MFC are here.

Great that the games are going to be streamed.
Pity the seniors couldn’t get a provincial draw like this!
Great opportunity for them.
Great that these young men will get to play .
I’m not living in Mayo but is it just me or there very little talk about the 2 semifinals this weekend. I live in the Midlands and there is a small bit of talk about how much Cavan will lose by !!
My ball you can hav any complaints about talk of the games here. 4 podcasts I think it is at this point
It’s five episodes, Mayo 36! Number 6 is – the final one in the series – is on its way too and will be online at some point this afternoon.
Hello, Have just listened to a Podcast in which Stephen Rochford talks about Mayo vTipperary and more. DEC 3.
I came across it by chance under Gaelic Games, Irish Examiner and had no problem listening to it on Spotify. Not able to post links.
Oisin NcConville. Ciaran Sheehan, and I think Paul Rouse or somebody is the host.
Stephen Rochford came across very well in every respect.
Hope this is not confusing.
Willie Joe. Any knowledgeable people in the know on here to give us any information on the minor team – squad, captain, main players, style of play. How is the plan to progress the underage going. Who are the main people in each underage set up?
Eoghan Hughes Castlebar Mitchels is one to look out for. He was man of the match in the U18 A final this year against Ballina Stephenites. That was a final which contained several 2019 Mayo minors.
@mayo 36 . Wasn’t a complaint ,just an observation.. Podcasts are brilliant, just think the national media aren’t too excited as they can’t see Dublin being beaten .
Very talented minor team with some very promising forwards such as
Cian mchale(Moy davvits)
Josh Mahon (Ballintubber)
Eoghan hughes(castlebar Mitchell’s)
Conor og dennedy (claremorris)
Niall Treacy (davitts)
Ronan hughes,Sam callinan and Ciaran boland are young enough to be involved with this years minor team they were involved with the minor team last year too Ronan is a forward
Sam is a midfielder
And Ciaran can play anywhere across the back line
Have high hopes for this minor team let’s hope they can go far
@itsonly68.i think Ronan Hughes will be centre back this year. Big strong lad and could do a job there.
Shaun Dempsey from Balla is still underage this year, he started a few games last year.
Thanks mayomessi wasn’t aware of that a very pacy and skilful back looking forward to seeing him do his stuff along side jack niland another promising player
No doubt Ronan could do a job centre half back yeah could be a shout we will see with the team against sligo he has a very good engine and football brain on him
Sam callinan and jack fallon from mayo gaels will likely be the midfield pairing
With Ciaran boland the likely candidate to be the full back
