This year’s All-Ireland Minor football Championship final between Mayo and Galway has, as you know, been fixed for Dr Hyde Park, Roscommon, on Friday 8th July at 7.15pm.
Playing the All-Ireland decider at an easily accessible venue within the province should mean there’s a bumper crowd there for it. Proper order too – these are two fine teams, our bucks are the Connacht champions, unbeaten after seven matches in this competition, while the young Tribesmen recovered from a Connacht final defeat to us to take out Leinster champions Dublin followed by Derry to reach the Markham Cup decider.
Tickets for the final went on sale earlier on today. General admission to the ground costs just €15 with free admission for U16s, for whom no ticket is required. For an All-Ireland final, that’s seriously good value, not least in these inflationary times.
Even the weather looks like it’s going to play ball, with the Azores high expected to move up over the country from the middle of next week. This raises the prospect of it being a perfect evening for football so it has the makings of a quite a special occasion.
While the Galway folk still have a bit more shouting to be doing this year, Friday week is, bar the women footballers, our last inter-county outing of 2022. That’s good enough reason for Mayo supporters to come out in force to shout for the Minors but, more to the point, as I saw for myself at O’Connor Park in Tullamore last Saturday, they’re a great bunch of lads, who deserve the county’s full support.
So, what are waiting for? Get your ticket for the final NOW – you can do this here. Tickets are also available for purchase from selected SuperValu and Centra outlets.
We’ll have a Minor final preview episode of the podcast online early next week, that’ll be available to club members on Patreon. Join the club here.

Looking forward to the game and indeed its great to have an all Ireland minor final to look forward to. No pressure or expectation should be put on these lads they are under 17 at the end of the day they should enjoy it. The greatest footballer to come out of Mayo in modern times Lee Keegan didnt even play minor so not everything hinges on it
Fantastic. Great to be in an All Ireland. A win on Friday week could really help recruit a top manager/first choice for the senior role even though it will be a few year before these lads come through. Up Mayo!!
Excuse me while I go outside and howl at the moon due to the utter uselessness of Ticketmaster. How in the name of God do they manage to sell tickets online for anything?

Great value. if it was on before one of the senior semi finals that weekend it would be €50 and if on before the senior final €90 plus Mayo would only get 3k in the ticket allocation.
Willie Joe. You need to use a new e-mail and to register a new account. Eventually I gave and have one for ticketmaster.ie account and a new e-mail for a new ticketmaster.com/gaa account. Less than ideal but I git used to it. Doesn’t seem to be anyone from the GAA monitoring the standard of service offered. Early in the league juvenile tickets for Kildare in Carrick were free, but on the day stewards were looking for €5 juvenile tickets, probably so they could track the numbers attending in a small ground. That’s not Ticketmaster’s mistake. That’s the GAA’s giving the ticket sales deal to Ticketmaster but not seeing if it’s been run well or badly. Maybe tickets.ie were better for customers but not as cosy a deal for GAA.
I agree WJ .
I normally go to Super Value and get them.Few tkmes though they were offline too when i went.Its just nice to go and get an old fashioned ticket and have it in your pocket
Ticketmaster, banks, telecoms, utilities……
I had a 2hr 48 minute call with my bank on Monday morning.
Just when I was reaching the homicidal stage a lovely lady from a very far off place helped.
Ticketmaster were no better just before the Monaghan game. They didn’t recognise my device!! Customer service me arse.
Niall Cullen from Fermanagh is the ref for Friday’s All-Ireland Minor final.
Willie Joe, can an u16 just turn up without a ticket?
I believe so, Brian – that’s what they’ve said in any case.
