We named our team a bit earlier on for this evening’s Connacht Minor final against Galway, a match that throws in at Tuam Stadium at 7.30pm. The team we’ve named is unchanged from that which started in last week’s semi-final against Sligo. Here it is:
Mayo (Connacht MFC final v Galway, 5/7/2019): Luke Jennings (Ballinrobe); Alfie Morrison (Louisburgh), Oisín Tunney (Breaffy), Aidan Cosgrove (Kiltimagh); Shaun Dempsey (Balla), Ruairí Keane (Mayo Gaels), Eoin Gilraine (Ballinrobe); Paddy Heneghan (Castlebar Mitchels), Ethan Henry (Mayo Gaels); Ciaran Mylett (Castlebar Mitchels), Ronan Hughes (The Neale), Dylan Thornton (Ballina Stephenites); Paul Walsh (Castlebar Mitchels), Conor Reid (Bohola Moy Davitts), Frank Irwin (Ballina Stephenites).
No doubt this provincial decider will draw a decent crowd to Tuam but, for those – including me – who can’t make it, the news that it’s being streamed live on YouTube, by TG4 in association with Electric Ireland, is very welcome indeed. The link to that live stream is here but I’m also planning to embed the feed directly onto the blog so you should be able to watch it from here as well if that suits.
The lads will be aiming this evening to capture the county’s 40th Connacht Minor title, as well as the first since it shifted to U17. The last year we won this title was back in 2014 so we’re due some provincial success at this level.
Best of luck to Tomás Morley and his young charges in this evening’s final.
