Minor team named

Graphic: @MayoGAA

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.

  1. Its disappointing that we haven’t won a minor since 2014 so hopefully we get over the line tonight.

    I believe the new format however has taken some of the status from the minor comp i.e. that it is no longer played directly before the senior final. That provided the minor final with a greater profile and sense of occasion for the players. I’d like to see this revisited.

  2. Fair play for the live stream link Willie Joe!!…hope the minors set the tone for the week ahead.

  3. Wow! The TG4 commentators are very pro-Galway! Tá Gaeilge i Maigh Eo freisin, lads!

    Also that rossie ref two VERY soft frees to Galway just before HT.

    Galway started the game very brightly but from midway Mayo took over and kicked some very good scores. Some decent players there.
