  1. Hope there is a big early turn out of supporters to shout the minors on. We should have the advantage with the Senior team in action and I hear its looking good for a huge turnout.
    We can be quite sure that any Tyrone support there will be rooting for Monaghan as all norther teams do, apart from a chance for themselves to get revenge for the Ulster final in the All Ireland.
    Having seen them twice I think they are a good all round team who could well go all the way.

  3. Yeah for crying out loud, any self respecting Mayo supporter that is going to hq , has to go in for minor game. Imagine the lift it will give them young men to hear a good roar now and again and see all the green and red in there.

  4. I don’t know why any true supporters won’t be there early? Monaghan were lucky to win Ulster 7 points down Tyrone went down to 14 men and dodgy penalty won the game for them then again that how Meath won the semi final last year. Great chance for Mayo to have two teams in the All Ireland final i don’t think it’s ever happened before?

  5. C’mon lads, get behind these kids! They deserve it and hopefully, with the 16th man, they will blaze a trail for the seniors! That will signal Mayo’s intent.
    Good luck to yee lads, we’re rootin for yee!

  6. Fascinating how the same families pop up year in year out in Mayo gaa. Cian Hanley is a brother of Pearse, Diarmuid O Connor a brother of Cillian and Stephen Coen a brother of Darren. Just shows footballing ability runs in the blood. Best of luck to the minors, won’t see them on tv here in oz unfortunately, just the senior match but might hopefully see both teams in the flesh come September!

  7. Aussie exile, you an get it if you subscribe to Setanta Sports Channel there. Not sure if they have a streaming option for Oz though.

  8. Lads is the minor game at 1,15 or 1,30? Ticket says 1,15 but maybe they thought people might get in later.

  9. Cheers for that op2misteek I thought I’d heard somewhere they were brothers, Stephen coen is actually a very exciting prospect, saw them play against Roscommon and he was excellent, Conor loftus and tommy conroy and Liam irwin also caught the eye. Bright future!

  10. The GAA website has the minor throw-in down for 1.30pm and the senior match for 3.30pm. Just as well to get in there by 1.15, though, to be well settled in before the minors get going.

  11. There will be 7 from the ‘Haunis togged and seated in the Lower Hogan at 1.20 to cheer the young bucks on. Roll on Sunday.

  12. mayomaningalway, Section 334. Same as for the quarter final. Good enough seats but there are no real bad seats in Croker anymore. Mind you, I do miss the big stanchions of McHale park!!

  13. Well, they probably originated from there but I got them from a good reliable source that, since ’89, has never let me down. If he comes up trumps on one more occasion that will do.

  14.
