I’m really looking forward to seeing our minors in action again on Sunday. There’s a couple of very promising young players on this team that we could see donning the red and green jersey at senior level in a couple of years. Hopefully the experience of Tuam will stand to them and will ensure a much better opening 25mins this time around. Roscommon will be a very tough nut to crack I’m sure so best of luck to our lads on Sunday. Hopefully the home supporters will be in early to cheer them on.
Still no Seamus Cunniffe either on the team or in the subs. Somebody said on this site said recently that he had “rejoined” the panel. While it is still possible that he will be available on Sunday can anybody throw any light on the situation. With his experience from last year he would be a huge asset and his form seems to be ok as he is playing Senior for Ballaghaderreen.
Best of luck to the Mayo minors, fair play to them in the semi-final game against Galway, they never gave up and kept plugging away. They don’t let any set-backs get them down, that’s a sign of a very well managed team.
Seamus Cunniffe only made himself available for panel in last few weeks due to injuries
Seamus Cunniffe starting at full back tomorrow
Thanks for the info Ross.
By the way sins can be forgiven “with a firm purpose of amendment” as the Catechism used say. We will all pray for you.
Good luck lads!
Big day ahead of us and the lads.Not nervous. I do believe we will come out on top. Bring on the Tribesmen and good luck to both our minor and senior lads cant wait to get to Castlebar.
