We’re absent – yet again, for the fifth time in the last seven years – from Sunday’s Nestor Cup decider but the county’s U17 team have already booked their place in their Connacht final.
This game has, according to this week’s Mayo News (paper and digital variants), now been confirmed for Monday, 6th June with throw-in set for 7.30pm. What’s not known yet is who our Connacht final opponents will be, as Galway and Sligo face off in the semi-final this coming Friday evening.
Whichever of them it is will also dictate the venue for the provincial decider. If it’s Galway then the final will be played at MacHale Park, as our lads travelled to Tuam for their group stage meeting. It’s a Sligo venue – almost certainly Markievicz Park – if it’s the Yeats County, as we played them in Ballina in the round-robin stage.
The game is also set to be broadcast live by TG4.
