No league this year. It was actually done away with when they moved the minor championship to be a group series.
One of the Mayo teams won the Ted Webb u16 last year.

Looks like between Mayo or Galway for this title again but I wouldn't rule out Sligo who played a few matches in the Ulster minor league in the spring drawing with Donegal in one game. Sligo for the second year in succession won the U16 Fr Manning Cup.

Leitrim are the weakest team. Roscommon are much like last year, on their day can pull off a shock win but unlikely to win this provincial title.

Have the panels being training for this or what? I had given up hope for this to be played.
