I would imagine Galway will be without several players who are on the minor squad that play the Connacht final against Sligo the next day.
3 u17s started against the Mayo minors and 2 more came off the bench. I think there may be a few more on the squad also not 100% sure.

Open to correction. 3 starters Sean Fitzgerald,Jack Glynn,Brain Harlowe and Subs brought on Mattew Tierney,Conor Walsh? it wouldn't have taken much of an effort to push this U17 final back one week but then again the Connacht GAA rarely use common sense. I also feel this U17 final should have been played in Tuam or Hyde park.
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Is there an All Ireland U17 this year or is it just confined to Provinces?
Agree these lads should have got their day out in a Stadium rather than Prenty's Project.

They don't call it the All-Ireland championship for no reason..

AI semi finals in August. Galway or Roscommon will take on Kerry.

I think so yeah. The first three have been named in the Galway minor team for Sunday anyway.

Ros 2-04 Galway 1-04 HT.

Galway's goal came immediately after our second.

Ros 2-08 Galway 1-08 FT.

Handier than even the scoreline suggests, Galway hit two points right after the break and then it was pretty much all Ros.

Great work lads, first ever Connacht U17 champions makes for a good day's work.

Fantastic result for the young rossies, that puts paid to the clean sweep at underage for the choakers, now lets do a little bit more damage tomorrow.

Congrats to Roscommon. Galway obviously missing a number of their better players who are already on the minor team and panel for Sunday. Can't be helped though in this transition year.

This team beat the Galway County team handy last year and only lost to the City-West side by five in the Ted Webb despite having had a Fr. Manning game two days previous, so it's questionable how close Galway would have been whoever they picked. We're also missing our star forward from last year who thankfully was along with the panel this afternoon, albeit on crutches.

The gap was as significant between the sides as it was on the very good days for us at underage in years past. Great to see that, despite the penny-pinching, talent and good management still can win out. Food for thought for the jackasses that scuttled this year's minor and U21 teams before they even got a chance.

Best wishes to James Larkin from St. Kevin's who suffered a concussion and had to be rushed to Mayo General after the match.

Surely this could have been played on another weekend? Did any of the minors who were involved yesterday play for the 17's?

I think a couple of the minor subs played but those already on the minor team itself and a couple others did not.
