No North mayo reps on an underage team again, have North mayo clubs gone back that much or was it a manager/selection thing? I thought knockmore beat Westport in an U17 league final recently? Or was that something else?

What's the story with the Leinster u17 championship? Is it over yet? Who are the strong teams, is imagine Dublin are favourites.

Seems to be a good idea running it in late June/July so there's not too long a gap until the semi-finals although there's only 4 days between the semi and the final. Also includes a backdoor for 1st round losers.

Minor Connacht final will be played on 9th July before the senior final. U17 final is being played on Saturday the 8th July.

Playing these games so early is absolutely spectator hostile. All because they want to play extra-time there and then and run the competition off as fast as possible. They need to either put them on at a normal time before senior matches or only play them separately. They've managed to combine the worst of all worlds here.

I see the Connacht u17 final is fixed for the night before the Connacht minor final.
Galway and Ros will be playing in that u17 final and at least one of their minor sides will be in action the following day in the minor Connacht final.
Surely to God they can plan it a small bit better than that ffs.
Whichever team wins the minor semi will have lads that are also on the u17 panel.
It's unfair on those lads to potentially miss out on an u17 Connacht final.
What are they thinking with that sort of planning?

I'll tell you what's unfair. Galway dragging the Roscommon minor team to Salthill on a midweek evening next week for the minor semi-final. Why not Tuam? I thought Galway were a bit better than the stroke politics Mayo pulls..

Far bigger f**k up than going to Bekan for the U17 final.

Roscommon never played a Connacht underage game in Kiltoom with Leinster in view?

No floodlights at the Hyde. Any match that can be played in natural light has been in the Hyde.

It's the Herrins' home fixture they can choose the venue.
Total bolx for us but c'est le vie ( apologies for lack of Francais).

I see Darragh Canavan was in both the minor and U17s team for Tyrone.
Are there many others in that boat?

Antoin Fox from Loughmacrory played in full back line for both the minors and u17. Pretty sure there are a few more.

Ros should bring them to Boyle or Strokestown the next time, shows no respect for working people who would wish to see the game, bringing them out to Salthill into galway evening traffic and getting home late with work the next day, its just f.. the rossie gaa supporter.
