Big win for Tyrone over Cavan this afternoon in the Ulster final. Final score was 3-15 to 0-06. I think there were 10 different scorers.

What's the story in the AI series? Does it follow the senior structure i.e. Tyrone due to play the Leinster reps in the Semi?

Galway beat Mayo 2-7 to 0-5 today.

Report from the ConnachtGAA.ie website

Galway advanced to the final of the Connacht U17 Championship against either Leitrim or Roscommon after overcoming Mayo 2-7 to 0-5 in terrible conditions in Salthill on Sunday. In fairness to both teams, the swirling wind and driving rain made football almost impossible, but neither lacked for endeavour and this Galway team has some quality forwards, with Matthew Tierney and the mercurial Oisín McDonagh in particular catching the eye.

Both teams struggled massively to come to terms with the elements in the early stages, with Leo Howard playing an effective role as the sweeper and Jack Higgins excelling for Mayo, as he did throughout. Mayo played into the gale in the first period, and led two points to nil through two frees from captain Pat Lambert before Galway finally got off the mark with two rapid points in the 21st minute from Tierney and McDonagh. The half time score was 0-4 to 0-3, the game delicately poised and Galway looking like they were up against it facing into the wind for the second half.

However, goals win games and the second half was barely a minute old when wing forward Aidan Halloran ghosted into space infront of Jamie McNicholas’ goal and was expertly found by McDonagh before coolly slotting the ball under the advancing goalie. McDonagh then goaled himself in the 16th minute of the second half after a clever Keelan Craven pass to make the score 2-5 to 0-4 and Mayo with a mountain to climb. Try as they did the Mayo men just couldn’t convert the chances they created and when Joe Gubbins made a super save from corner forward Paul Towey with ten minutes to go, you sensed that it was going to be Galway’s day. McDonagh sealed the Tribesmen’s victory with an outrageous curling score off his left foot from the left wing into the wind after jinking past two defenders in injury time, setting up a showdown for Galway on Connacht final day with Leitrim or Roscommon on the 9th of July.

Mayo: J McNicholas; J Coyne, B McLeod, J Higgins; L Howard, R Brickenden, A McDonnell; P Golderick, J Gallagher (0-1); P Lambert (0-3fs), E Rowley, L Burke; J Jennings (0-1f), T Morris, P Towey Subs: M Moran for Rowley (37 mins), C Golden for Goldrick (42 mins), K Callaghan for Morris (47 mins), C Gavin for Burke and A McHale for Gallagher (53 mins)

Galway: J Gubbins; C O’Neill, S Fitzgerald, T Considine; C Monahan (0-1), J Glynn, M Boyle; C Walsh, J Keady; O Moran, M Tierney (0-2), A Halloran (1-0); K Craven, O McDonagh (1-3), B Harlow (0-1) Subs: O Gormally for Craven (55 mins) P Kelly for Keady (58 mins) J Kirrane for O’Neill (60 mins)
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

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).
