It's interesting when you see that Mayo schools have been doing quite well in recent years but it doesn't seem to be translating into underage. Galway hasn'ti even had a school in the Connacht colleges final since 2013. Our own schools haven't been doing much at all but the schools game doesn't seem to have the importance it once did.

I donít think schools football bears much relation to county success at all. The year CBS got to the A final we lost to Sligo in Kiltoom. Itís a bit like Cross winning club AIs and expecting Armagh to challenge for IC titles as a result.

Well you'd hardly expect lads doing their leaving to be the linchpin of the county senior team...

Just seen the Roscommon Mayo minor highlights . Jesus the Mayo backs look a shambles . Galway must be a fair team though to beat the Rossies by such a big margin .

Do Galway play the winners of Sligo/Roscommon?

Don't think it's quite that simple Maroon Manc.....Mayo and Leitrim still in it with it being round robin.

My fault for not stating I meant the 20's?

Yes Galway play the winner of Sligo or Roscommon in the U20 semi final.
