Mayo Claim U16 Progress to Success Title 2017
Mayo have claimed the U16 ‘Progress to Success’ National title for 2017.  The teams in this competition have participated in round robin blitz and also knock-out championship games since the beginning of March with many of the games being competitive.
The players and management of all teams involved have shown great commitment to this competition and the pairing of Mayo and Wicklow pitted the two best teams in the competition against each other in the final. Huge thanks also to Louth, Monaghan and Donegal for participating in this year’s programme.
Mayo where crowned champions after a hard-fought game in Longford slasher against Wicklow. Wicklow started brightly with a well taken goal early on. However, this seemed to spark Mayo into action and they started to drive at Wicklow and got a goal of their own soon after. Half time score was Mayo 2.04 to Wicklow 2.01.
Defenders were on top in the second half for both teams with Mayo taking 2 points and Wicklow scoring a further 3 points.  Wicklow pushed hard for a goal however Mayo held out for a deserved victory on a scoreline of 2.3 to 2.6 to become U16 Progress to Success Champions for 2017.

Munster Minor Blitz
Saturday 26th August saw the first Munster Minor 7 a side Blitz of the year take place at Mallow GAA complex.
4 teams from Kerry, Clare and Limerick all took part in the blitz, which was aimed specifically at increasing the amount of game time for players at that age group. 
A lovely sunny day saw plenty of matches played, and a big thank you to referee Alec Morrissey for looking after proceedings. A big thank you to Mallow GAA for use of their facilities.
