Playing the match in Cork seems a bit far fetched ... especially on a saturday....

That would be madness but I don't think any venues have been decided on yet. It's Galway vs Clare and Dublin vs Antrim......there's no way Cork will be the venue for either of those fixtures.

Apparently it is fixed for Cork. What a joke.

Anyone know what the panel is like this year?

Bad for supporters if it's true the game is fixed for Cork.
On the other hand I'm sure the players will enjoy an outing in the shiny new stadium.

That would require communication. And as everybody knows, Galway GAA do not do communication. It wouldn't take much for them to publish a list of names of those who are in the squad. It would drum up some interest etc. But for Galway GAA that is too big an ask.

Agree & in stark contrast to the Donegal county board chairman Sean Dunnion coming out publically urging Donegal supporters to come out in force & purchase their tickets early for Markievicz Park due to its capacity, not a peep out of Galway.

The minors trained this morning and then travelled to cork to check out the pitch a very long day for the youngsters.

Question Lads
Your under 17 are they made up of lads on minor squad with balance made up of others
OR
Best of Celtic challenge

Reason I ask is your minors take on Kilkenny on August 18th in HQ AT 12.00 your 17s if beating Cork this Saturday are due to play Dublin same day same venue at 12.00 as part of triple bill ??????

They lost the u17 semi to Cork last night.
Pretty sure the lads that played for the minors didn't start.

Sure there was 10 days between the u17 game and the minor game (unlike our u17 footballers who disgracefully had to play the night before the Connacht minor final with 9 or 10 on both panels).
What harm playing 3 or 4 outfield lads. It was an AI semi final in its own right remember - this team doesn't get a chance to play again next year.

just letting u know the reason for our lads not starting I totally agree with u if a 17yr old cant play 2 games in 10 days it shows u way things are gone ive no doubt the lads dying to play that game but jeff lynskey minor manager had them wrapped up in cotton wool for 45mins it was a game we probly would have won if the lads played but another thing is the u17 final fixed for 12 o clock sunday 6th in croker v Dublin we playing cats in minor semi at 2 gaa fixed games and knew there cud be clash for our u17s and minors so that's what croker thought of u17 we wud have to play final without 5 eligible players if we won semi

That makes a mockery of the u17 competition. Both football and hurling.No respect at all for players good enough to play on both panels.
