Congrats to Sligo on a first Connacht minor title since 1968! Would love to see them go all the way now and win the all-Ireland.

Sligo Connaught Minor Champions


I havent read the report, but isnt it wonderful for Sligo football...over 50 years or so since the last won (53 I think to be exact)...great win and days like this make knock out footbal worth it (being a final in this case too), while I know they dont happen too often...Well done and a great lift to the county.

Congratulations Sligo, as a Dub living in Sligo for 42 years and working in Roscommon I'll get a bit of mileage out of this at work in Roscommon on Monday morning
Best of luck to Rossie U20s tomorrow.

It's been a very good year results-wise so far in both minor and U20 football, across most provinces. We'll have an Offaly vs Roscommon/Down U20 final and a minor final without Kerry, Dublin, Galway, Mayo or Tyrone.
Of course I'll always want Galway to win, but I'm delighted to see Sligo get a provincial title. The very best of luck to them in the semi-final.

Well done sligo. Super performance, playing lovely football and putting up a big score. And sure who who knows, a final versus Cork and revenge for 68.......

Well done Sligo indeed but I think you'll find Tyrone minors are still in with a shout of reaching an AI final.

If Sligo or Meath were to get to the final and eitheir win the title outright it would be significant. No leinster team has reached All Ireland minor final in 9 years since 2012 when Meath played Dublin in 2012 All Ireland minor final. And in last 21 years since 2000 only 2 leinster teams have won minor All Ireland title with Laois in 2003 and Dublin in 2012. In last 21 years since 2000 only 3 Connacht teams have won minor All Ireland title with Roscommon in 2006, Galway in 2007 and Mayo in 2014. Munster and Ulster teams have won 15 out of the last 20 minor All Ireland titles.

Super win and performance from Sligo and heartiest congratulations and please God , they go all the way now - they have the capability. No complaints from us Rossies, we had great hopes after beating Mayo and Galway but were blown away by Sligo. This is no flash in the pan as Sligo under age has been very competitive for last 5 years due to the work that is being put in at those grades. Their immediate goal is to displace us as no. 3 in Connacht and that can only be good for Connacht football and make it more competitive than it is. Connacht titles at all levels are well earned these days.
