“Mini 7s Glory for Ballyvary and Newport” – Report by Austin Garvin of @MayoNewsSport

INTO/Cumann na mBunscol Mini 7s County Finals

Glory for Ballyvary and Newport

Austin Garvin – The Mayo News

There was success for Ballyvary National School for the first time ever in the Boys final and for Newport NS in the girls decider when the Cumann na mBunscol finals were decided at the Connacht GAA Centre on Friday last.

As usual both finals produced some thrilling fare, with the boy’s decider in particular serving up arguably one of the best games in the competition for many a long day.

Ballyvary National School 3-7

The Quay, Ballina 3-3

This was a game for the ages! What a privilege to be in attendance at what must rate as one of the best finals to grace this competition.

The standard of play was such that one wanted it to go on indefinitely.

From start to finish the pace was unrelenting with both sides’ producing some magnificent football. It was so good that one seasoned spectator on arriving late enquired if the teams were post-primary school students, rather than national school pupils.

Both sides must be complimented for their command of the latent skills of the game; certainly on the basis of what unfolded here the future of the game is secure in the county well into the future.

Competition specialists the Quay started with all guns blazing and looked as if they were going to win pulling up.

Goals from Paraic Gavin, Mikey Cadden and Peter Barrett gave them a great start. A point from Colm Lynch was Ballyvary’s sole reply.

As the game evolved, Ballyvary found a way to prevent the dangerous Ballina forwards from penetrating their close-knit defence.

During the ensuing play, the winners’ played some thrilling football culminating in them scoring 3-4 to a single point.

Team captain Colm Keaveney scored two goals, with Colm Lynch adding the other. Keaveney landed two points, with Seán McGee and Jack Morley adding one apiece.

Livewire Tiernan Tighe raised a white flag for the losing side just before the break.

Ballyvary lead at half time by 3-5 to 3-2

The pace never flagged in the second period, with both defences giving an exhibition of defending at its best. This was the main reason the scores dried up to a large extent, rather than any falling off in the standard of forward play.

The likes of Jack Morley (son of Mayo u-17 manager Tomás) and Rory- Lowe Walsh were terrific in deploying last-ditch blocks to deny a dangerous Ballina side scores.

Considering the quality of the forward talent on view, the teams could only muster three points between them during the half.

Colm Keaveney kicked one for the winners’, with Jack Morley supplying the other.

Seán Fitzpatrick sauntered forward to register Ballina’s final score of an enthralling contest.

Despite an almighty effort from a talented Ballina side, Ballyvary held on for their first ever title at this level.

In keeping with the sporting nature of the game, the Ballina mentors were the first to congratulate them.

Speaking to the Mayo News afterwards, Ballyvary joint-manager John Cloherty felt that overall balance was the determining factor in deciding the destination of the title.

Mr Danny Charlton, PRO of Cumann na mBunscol, presented the trophy to Cathal Keaveney, captain of the Ballyvary team.

Newport National School 6-7

Gaelscoil Uileog de Búrca 2-3

From a very early stage of this final it became obvious that Newport carried too much firepower for a gallant Gaelscoil Uileog de Búrca side.

They were better-balanced and scored goals at vital stages of a decider that produced some fine football.

The losing side are very young, with many of them eligible for the competition next season, and for that reason they shouldn’t be disappointed to lose out to an above average Newport side.

Newport was very well-schooled and had no apparent weaknesses. Collectively and individually, they possessed a thorough knowledge of the fundamentals of the game. Their ability to eke out scores quite easily marked them out as worthy-winners of the coveted title.

They started impressively, with one of their outstanding performers Aba Palasz hitting the net in the opening minutes.

Ellie Nic Uidhir replied with two minors for the Claremorris School. For a while it looked as if the vanquished side would offer stiff resistance. However, as the play progressed, the class of the winners’ surfaced.

Hannah Sheehy notched another goal after Aba Palasz delivered a lovely pass to her.

Sheehy, Aoibhean Chambers (0-2), and Aba Kelly added points, to leave Newport ahead by 2-4 to 0-2 at half-time.

It could have been more but for the excellence of the Gael Scoil goalkeeper Naoise Ní Ifearnáin.

The game practically ended as a contest in the opening minutes of the new half when Aoibhean Chambers and Hannah Sheehy raised green flags for a Newport team that showcased their vast repertoire of skills.

The losing side remained competitive with Ashling Ní Choimín drawing a great save from Elana Chambers in the Newport goal.

Aba Palasz scored two further goals for the rampant winners together with two minors. Team captain Aba Kelly also pointed a free to leave them out of reach.

Just before the end, Ashling Ní Choimín and Sienna Ní Cheallaigh scored goals for the losing side to put a more respectable look on the scoreboard.

Aba Kelly, captain of the winning team accepted the cup on behalf of the winning team.

*Note on County Finals*  

Due to adverse weather conditions and the demand for McHale Park, county final dates have yet to be confirmed. We have requested three days to run our finals and a fourth day to run our Small Schools’ Day. We are hoping to hear from the County Board in the next few weeks with confirmation of dates providing the main pitch is made available to us. We feel it is very important that as many children as possible play on our county pitch. For the past few years our finals have taken place on Mondays in the last two weeks in May and first Tuesday/second Monday in June. If you feel that you might be involved then it might be a good idea to avoid these dates when booking school tours. As soon as dates are confirmed we will inform you all.

 

Division 6 , small schools blitz TBC (Mid June)

Divisions1,1B 4& 5 are pretty much the same as last year and can be ran off the same way. We have a change to Division 2B. Second placed teams will progress from each group into the B competition. Teams that win Div 1/1B and Div 2/2B are excluded from entering the B competitions the following year. The B competitions are to encourage weaker teams and give more schools an opportunity to play in a county semi-final / final . There is a separate attachment to this email for D2teams with a format that hopefully will work. Division 3 has been divided into 4 groups with the winner from each qualifying for county semi-finals. There are six weeks left until county semis, so that should leave ample time for all fixtures to be played. If I have someone in a wrong division or have left somebody out or you want a change, please get in touch with either myself or James. Best of luck everyone.

 Here are just a few of the basic rules that apply across all division

  • Mouthguards/Gumshields are mandatory. No gumshields, no game.
  • Neutral referees as far as possible. A list of referees for all areas can be found on the official Mayo GAA website.
  • Two movements of the ball allowed with all frees/sidelines/45’s/kickouts from the hand.
  • Score difference is never to be used in determining results or groups. There is nothing to be gained in racking up big scores against weaker opposition. It goes against all we are trying to promote. Give respect, get respect.
