Area 6 – South Mayo Mini 7s Report


The annual South Mayo Mini 7s football competition was held in Kilmaine Community Grounds on Thursday, November 7th. Despite the challenging weather conditions fourteen schools in total were represented on the day. The number of girls’ teams was particularly high this year – maith sibh, a chailíní! The standard of Gaelic football on view once again was very high – thanks in no small measure to the good coaching work being done in our schools.

Well done to the girls from Kilmaine N.S. and to The Neale N.S. boys who emerged victorious in the end. These teams will compete against the winners of the Claremorris area competition in February 2014.

Many thanks to all who participated in this year’s Mini 7s and to everyone who helped out on the day, especially our referees Ger Canny and Martin Costello. Míle buíochas daoibh uilig go léir!
