While the main event may have been disappointing, the children of Cumann na mBunscol Mhaigh Eo put on a wonderful exhibition at half time, as well as performing a Guard of Honour to welcome both teams onto the pitch.

Pictured below are the young footballers of Currabaggan NS & The Quay (Back row) and Breaffy NS and Midfield NS (Front row)

Mini 7s Semis and Finals 2015

Football Mini 7s Semis and Finals 2015


Congrats to everyone who has made it to the semi finals of the Mini Sevens. We are going ahead as (re)scheduled on Wednesday 18th in The Connacht Centre of Excellence in Bekan from 11.00

I presume everyone has correct dates of birth at this stage, teams are 7 + 3 subs, no more.

Semi finals will be 8 minutes per half.

Extra time is two halves of 3 minutes each way and if still level then a further period(s) of 3 minutes.

Finals will be 10 minutes per half.

Extra time is two halves of 3 minutes each way and if still level then both teams must make a choice to continue further extra time or replay. If both agree to further extra time that’s ok. If not then it’s a replay! Hopefully none of that will be needed.

This years semi finals rotation has North v West and South v East, as follows:

Girls Semis both at 11.00   The Quay v Snuboro.   Bekan v Kiltimagh

Boys semis both at 11.30   The Quay v Scoil Phadraig.    The Neale v Midfield/Culmore

Girls Final 12:00

Boys Final 12:00

Good luck to everyone !
