12:45pm Teams for minor match
We have live score commentary from the traditional curtain raiser for the All Ireland Senior final sees Mayo minors take on Tyrone in a repeat on this years senior semi final, throw in at 1:15pm
The young men from Mayo will have the support of a huge crowd there to cheer on the senior team but Tyrone boss Mick Donnelly reckons that his may work against the Mayo team adding pressure in what is the biggest day in these young players lives.
Tyrone have had a tough route to Croke Park today and will be hoping that this will add steel to their resolve to walk away as winners today. The 8 times minor champions, the last in 2010, lost their Ulster final to Monaghan before prevailing in extra time against Kerry. Tyrone then saw off the challenge of Roscommon in a close fought semi final.
Mayo will be seeking their 7th minor title and their first since 1985 and had their toughest test against Galway in the Connacht semi final before they saw off Roscommon. Westmeath and Monaghan were easily dealt with setting up today’s game against the Red Hand county.
Mayo will start today as favourites, Boylesports have them at 4/9 to win, and will be hoping to show the way for the senior team to make it an historic double for the men from the west.
