Match Report

All-Ireland U15 Hibernia Cup Final (Peter O’Keefe Cup)


Dylan Quinn to the fore in the Final

 Mayo                     5-16

Armagh                1-01

In Donegal COE, Convoy, Co. Donegal.


A fast turnaround for both sides saw this All-Ireland U15 Hibernia Cup Final contested between Mayo and the more physically stronger Armagh outfit.

In this game it was Castlebar sharpshooter Dylan Quinn who drove on the Mayo attack up front converted 2-3 from play over the forty minutes of hurling. He was ably assisted in the scoring ranks by Niall Peoples (0-6), Oisin Duffy (0-2) and Fionn Cinsealla (0-2) as Mayo strode to victory in this decider. So much so that Mayo substitutes Dylan Burke and Tom Donnellan both goaled shortly after their introduction to the field in the second half.


The Mayo side showed great teamwork and work rate throughout the day culminating in an almost perfect days hurling. The Mayo defence conceded very little - due mostly to their tigerish defending - with Cian Fahey, Eoghan Enright and joint-captain Matthew Delaney excelling in the Mayo rear guard throughout.

 After the game, Donegal GAA officer Manus Donnelly presented the Peter O’Keefe Cup to Mayo joint captains Niall Peoples (Ballina) and Matthew Delaney (Tooreen).
