As far as I know there are 2 competitions, one for Under 15's and one for Under 16's. That could be the reason that Galway have 2 teams taking part. I also think that Offaly are involved as well.

galway had no u15 team.the u15 teams were kildare,tipperary,wexford and sligo.
galway always field two teams at u16 level tho, galway north and galway city/west. kildare, tipperary and offaly only fielded one team.
galway north lost all three games.
galway city/west lost by a point to tipperary after conceding a late goal, 1-6 to 0-8.they defeated galway north and got hammered by kildare.
kildare v offaly was abandoned after a disgraceful brawl erupted. kildare bet tipperary in the deciding game.
