Good luck to Tyrone this weekend. Was disappointed not to get to see it in Croke Park on Paddy's Day. Glad the lads are getting to finish their Championship.

Really looking forward to this, we were motoring well at this age group before March, hoping all that happened since hasn't knocked us of our groove.

Difficult to call this, Tyrone are crack outfit. This is live on TG4 at 2:30, before the Dub5 at 7:00.

Seems Galway will be missing at least half a dozen players due to being close contacts of COVID cases. Very unfortunate and an awful pity.

Replying To Kerry15:  "2 great games to look forward to this weekend. Kerry Galway especially should be a fantastic game. If I'd to predict the finalists I think I would say Kerry and Dublin but Galway and Tyrone could easily win too, its very tight."
Definitely won't be easy called. It's got to the stage for me just looking forward to the games whoever wins.

Unfortunately through a Covid development we will be missing 4 players who were chosen in the starting 15 on top of certain starters Dan McCarthy and Donal O'Sullivan who are both injured. Makes things an awful lot more difficult but hopefully we can put in a good performance and possibly sneak the win. I think Galway are missing 2 starters.

That is horrible news, really upset to hear that. Best wishes to those players who are dealing with Covid i think we all wish them a speedy recovery. Good luck to the Kerry team today in adverse circumstances.

Where did you get the Galway team to know there are two missing? There may be more missing with injuries.

I'd say Galway should beat our U20s Kerry15 as we've lost the spine of our team and captain Paul O'Shea all at such short notice, our bench looks a lot weaker as well.

Stop.. sure Galway have lost their own spine, Paul Kelly, Mc Loughlin and Fox all from Moycullen along with Cathal Sweeney who is probably the best player in the country at this grade...

What's the story with Kerry's inability to bring on their minors into u20? 5 in a row and failed to bring them on.

A really good solid performance from this Galway u20 team. Any victory over the fabled Kingdom is welcome. This result shows imho that there is a lot of good young players coming through for Galway GAA. Gaillimh abú.

Really pleased with the performance by those raised on songs on stories, that's the type of game we would have lost at minor or even U 20 last year. Ground it out today, sticking to the Dublin way, good composure and quality. Working scores holding the ball good strategic play, waited until Tyrone tired after a huge effort, snuck in front and Tyrone had to come out. Wel be looking at Archer for 15 years so no surprise he was key today, thought Swan was managed well, Lorcan O Dell and Mark Laven are quality footballers, Fearnon would have been my man of the match but for going of with injury. Lee Gannon from Whitehall Colmcilles would be my pick, though he was super both in attack, defense and leadership when the game was in the melting pot.

Thought Tyrone were great, great first half performence trading blows. Hugely impressed with the back 6, we have some top forwards at this grade and they were managed brilliantly, great swarming and team work from Tyrone. Tyrone never wasted anything and that was hugely impressive, many of that team will go on. I think they put to much into defending and that tipped the balance, energy wise between defending and attacking.
