Minor Championship Final 

Rinn Gaels 1-11 Melvin Gaels 2-11

Rinn Gaels faced Melvin Gaels in the Division 2 Minor Championship Final in Páirc Seán on Saturday last. Having lost by 12 points to the Kinlough side in the round robin stage of the Championship, it was always going to be an uphill battle for the Bornacoola/Gortletteragh amalgamation. 

And so it proved, as despite leading by two points at half time, Melvin Gaels proved the better team in the second half and two goals in that period would ensure their eventual 2-11 to 1-11 victory. However it was once again a positive campaign for the Rinn Gaels lads and much improvement was evident over the course of the campaign. 

The team in Saturday’s final was Sean O Riordan, Tom Reel, Ciaran Reen, Oisin Niblock, Ciaran Mc Glynn, Odhran Heslin, James Cunningham, Shane Mallon, Ryan Cunningham, Shane Reynolds, Brendan Davis, Jamie Quinn and Ciaran Reynolds while the subs bench included Jake Shields (who was injured for the final), Conor Niblock, James Doyle, Cian Mc Nulty, Brendan Naughton, Mark Reynolds and Nathan Ward. A big well done and thank you to the management team of Kevin Mallon and Mark Duignan
