MAYO and Tipperary will battle it out for All-Ireland U14 B glory on Sunday at Duggan Park, Ballinasloe. These counties have met previously in the All-Ireland U14 B final, back in 2008 when Mayo proved victorious. In their All-Ireland semi-final against Westmeath, Tipperary enjoyed a hugely impressive 6-14 to 2-6 victory in Banagher. It was a much tighter affair in Kinnegad as Mayo booked their place in the final, with a narrow 2-10 to 3-6 win against Antrim. Tipperary can boast an excellent recent record in the All-Ireland U14 B competition, as they were winners in 2016, 2015 and 2011. Mayo, who have been prominent in the A grade in recent years, won their only All-Ireland U14 B title ten years ago, in that aforementioned fixture against Tipperary.
