V one sided 2.14 to 0.07 Dublin keeper was terrible. Was the cause of the first goal after a few minutes. Bad kick outs and kicked a few over the side line. I'd have changed him after 10 minutes. It was effectively over as a contest at halftime. Cavan were very good, very mobile and very fast. Dublin had one or two chances but didn't convert. On a damp night and greasy pitch there was some excellent football played. We've had Dublin in the final for the past three years. Lost narrowly 2 years ago and missed a peno, beat them last year and hammered them this year. It's probably the last year these young lads get to express themselves on the field wearing a Cavan jersey before they are stifled into a system. This is a great tournament for U16's, brilliantly supported - huge crowd at matches and its a credit to Oldcastle who run it every year. Its sad that its in honour of a young lad who lost his life in 1987
