Well done to Roscommon CBS on winning Connacht by beating Carrick on shannon,Summerhill,Headford and Ballina schools and reaching the All Ireland final last night by beating Downpartick by 6 points.

Lots of talents footballers on this team. John Martin,Ciaran Lawless,Albert Looby,Jack Lohan,Charlie Carthy,Liam Ormsby,James Fitzpatrick,James Browne,Colin Walsh,Richard Walsh,Keith Doyle to name but a few that have all played for Roscommon underage teams over the last few years in the Fr Manning and Ted Webb cup and a few have played minor/u17 with Roscommon and Lawless the captain played for the U20s last year.

Best of luck to them now in the All Ireland final on April 6th in Croke Park against Rathmore of Kerry.

Congrats. Is that the B All Ireland? St Colmans Claremorris play Enniskillen in the A Hogan cup semi on sat so hopefully there will be a Connacht double in Croke Park.

Its B but not much difference in the quality of A and B this year. Only a few years ago Roscommon CBS won the Connacht A title and reached the Hogan cup final and this years side is arguably stronger than that one but still might not win the All Ireland. Rathmore who CBS play in the final on April 6th reached the Kerry final in December and only lost narrowly to the Hogan cup favorites and the Ballina team that CBS beat in Connacht semi final would be more than a match for Claremorris.

Was a Connacht double header in Croke Park last year with our own St Nathys school losing out in Drummond cup hopefully CBS can go one better this year.

The very best to the young footballers of Roscommon CBS in the All Ireland B Paddy Drummond Cup in Croke Park tomorrow. This team have the ability and skill to win this All Ireland tomorrow. Also best wishes to the management of the team. A small cohort of dedicated teachers of GAA teams are proudly guiding teams from the CBS to heights in Connacht and Nationally. Tomorrow must be a very proud day for all present and past.

All Ireland champions in Croke Park. That doesn't happen often enough for Roscommom teams. After a nervous 1st half by the CBS players it was the 10/15 minute after the break that won the game for CBS. Rathmore a fine team themselves didn't go down without a fight but that winning score by James Fitzpatrick was good enough to win any match.

Good all round team performance and holding a high scoring Kerry team to just 1-4 from play was key. Lohan (wishing him well on his injury) Martin,Murray were the stands out in defence, Murray 1-2 from play my MOTM. Looby,Doyle in midfield formed impressive partnership and Fitzpatrick,Ormsby were the stand outs in the forward line. Huge congrats to all should be great night in Roscommon town tonight..

Great win and with the last kick of the game against the Kerry lads.Does this mean we'll have a strong Minor County team this year.

No with minor now U17 most of that CBS starting team are overage now. We should have a strong U20 team in the next year or two.

Very well done to Roscommon CBS. A hugely talented group of players who's hard work was rewarded with All Ireland title.

A nervy and error ridden 1st half but it was still important to hold the Kerry school to 0-6. CBS much the better side 2nd half winning it by 4 point when they probably deserved a far greater margin. Rathmore goal came against the run of play and twice in the build up there was a case of over carrying. CBS kept cool heads though to earn the win they fully deserved.
