Cadbury GAA U21 Football Championship 2012

(Oldest Posts First) - Go To The Latest Post

Kraft Foods today announced the renewal of the Cadbury sponsorship of the GAA U21 Football Championship for another 3 years. The renewal builds on a successful 7 year partnership between Cadbury and the GAA which has seen the Championship go from strength to strength with greater TV coverage now than ever before and over 20,000 fans attending the final in Croke Park last year. This success has been built on innovative sponsorship activation especially in the area of new media which has seen an ever increasing engaged audience of GAA fans participate in the Championship discussion.

Launching the Championship at an event in Croke Park today were promising Under 21 footballers; Patrick McBrearty (Donegal), Michael Quinlivan (Tipperary) and Cillian O'Connor (Mayo), Uachtarán Chumann Lúthchleas Gael Críostóir Ó Cuana and Cadbury Hero of the Future (HOTF) Judges: Paul Caffrey, Dermot Earley and Micheál Ó Domhnaill.

Anybody know of potential winners this year? Armagh won the minor grade three years ago, Galway have a few from last year's team (the two midfielders who were brilliant last year) and I hear Kildare are supposed to ahve a strong team....not much talk of Kerry yet, good management team in place though!

Tends to be a minor panel from 2 years ago rather than the full 3 years that goes well in the U21's therefore I think Tyrone will shade Armagh in Ulster. I also think Mayo, Cork and Dublin will make the last four.

Roscommon or Galway will win Connaught. Longford could be an outside bet, they have 13 of they're starting 15 from last years Leinster final team eligible.

From a Galway point of view, not very strong this year. Can't look beyond Mayo in that one. To the best of knowledge Roscommon didn't have the best of times in their Hasting Cup campaign this year if that bares any relevance on Championship football?
