Brian Dunleavy (Mayo), in fantastic form this season, done the double winning both the U15 and U18 Boys Titles. Maria Williams (Mayo) added another U15 Girls Connacht Title to continue her remarkable success in this event. Orla Timlin (Mayo) proved to be almost unbeatable this season capturing U18 Girls Season Title.
