The INTO Mini Sevens are back!   12/08/2017

Each Sunday from August 6th to September 17th, Gerry O Meara and his team will ensure that the INTO Mini Sevens, coordinated by Cumann na mBunscol, take centre stage in Croke Park.

The INTO GAA Mini Sevens have been a feature of Big Match Day in Croke Park during the months of August and September since the concept became a reality in 1987. Boys and girls from all counties of Ireland and beyond get the opportunity to play in Croke Park on the occasion of the biggest games in the GAA calendar. Tipperary native Gerry O Meara, Principal of Scoil Treasa in Firhouse, Co. Dublin  is National Co ordinator of the Mini Sevens, the name by which these games are known although they are now played in ten- a- side format! Gerry was busy during April and May sifting through the information supplied to him by Cumann na mBunscol units throughout the country. Counties are allocated quotas of players in boys’ and girls’ football, hurling and camogie. These quotas rotate on a cyclical basis to ensure equal opportunities for children from all counties. Dublin and Cork receive larger quotas than other counties. Gerry’s job is to collate all the information he receives and allocate slots on the six days when the Mini Sevens are played, i.e. the days of the All-Ireland hurling and football semi-finals and finals. 

Paul Galvin, TJ Reid, Brian Fenton and Niamh Mulcahy are just some of the stars of the game who made their Croke Park bow in the Mini 7's. In total, 240 boys and girls are given the opportunity to play in Croke Park on the biggest occasions of the year.
