The Leinster Minor Football Championship is a Gaelic football tournament in the province of Leinster.[1] The current Leinster champions are Dublin who beat Kildare in the final which was played in Croke Park.[2] The Leinster minor football championship is known as Fr. Larry Murphy Trophy. The Cup is named after Fr. Larry Murphy who was an underage GAA mentor in both Louth and Armagh, hence the Ulster Minor Football Championship is also named after Fr. Larry Murphy.[3]

History[edit]

Longford won in the first year of the Leinster Minor Championship in 1929 in Navan, Co. Meath. They beat Dublin in the final by a scoreline of 3–04 to 1–04 in the final. Longford went on to reach the All-Ireland final that year but failed to beat Clare Minor football team in the final of the series.[4]
