Mayo 2-13 Tyrone 1-13: Mayo completed the first half of what they hope will be an All-Ireland double as the county minor team held off a fightback from Tyrone to win their first title in 28 years.
Conroy’s brilliant finish gave Mayo a 1-4 to 0-6 lead at the break and Doherty also added two points to his goal as Mayo built up a 2-8 to 0-6 lead 10minutes into the second half.
Tyrone fought their way back to get within three points, but just when the Ulster side looked like turning the tide, Mayo pointed through Conroy and Conor Loftus.
Tyrone did get the ball in the net in added on time, with Conor McKenna fisting the ball home, but it was to be Mayo’s day in the end.
