The 2011 All-Ireland Minor Football Championship (known for sponsorship reasons as the ESB Minor Football Championship) was the premier "knockout" competition for under-18 competitors of the game of Gaelic football played in Ireland. The games were organised by the Gaelic Athletic Association. The 2011 series of games kicked off on the 13 April with the majority of the games played during the summer months. The All-Ireland Minor Football Final took place on the 18 September in Croke Park, Dublin, preceding the All-Ireland Senior Football Final. Tipperary won the competition for the second time and the first time since 1934 after a 3-9 to 1-14 win against Dublin.[1][2][3][4]
