Derry went on to qualify for the Under 16 Ulster B Championship final. They lost heavily to Monaghan and won by default over Armagh, thus qualifying for the Ulster B Final.
In the B final played in Magheracloone in Monaghan Cavan defeated Derry on a scoreline of 3.14 to 0.03
Derry had a frustrating 2015 season at Minor Grade.

While early indications were that things were looking good, a combination of events led to the season petering out to a disappointing end.
The Under 18 side were faced with games against Cavan, Fermanagh, Armagh and Monaghan and while the challenge against Cavan was always going to be a tough obstacle the panel performed admirably in their second match, a home tie against Fermanagh.
Scores from 2015 were:
Derry 0.03 Cavan 6.27
Derry 6.24 Fermanagh 0.03
Armagh 11.18 Derry 1.05
