A number of you have been chatting away today about Galway’s team for tomorrow, which was named earlier on today. If you haven’t seen it yet, full details of the team they’ve announced for the match are here.
There’s no sign as yet of our team for this opening fixture of the year (throw-in time 2pm) but, hey, it is only the FBD League so it’s possible we won’t name a team in advance at all. In any event, at this stage there’s not long to do ’till tomorrow’s throw-in.
The only notification about the game from Mayo GAA today comes in the form of this missive via Twitter:
Fans are advised that there will be restricted access to the main stand in MacHale Park tomorrow.
Following last Tuesday’s storm some lights & seats were damaged. A small section of the stand will be closed, fans are asked to cooperate with stewards are all times tomorrow. pic.twitter.com/CX7srZkdLA

This announcement goes some way towards explaining that odd claim the other day that the match was off. It turns out that Storm Eleanor did some damage to the place alright, though clearly not enough to stop the game going ahead.
