We’ve named our team to face Dublin at MacHale Park tomorrow night (throw-in 7pm). Here it is:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Dublin 24/2/2018): Robbie Hennelly (Breaffy); Caolan Crowe (Garrymore), Ger Cafferkey (Ballina Stephenites), Eoin O’Donoghue (Belmullet); Colm Boyle (Davitts), Michael Hall (Breaffy), David Drake (Ballaghaderreen); Stephen Coen (Hollymount/Carramore), Jason Gibbons (Ballintubber); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber); Jason Doherty (Burrishoole), Andy Moran (Ballaghaderreen), Adam Gallagher (Mayo Gaels).
So it’s four changes from the team that started against Galway last time out. Out from then go David Clarke, Paddy Durcan (injured), Cillian O’Connor (suspended) and Conor Loftus while in come Robbie Hennelly (his first competitive start for the county since the 2016 All-Ireland final replay), David Drake, Andy Moran and Adam Gallagher.
The team we’ve named for tomorrow night is a significantly altered one from the side that lined out when we last faced Dublin, in last year’s All-Ireland final. Only five of that starting fifteen – Colm Boyle, Kevin McLoughlin, Aidan O’Shea, Jason Doherty and Andy Moran – will also be there from the start in tomorrow night’s game. Ger Cafferkey, Stephen Coen, Diarmuid O’Connor and Conor Loftus, who all appeared off the bench in last year’s All-Ireland, are, however, also in the first fifteen for MacHale Park.
Best of luck to all of the lads picked to play tomorrow night.
