Okay, we’ve named our team to play Tyrone. Here it is:
Mayo (NFL Division One v Tyrone, 18/3/2018): Robbie Hennelly (Breaffy); Caolan Crowe (Garrymore); Ger Cafferkey (Ballina Stephenites); Eoin O’Donoghue (Belmullet); Colm Boyle (Davitts), Lee Keegan (Westport), Michael Hall (Breaffy); Stephen Coen (Hollymount/Carramore), Seamus O’Shea (Breaffy); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber); Jason Doherty (Burrishoole), Andy Moran (Ballaghaderreen), Adam Gallagher (Mayo Gaels).
So the eagled-eyed among you will have spotted, no doubt, that this is the same line-up we named for the Kildare game. We made two changes ahead of throw-in at Newbridge last Sunday and so that means that the team we’ve named for this one contains those two changes from last Sunday’s starting fifteen. In come Breaffy duo Michael Hall and Seamus O’Shea and out go Tom Parsons and all-time scoring record chaser Cillian O’Connor. Or not, I guess.
Looking at the team that started for us up in Omagh twelve months ago, when the weather was very different to what we’re likely to have to endure tomorrow in Castlebar, the team we’ve named for this one contains only four survivors. Colm Boyle, Lee Keegan, Kevin McLoughlin and Andy Moran all lined out from the start in Healy Park last year. That said, Stephen Coen, Diarmuid O’Connor, Aidan O’Shea and Jason Doherty all joined the fray from the bench that day.
Earlier on today, Tyrone also named their team for tomorrow – full details here.
Best of luck to all the lads chosen to line out for us in tomorrow’s match.
