We’ve just named our team to play Westmeath in Round 4B of the qualifiers at Croke Park tomorrow evening (throw-in 6pm) and I guess it won’t come as a seismic shock for anyone to learn that the line-up we’ve named is unchanged from that which started against Kildare two weeks ago. For the record, here it is:
Mayo (All-Ireland Qualifier Round 4B v Westmeath 30/7/2016): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites), Brendan Harrison (Aghamore), Kevin Keane (Westport), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis); Lee Keegan (Westport), Colm Boyle (Davitts), Paddy Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels); Seamus O’Shea (Breaffy), Donal Vaughan (Ballinrobe); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber); Evan Regan (Ballina Stephenites), Andy Moran (Ballaghaderreen), Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber).
So it looks as if Kevin Keane is okay to play at least some part in proceedings tomorrow evening, though whether or not we start him is another question. As ever, all will be revealed on the day.
Best of luck to Stephen and the lads as they attempt to secure the county’s sixth successive appearance in the All-Ireland series.
