  1. It’ll be especially interesting to see how Adam Gallager and Darren Coen will get on, as they have played with the Mayo Senior team in the past. It’s a great chance for them to make a good impression. Best of luck to all involved!

  2. Micheal Forde also played a few League games with the seniors last year and Andrew Farrell played FBD this year. Darren McHugh got a run in the FBD last year. Sean Kelly also has a piece of Mayo GAA history to his name, as he was the first county player to be ordered off on a black card in a senior match. That happened in the first round of the FBD in January 2014: he came on as a sub for Adam Gallagher before exiting the action on a black card.

  3. I did wonder what became of Adam Gallagher – he showed a lot of promise when he did play with the Seniors. I know he had a hip injury, hope he makes a full recovery and gets back to his best.

  4. Great to see Sean Kelly get the nod. A very exciting player with bags of potential.

  5. That looks a fairly strong team. In terms of pure football a lot of good footballers there in particular up front. Darren McHugh is a solid operator at the back. Feerick is a good footballer. Later in the year I suppose they might get a few from the U21 panel, 2 or 3 more footballers from the U21s and yer talking about a good solid team.

  6. Had hoped to spin down to this but alas, am still at the desk. The sky doesn’t look too promising out there though so I’m secretly a bit relieved, there’ll be a fine wind whipping in off the Atlantic tonight.

  7. Thanks JP, that’s a good result. Anne-Marie you aught to be ashamed of yourself and the field only a stones throw away 🙂

  8. I was thinking something over the weekend. Breaffy are set to have the additions of older and in form Hall, Ruane and Irwin.
    Thats added to the three OSheas plus Rob Hennelly. For club level that is serious strength.
    Ballaghadereen are set to have Seamus Cunniffe, Shairoze Akram and Ryan Lynch.
    Aghamore are set to have Ciaran Harrison, David Kenny, Fergal Boland, James Lyons, Barry Duffy and Ross Egan.
    Some teams will be getting a serious boost to close the gap to Castlebar.
    Aghamore are going to have real depth for the first time. No more reliance on Alan Freeman.
    Westport are about to get a huge fillup.
    Belmullet similar. Claremorris will get a boost of talent.
    It should really tighten up the senior and intermediate championships.
