Earlier on today we named our team to face defending champions Dublin in the LGFA All-Ireland SFC semi-final at Croke Park on Saturday. The game throws in at 3.45pm that afternoon and here’s the team we’re going with for it:
Mayo (LGFA All-Ireland SFC semi-final v Dublin 14/8/2021): Laura Brennan (Hollymount); Saoirse Lally (Westport), Dayna Finn (Kiltimagh), Clodagh McManamon (Burrishoole, captain); Tamara O’Connor (Cill Chomain), Ciara Whyte (Kilmoremoy), Kathryn Sullivan (Castlebar Mitchels); Fiona McHale (Carnacon), Sinead Cafferkey (Kilmovee Shamrocks); Niamh Kelly (Moy Davitts), Rachel Kearns (MacHale Rovers), Lisa Cafferkey (Kilmovee Shamrocks); Grace Kelly (Moy Davitts), Shauna Howley (Knockmore), Sarah Rowe (Kilmoremoy).
The team we’ve named for Saturday shows just one change from the one that overcame Galway at the quarter-final stage the weekend before last. Back into the team comes fit-again captain Clodagh McManamon who replaces Roisín Durcan at corner-back.
The best of luck to the team on Saturday. I’m looking forward to being there at GAA HQ myself to roar them on in this one.
