Match-day panels for U20 and hurling games named

Match-day panels for the U20 footballers’ Leo Murphy Cup final against Meath today and for tomorrow’s NHL Division 3A meeting with Monaghan have been named.

The U20 game takes place at Kiltoom this afternoon, where the throw-in is at 2pm. It’s free entry to this game, with no requirement for tickets for it. Here’s the match-day panel we’ve named for today’s clash with the Royal County:

It’s an interesting team, not least in light of the fact that Sam Callinan and Bob Tuohy – two players already making waves at Senior level this year – have both been included in it, at midfield and wing forward respectively. A few of the U20s from 2022 are still involved this year – Sam is one of these, as too is Conal Dawson, Fenton Kelly (who has also seen Senior action this year), Seán Morahan, Jack Fallon and Tom O’Flaherty.

A number of last year’s Minor side have also made the step up to the U20 this year, with ‘keeper David Dolan as well as Paul Gilmore, James Maheady and Dara Hurley named to start while highly talented forward Ronan Clarke is listed among the subs.

Tomorrow, meanwhile, the hurlers have a crunch encounter with Monaghan, a match that throws in at Hastings Insurance MacHale Park at 2pm. This really is a must-win game for us and here’s the match-day panel we’ve named for it:

The starting team we’ve named shows just one change from the side that lost narrowly to Armagh last time out. Into the team comes John Heraty, with the Moytura player lining out at centre-forward, replacing Oisín Greally.

The best of luck to both Mayo teams in action this weekend, and good luck as well to the camógs, who play Tyrone in Division 3A of the Camogie League at Tooreen today (throw-in 2pm).

  1. Safe travels to those on road today, still dodgy in places.
    You’d imagine Mayo should be to strong fro Meath with that selection.

  2. U20 Leo Murphy with Meath cancelled due to an unplayable pitch. If only there were some indoor venue on a 2hr reschedule. God sake, change to the dome don’t cancel it.

  3. Agreed jp. I’m sure there’s alternative venue they could have used even without the dome. Fair play to mcstay for releasing the lads for the game. I don’t think it would be done before but probably won’t be done for the refixed game

  4. Does anyone know is Niall hurley injured. He was the main hurley on the minor team last year but no sign of him now and dara getting the start every time.

  5. No doubt, that game may not be played as Meath have championship in couple of weeks.

  6. Niall Hurley back training and Ronan Clarke also on way back from injury. Todays Mayo selection getting close to strongest side . Leinster championship for Meath starts 21/3 for 4 consecutive weeks on a group basis giving all counties at least 4 championship games. Don’t see why Connacht u20 championship could not follow similar formant instead of straight knockout. These lads will have been training for 4-5 months . Hopefully they can get this final refixed with Meath .
