You’ll have heard the news already, I know, but, for the record, Enda Gilvarry and his selectors earlier today named an unchanged team for Sunday’s All-Ireland minor semi-final against Kerry at Croke Park (throw-in 1.30pm). The full list of the starting fifteen and subs for this one is as follows:
Mayo (All-Ireland MFC semi-final v Kerry, 24/8/2014): Matthew Flanagan (Balla); Conor Kilkenny (Aghamore), Seamus Cunniffe (Ballaghaderreen), Eoin O’Donoghue (Belmullet); Jason Forkan (Kiltimagh), Barry Duffy (Balla), Sean Conlon (Castlebar Mitchels); Gary Walsh (Breaffy), Matthew Ruane (Breaffy); Gary Boylan (Belmullet), Cian Hanley (Ballaghaderreen, captain), Sharoize Akram (Ballaghaderreen); Fionan Duffy (Crossmolina), TJ Byrne (Kiltimagh), Brian Reape (Bohola Moy Davitts). Subs: Scott Kilker (Belmullet), Stephen Brennan (Claremorris), Dylan Cannon (Breaffy), David Clarke (Ballintubber), Keith Hopkins (Crossmolina), Conor Byrne (Bohola Moy Davitts), Oisin Horan (Kilmovee Shamrocks), Liam Byrne (Bohola Moy Davitts), Jack Reilly (Charlestown Sarsfields).

This bunch of lads are up against it but so were they v Galway and then Ross and they prevailed. It seems the bigger the challenge the greater the application. And do they apply themselves ?
Good luck lads on Sunday, ye have done us more than proud so far.
I was really impressed with this team in the Connacht final and against Armagh in Croke Park. If we can win enough ball around the middle the likes of Hanly and Reape will give us a real chance.
Was just chatting with my cousin on the senior panel and word has it that the senior panel have caught the same bug as the minors had earlier on?
Were up against Galway but not so much in the Connacht final. It wouldn’t be wise to take too much out of the Armagh game as they were poor and were well beaten in the Ulster final also.
Kerry will be good as Galway its a challenge for Mayo but a challenge these young lads will be ready for.
Forgot to finish my post
THE WINNING BUG!!!!!!
Good luck to the minors, it’s always easy to forget their importance when the seniors have a big game on the horizon.
They’ll be up against a top team in Kerry. This is supposedly as good a minor team as they’ve had, which probably explains why that cute hoor O’Connor went back there to manage them. A lot of them have Hogan Cup medals in their pockets.
Spillane and Burns will take particular watching.
But I have ever faith in our young lads and expect them to pull through an almighty high scoring battle.
Good luck ladeen’s! I don’t have the insight on how capable they are, but just remember we are the All Ireland Champions, so show Kerry no respect.
Just bate them, and move on.
