Caught on the hop here a bit but we’ve just named our starting team for the final and here it is:
Mayo (All-Ireland SFC final v Dublin 18/9/2016): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Brendan Harrison (Aghamore), Donal Vaughan (Ballinrobe), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis); Lee Keegan (Westport), Colm Boyle (Davitts), Paddy Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels); Seamus O’Shea (Breaffy), Tom Parsons (Charlestown Sarsfields); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber); Jason Doherty (Burrishoole), Andy Moran (Ballaghaderreen), Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber, captain).
The starting fifteen we’ve named shows one change from that which lined out against Tipperary in last month’s semi-final. In comes Tom Parsons at midfield in place of Barry Moran with Donal Vaughan switching (at least where it comes to jersey number) to full-back.
As is standard practice, we’ve opted not to name our subs lists at this stage.
Whether or not we line out with the fifteen players named above is something that won’t, of course, be revealed until shortly before throw-in. Whatever the line-up turns out to be at 3.30pm on Sunday, the best of luck to them.
