Just a quick one to confirm that we’ve named our starting fifteen (but not our subs list) for the Connacht semi-final clash with Galway at MacHale Park on Saturday evening (throw-in 7pm). Here it is:
Mayo (Connacht SFC semi-final v Galway, 18/6/2016): Robbie Hennelly (Breaffy); Brendan Harrison (Aghamore), Kevin Keane (Westport), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis); Lee Keegan (Westport), Colm Boyle (Davitts), Paddy Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels); Tom Parsons (Charlestown Sarsfields), Jason Gibbons (Ballintubber); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole); Evan Regan (Ballina Stephenites), Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber, captain), Conor O’Shea (Breaffy).
So it’s just one change from the side that started in Ruislip, with Tom Parsons – who was named to start the last day but didn’t do so – coming in for Stephen Coen. Time will tell – as is always the case with team announcements these days – if this is actually the selection that’ll be on the pitch when the ball is thrown in on Saturday evening.
