We’ve just named our team for Sunday’s All-Ireland final against Donegal at Croke Park (throw-in 3.30pm) and despite all the talk about Colm and Lee and Aidan and all the rest, the same team that was selected to start against Dublin gets the nod again for Game 5. This means that Chris Barrett, a late replacement for Colm Boyle prior to throw-in against Dublin, reverts to the bench with the Davitts man picked to line out at left half-back.
Here’s the team:
Mayo (All-Ireland SFC final v Donegal, 23/9/2012): David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites); Kevin Keane (Westport), Ger Cafferkey (Ballina Stephenites), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis); Lee Keegan (Westport), Donal Vaughan (Ballinrobe), Colm Boyle (Davitts); Barry Moran (Castlebar Mitchels), Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy); Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole), Alan Dillon (Ballintubber); Enda Varley (Garrymore), Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber), Michael Conroy (Davitts).
As is normal practice now, we haven’t released any details of the list of subs at this stage.
