Team for Christy Ring Cup final named

The team and substitutes for tomorrow’s Christy Ring Cup final against Kildare at Croke Park (throw-in 5pm) have been named. In a nice touch, the team announcement for the title decider includes not just the names of all those on the match day panel but also the members of the extended panel.

Here’s the full list we’ve named:

Mayo (Christy Ring Cup final v Kildare, 21/5/2022): Bobby Douglas (Tooreen); Gary Nolan (Tooreen), Stephen Coyne (Tooreen), Paul Kirwin (Ballyhaunis); Mark Phillips (Ballyhaunis), Ger McManus (St Jude’s, Dublin), David Kenny (Tooreen); Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis), Daniel Huane (Tooreen); Seán Kenny (Tooreen), Joe Mooney (Loughrea, Galway), Adrian Phillips (Ballyhaunis); Eoin Delaney (Tooreen), Joe McManus (St Jude’s, Dublin), Shane Boland (Tooreen, captain). Subs: Barry Lane (Castlebar Mitchels), Brian Hunt (Ballyhaunis), Kenny Feeney (Tooreen), Patrick Lyons (Tooreen), Conal Hession (Tooreen), Darren Murray (Ballina Stephenites), Kealan Gallagher (Westport), Shane Crinnigan (Tooreen), Danny Hill (Ballyhaunis), Conor Murray (Castlebar Mitchels), Eoghan Roe (Clremorris). Extended panel: Aaron Ketterick (Westport), Jack Trench (Tooreen), James Gallagher (Westport), Padraig Mooney (Tooreen), Ronan Treacy (Castlebar Mitchels).

The starting team we’ve named for tomorrow’s final is, unsurprisingly, the same as the one that got the better of Derry last weekend. There’s significant change, though, from last year’s Rackard Cup winning team, as the team named to play Kildare tomorrow includes just eight of the lads who lined out against Tyrone in that decider last year.

The very best of luck to Derek, Shane and all the lads as they shoot for the stars at HQ tomorrow.

  1. Best of luck to all involved. Being from Louisburgh, I’m not from the hurling end of the county but I’ll be roaring them on from the Hogan Stand tomorrow ??

  2. All the best to the lads tomorrow. I’ll be there tomorrow too, with pints beforehand in the usual watering holes and fry up that we always have going to the football matches in Croker. These lads deserve the exact same respect and support from us tomorrow that we give the footballers. Up Mayo!!

  3. Will be there tomorrow with my two little Kildare daughters. At least some of us will go home happy for once from a final.

  4. Best of luck to the hurlers tomorrow.Rank outsiders v a very strong Kildare team who should be operating at a higher level. +12 according to the bookies. Super achievement to get to Final and the honor of playing in Croker is so well deserved Really hope they do themselves proud

  5. Best of luck to hurlers. Hopefully they will be competitive but under 15 points would be good. Still a lot of positive to bring from the campaign. They should sail through Division 3 and be in strong position to challenge for Ring next year hopefully. Mhaigh Eo Abu…

  6. Anyone want a couple of tickets , premier level Cusack. given three , only need one for myself . (No charge as I wasn’t charged , premium level Cusack)

  7. Kildare are 1/20 to win this , must be a shoe in , do 1/20 shots ever lose , ?

  8. Looks like we are rank outsiders. Anyway sport has a habit of throwing up shocks every now and then. Beta of luck Mayo

  9. Good luck to the hurlers this evening and I hope they put in a good performance and enjoy the final.

  10. Im hearing that Croker have sold out the Lower Hogan for today and wont be selling any more tickets

  11. Good luck, Mayo hurlers today! To all who will be there supporting, have a brilliant day.
    It’s exciting and a great achievement. And we’re egging ye on, team and crowd in the stands!!!

  12. Thanks for the offer Sean Burke but we are in already. Nice day for it.

  13. Don’t think I’ve ever seen so many comments on a Mayo hurling match on WJ’s blog. These lads dedicate just as much time and effort to the Mayo cause as our footballers, and as Travelling Wilbury said above, they have more than earned the right to just as much respect. The very best of luck to them today.

  14. Best of luck to the Mayo hurlers today, stay with them and you never know!
    Never made Croker at underage with Mayo losing out at semi stage in 1967 to Westmeath
    and minor in ’66 to Roscommon.

  15. Theres any amount of seats in hogan stand, i think the people who were saying it was sold out were taking the micky

  16. 2-17 to 0-8 at half time. Can’t fault the effort but Mayo struggling to stay competitive, understandably given the trimming received off Kildare in group stages.

  17. Hard to watch but cannot fault the lads effort. Strange atmosphere here at HQ. I haven’t been here before with such a small crowd.

  18. Looks to be only 200 at the game. Anyway Mayo completely outclassed by a superior team. I think this final has come a bit early for this Mayo teams stage of development. An achievement in itself getting to the final.

  19. Agreed yew_tree achievement in itself when you consider Mayo came into this championship off the back of league relegation.

  20. Not the result we wanted but well done to Derek and the lads for getting to the final and giving an honest account of themselves we were expecting Kildare to be too strong. i have a large portion of the Hogan stand all to myself might be the last time we’ll be here this year going by injure updates

  21. Hard luck to our Mayo hurlers. Thank you for representing us so well all season and for doing us proud.

  22. Well done to the hurlers on getting to their final and for keeping the hurling flag flying. They racked up a fair score as well so they have plenty to be proud of.
