Mayo unchanged for semi-final replay

By Stephen Barry

It may be overshadowed by news of Diarmuid Connolly’s upheld suspension for Saturday’s replay, but Mayo have announced their team to face Dublin tonight.

The Westerners have announced the same line-up that played in the drawn game, with David Clarke and Barry Moran remaining on the bench.

Andy Moran may also have to sit-out the first whistle, with no room for the game-levelling hero in the team.

Rob Hennelly and David Drake continue in the starting team so, with Chris Barrett again named at number six.

Donal Vaughan also retains his full-back berth after recovering from a shoulder injury.

Mayo lost out to Kerry in a semi-final replay last year and will be hoping to reverse that outcome to earn a crack at the Kingdom in the final.

Mayo team to face Dublin:

Robert Hennelly (Breaffy);

Ger Cafferkey (Ballina Stephenites), Donal Vaughan (Ballinrobe), Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis, Captain);

Lee Keegan (Westport), Chris Barrett (Belmullet), Colm Boyle (Davitts);

Seamus O'Shea (Breaffy), Tom Parsons (Charlestown Sarsfields);

Diarmuid O'Connor (Ballintubber), Aidan O'Shea (Breaffy), Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore);

David Drake (Ballaghaderreen ), Cillian O'Connor (Ballintubber), Jason Doherty (Burrishoole).
