Barrett and Doherty in for Mayo

Mayo have made two changes for tomorrow’s Allianz Football League Division 1 semi-final with Dublin at Croke Park (throw-in 3.45pm).

While the side which beat Cork by a point last week is largely unchanged, Belmullet’s Chris Barrett is selected at left corner-back in place of Shane MacHale, while in attack Jason Doherty of Burrishoole is named at full-forward instead of Alan Freeman.

For their clash with Tyrone in the first semi-final (2pm), Kildare welcome back three players who had been absent due to county U21 commitments. Goalkeeper Mark Donnellan regains his place instead of Shane Connolly, while in the half-forward line Niall Kelly and Daniel Flynn take the places of Willie Groome and Eamonn Callaghan. Attacker Tomás O’Connor remains an absentee through injury for Kieran McGeeney’s side.

The Clare side for tomorrow’s Allianz Hurling League Division 1 relegation play-off with Cork in Limerick (3pm) will not be named until just before throw-in.
