McGarrity in for Mayo

Mayo manager John O'Mahony has named Ronan McGarrity in his starting line-up for Sunday's Connacht SFC final against neighbours Galway at Pearse Stadium (throw-in 4pm).

Mayo manager John O'Mahony has named Ronan McGarrity in his starting line-up for Sunday's Connacht SFC final against neighbours Galway at Pearse Stadium (throw-in 4pm).

McGarrity is pencilled in at midfield, although the participation of the Ballina Stephenites clubman is dependent on a late fitness test which will take place on Sunday morning.

The talented 27-year-old sustained a broken cheekbone while in action for his club in a Mayo Senior Football Championship clash with Crossmolina last Sunday week.

O'Mahony has just made one change to the side that started in last month's comfortable semi-final disposal of Roscommon at the newly redeveloped McHale Park.

Liam O'Malley will start in place of Donal Vaughan at right corner-back.

However, like McGarrity, O'Malley's involvement is also subject to a late fitness test on Sunday morning.

MAYO (SFC v Galway) - K O'Malley; L O'Malley, G Cafferkey, K Higgins; P Gardiner, T Howley, A Moran; D Heaney, R McGarrity; P Harte, T Mortimer (capt), A Dillon; A Kilcoyne, B Moran, A O'Shea.
