Press Release

Mayo senior football manager James Horan has made one change to his starting fifteen ahead of their crucial All-Ireland Football Quarter-Final clash with Kerry this Sunday at 4:00pm in Croke Park.  The solidarity change sees Crossmolina Deel Rovers Jordan Flynn return to the team at wing-forward in place of Jason Doherty.  Flynn impressed off the bench against Kildare in Round 2 of the Qualifiers landing a late fortuitous goal in their 2-13 to 0-14 victory.  Horan has named the same six backs as last time out with Lee Keegan, Oisin Mullin and Enda Hession manning the full-back for consecutive games.  Keegan will reach another milestone in his illustrious career on Sunday making his 140th appearance for Mayo in both league and championship.  Paddy Durcan, captain Stephen Coen and Eoghan McLaughlin are named in the half-back line with Breaffy club mates Aidan O'Shea and Matthew Ruane now a formidable midfield partnership.  Upfront, Diarmuid O'Connor will now operate at centre-forward with Jordan Flynn and Conor Loftus on the wings.  James Carr, Jack Carney and Cillian O'Connor complete the Mayo full-forward line. Meath’s David Gough will be the man in the middle for Sunday’s All-Ireland senior football championship quarter-final clash between Mayo and Kerry. The game will be live on RTE and live commentary on Midwest Radio with Michael D McAndrew and Martin Carney.
