Team named to play Kerry + Minor and LGFA team news

We’ve just named our team for Sunday’s All-Ireland quarter-final against Kerry. Here it is:

Mayo (All-Ireland SFC quarter-final v Kerry, 26/6/2022): Rob Hennelly (Breaffy); Lee Keegan (Westport), Oisín Mullin (Kilmaine), Enda Hession (Garrymore); Paddy Durcan (Castlebar Mitchels), Stephen Coen (Hollymoint/Carramore, captain), Eoghan McLaughlin (Westport); Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy), Matthew Ruane (Breaffy); Jordan Flynn (Crossmolina Deel Rovers), Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber), Conor Loftus (Crossmolina Deel Rovers); James Carr (Ardagh), Jack Carney (Kilmeena), Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber).

So it’s just one change from the team that lined out against Kildare the last day. Into the starting fifteen comes fit-again Jordan Flynn – who came off the bench for the Kildare game and scored that astonishing injury-time goal – and he replaces Jason Doherty.

The last time we played Kerry was, of course, the National League final in early April. The team we’ve named for Sunday shows six changes from then.

Rory Byrne, Padraig O’Hora, Michael Plunkett (injured), Rory Brickenden, Jason Doherty and Ryan O’Donoghue (injured – but I guess we won’t know the full story there until Sunday) all started in the League decider but aren’t included in the team for Sunday. The six who are named in the team for Sunday’s game but didn’t start in the League final are Rob Hennelly, Oisín Mullin, Paddy Durcan, Eoghan McLaughlin, Diarmuid O’Connor and Cillian O’Connor (who came on as a sub that day).

We haven’t named our list of subs as yet and that’s a list that’ll be keenly analysed whenever it does appear, not least as regards whether or not it features Ryan O’Donoghue.

Kerry haven’t named their team yet but, according to Kerry GAA, they’re due to do so at 8pm this evening.

We made two other team announcements earlier on today so here they are.

First the Minors, who play Kerry in tomorrow’s All-Ireland MFC semi-final at O’Connor Park in Tullamore:

Kerry also named their team for this game and you’ll find details on that here.

Next the women footballers, who play Dublin in O’Moore Park, Portlaoise, tomorrow evening (throw-in 7.15m). Here’s the team we’ve named for that game:

The best of luck to all three Mayo teams named today and, of course, to the Masters – who play Dublin tomorrow – as well. Up Mayo.
