Lidl NFL Division 1A: 


Galway v Mayo; Tuam Stadium  

With this fixture rained off last weekend, Donegal took the chance to cement top spot with victory over Westmeath.  

That now leaves the Division 1A table in a position where victory for Mayo at Tuam Stadium would see them join Donegal in the top-flight semi-finals.  

A win for Galway, however, would put the cat among the pigeons and leave the pool delicately poised ahead of the final round of games.  

Galway lost out to Donegal by three points in their opening game, while Mayo enjoyed a big win over Westmeath.  

There’s plenty riding on this one as Galway stick with the same team that was named for the postponed fixture, meaning starts for Fabienne Cooney and Linda Booth, with Shauna Brennan and Kate Slevin dropping to the bench.  

Mayo are unchanged after the Westmeath game, as the sides prepare for a repeat of the 2021 TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship quarter-final, which Mayo won by four points.  

Mayo (v Galway): Aisling Tarpey; Éilis Ronayne (capt.), Sherin El Massry, Saoirse Lally; Tamara O’Connor, Fiona McHale, Nicola Hession; Sinead Cafferky, Aoife Geraghty; Sarah Mulvihill, Lisa Cafferky, Shauna Howley; Rachel Baynes, Ciara Whyte, Maria Reilly.
