Breaffy powerhouse Aidan O'Shea is named at corner forward with Tommy Conroy getting consecutive starts on the edge of the small square at full forward. CLG Béal an Mhuirthead sharpshooter Ryan O'Donoghue is listed to start at top of the right for Mayo. Aidan O Shea will make 84th championship appearance, which equals Andy Moran's Mayo record.
