Stephen Rochford has named the same team that defeated Kerry in the semi-final replay, while it shows 13 survivors from last year’s All-Ireland final replay defeat.

Castlebar Mitchels defender Durcan has impressed off the bench in recent games, kicking the equalising point in the drawn semi-final against Kerry. But he’ll have to be content with a place on the bench, as Rochford opts to employ the DCU student as an impact substitute.

Here’s how they’re set to start.


1. David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites)

2. Brendan Harrison (Aghamore)
3. Donal Vaughan (Ballinrobe)
4. Keith Higgins (Ballyhaunis)

5. Lee Keegan (Westport)
6. Chris Barrett (Belmullet)
7. Colm Boyle (Davitts)

8. Seamus O’Shea (Breaffy)
9. Tom Parsons (Charlestown)

10. Kevin McLoughlin (Knockmore)
11. Aidan O’Shea (Breaffy)
12. Diarmuid O’Connor (Ballintubber)

13. Jason Doherty (Burrishoole)
14. Cillian O’Connor (Ballintubber – captain)
15. Andy Moran (Ballaghaderreen)
