THE TEAMS THAT will start tomorrow’s All-Ireland senior football final between Mayo and Tyrone at Croke Park (5pm) have been announced.

Tyrone joint-managers Feargal Logan and Brian Dooher have selected the same side that overcame Kerry after extra-time in their semi-final.

Mayo boss James Horan has made two personnel changes to his team after they dethroned champions Dublin to reach this weekend’s decider.

Enda Hession is drafted into the half-back line to replace the injured Eoghan McLaughlin, while Darren McHale makes way in the half-forward line for Bryan Walsh.

Captain Aidan O’Shea moves from full-forward to centre-forward for the Connacht champions, with Tyrone skipper Pádraig Hampsey leading the Ulster champions once again from corner-back.

Oisin Mullin, who missed the semi-final through injury, is not named in the Mayo team. Tyrone have again omitted Cathal McShane, who came off the bench to hit 1-3 against Kerry.
