James Horan wants replay moved from Limerick to Croke Park

Mayo and Kerry must do it all again

Published 24/08/2014 | 18:56

Mayo manager James Horan wants the GAA to postpone next Saturday’s All Ireland semi final replay and move it from the Gaelic Grounds in Limerick to Croke Park.

Mayo and Kerry played out a dramatic draw today and with GAA HQ unavailable next Saturday due to the Croke Park Classic – an American football college game between Penn State and UCF - the GAA took the unusual step to play the replay in Limerick but Horan will seek to change that.

In an enthralling All Ireland semi final, Mayo, who had Lee Keegan sent off in the first half, battled back from four points down at half-time to earn a deserved draw in Croke Park.

Indeed, James Horan’s men led by five points at one stage following a scintillating attacking display in the second half.

They were leading by four in the 68th minute when James O’Donoghue collected a pass from Kieran Donaghy and smashed the ball home to make it a one-point game.

Kieran O’Leary showed great composure when he fired over the equalising point and then the Kingdom missed two chances to win the match right at the end when.

O’Donoghue picked the ball up 40 yards from goal and made some space for himself but his left-footed shot grazed the side of the post and with the last kick of the game Bryan Sheehan saw his 60-yard free come up just short.

It had looked like it would be a routine win for Kerry when they went in at the break 0-9 to 0-4 up with a numerical advantage following Lee Keegan’s 33rd minute dismissal.

But Cillian O’Connor and Mayo had other ideas.

The Mayo forward was inspirational as he led the Mayo charge.
