MAYO boss James Horan has named the same team that beat Tyrone for Sunday’s All-Ireland SFC final against Dublin which means that Cillian O’Connor has been named in their starters.

The Ballintubber man who is Mayo’s topscorer and the two in-a-row Young Player of the Year, has been a serious doubt after dislocating his shoulder against Tyrone, a recurring injury with which he has previously had problems.

But O’Connor has returned to training and reportedly played in an A v B internal training match last weekend and it remains to be seen if Mayo actually start him or hold him in reserve. No substitutes have yet been named.

Mayo (SF v Dublin) – R Hennelly; T Cunniffe, G Cafferkey, C Barrett; L Keegan, D Vaughan, C Boyle; A O’Shea, S O’Shea; K McLoughlin, K Higgins, A Dillon; C O’Connor, A Freeman, A Moran (Capt).
