Mickey Conway tells a story about the 2015 All-Ireland quarter-final against Donegal, and the tactical curve ball thrown by Mayo’s managerial double-act of Pat Holmes and Noel Connelly.

Conway was back in Mayo’s match-day panel after an injury-blighted year but didn’t feature. Barry Moran was also listed in the subs but was sprung to start. Not, mind you, in his orthodox midfield role.
