Mayo name team for All-Ireland final with Dublin
Mayo manager Stephen Rochford has named his side for Sunday's All-Ireland final with Dublin.
Rochford has kept faith with the same side that prevailed over Kerry in last month's All-Ireland semi-final replay with three-time All Star defender Colm Boyle set to make his 90th appearance for the Westerners.
Rochford has made some big selection decisions in recent years, most notably deciding to drop All Star goalkeeper David Clarke for last year's All-Ireland final replay.
Rochford said earlier this week that he accepts that criticism for such decisions are part of the job.
"You understand you are out there every week, you are under the microscope, you are in a situation whereby your performance is evaluated on Monday morning by a result," said Rochford.
"I would ask you to show me any other profession, and this isn't even a profession, where you have got journalists, pundits, analysts, evaluating your performance on a weekly basis.
"I don't see politicians, solicitors, whatever it is, getting that kind of scrutiny. And the narrative can change from week to week, depending on a result."
