Team news: Dublin and Mayo reveal selections for LIVE eir sport clash

THE weekend gets off to a cracking start with the meeting of Mayo and Dublin, a fixture that will be televised LIVE on eir sport (Saturday, 5pm, Elvery’s MacHale Park, Castlebar).

Dublin are three from three in Division 1 this year but Mayo have been motoring nicely too, and the green and red have collected two wins from their three games.

The only blip so far was defeat to Kerry but Peter Leahy’s charges hit back last time out with an impressive victory against a fancied Galway outfit at Pearse Stadium in Salthill.

It’s the first time that the Mayo ladies will have the chance to appear on a Castlebar double-bill alongside their male counterparts and they certainly won’t lack for motivation.

An added factor to throw into the mix is the fact that this is the first time the counties have clashed since last September’s memorable TG4 All-Ireland senior final, when the Sky Blues came with a strong final quarter to claim victory.

Dublin have never won a Division 1 title but they appear to have their sights set on glory this year.

Their 100 per cent record will come under threat from the fired-up hosts, however, and a titanic battle lies in store.
