Share and Enjoy !

Cork and Mayo face off in an All-Ireland qualifier tomorrow evening in the Gaelic Grounds, Limerick. It is Mayo’s first visit to the Treaty venue since their infamous loss to Kerry in the 2014 All-Ireland semi-final.

Mayo come into the tie as hot favourites, after picking up wins over Derry and Clare to recover from their loss to Galway in the Connacht semi-final.

Cork are licking their wounds after the Munster final loss to Kerry, and Peadar Healy has made five changes to the side, with four switches in the forwards.

Colm O’Driscoll, Barry O’Driscoll, John O’Rourke and Donncha O’Connor come into the team, while Eoin Cadogan returns in defence.
