UPDATE MONDAY 22nd: Stephen Burke played the full game at centre half-forward for the minors and was very impressive. They defeated Roscommon so it’s a Connacht minor medal for him.
Donie Vaughan came on for the seniors in the second-half of their win over London. Congrats to him too: onwards and upwards for both teams now.
Stephen Burke is the only Ballinrobe man who will start in either of tomorrow’s two Connacht finals – he lines out centre half-forward in the minor game against Roscommon.
This is Stephen’s first start in this championship and a reward for excellent performances coming off the bench.
Injury has claimed two of our three senior panellists – Kenneth O’Malley and Alan Murphy, which must be very disappointing for both men.
Donal Vaughan is not named in the Mayo team. He has also been suffering from injury of late but hopefully he will be able to make an appearance.
We wish all our players and their families and enjoyable and hopefully triumhpant day tomorrow.
