Cillian O’Connor is set to make his first start of the year as Mayo take on Galway in Saturday evening’s huge qualifier clash in Limerick.
27-year-old O’Connor made his maiden appearance of the season during last weekend’s 2-13 to 1-15 win over Armagh - scoring 0-2 after coming off the bench on a tense evening in Castlebar.
But O’Connor - who underwent knee surgery at the end of last year - has been promoted to the starting line-up for Saturday’s Championship fixture at the Gaelic Grounds.
