GARRYMORE’S ENDA HESSION will make his Mayo senior debut in tomorrow’s National Football League Division 2 North opener against Down (2pm).
James Horan had tipped the former county minor captain to make the step up to senior this season, and Hession starts at right corner-back in MacHale Park tomorrow.
Rory Brickenden, who featured in last winter’s championship, starts at wing-back in what will be his first league appearance.
But there is no place in the starting XV for Aidan O’Shea who suffered a knee injury scare in training last month.
Scans ruled out the initial fears that O’Shea may have damaged his anterior cruciate ligament, but Mayo have yet to offer a definitive timeline for his return.
Meanwhile, Fergal Lohan and Brian Dooher have named the first Tyrone team of the post-Mickey Harte era as they take on Donegal tomorrow evening (5pm).
Dungannon Clarkes’ Paul Donaghy makes his senior debut for the Red Hand at wing-forward.
