Lidl NFL Division 1 


Galway v Mayo; Duggan Park, Ballinasloe, 3.15pm – Live on TG4  


Galway and Mayo meet for the first time in a competitive game since the 2023 TG4 All-Ireland quarter-final, won by Mayo with a dramatic late point from Shauna Howley.

Both Connacht rivals began their Division 1 campaigns with defeats on the opening day.

Galway lost out to Cork in Bishopstown, as Mayo came up short against Meath in a high-scoring encounter at the University of Galway Connacht GAA Air Dome.

The pressure is on both sides now to pick up valuable Lidl National League points, with the bottom two teams in Divisions 1, 2 and 3 set for relegation this year.

Mayo narrowly avoided the drop in 2023 and they’ll be anxious to ensure there are no similar worries this time, while Galway contested last year’s top flight Final against Kerry.

Both Galway and Mayo have named unchanged starting line-ups for this Connacht derby.


Galway: D Gower; M Jordan, S Ní Loingsigh, E Gavin; K Geraghty, C Trill, A Ní Cheallaigh; M Glynn, L Coen; M Walsh, A Davoren (capt.), S Hynes; C McCarthy, A O’Rourke, A Molloy.


Mayo: L Reid; L Wallace, N O’Malley, S Lally (capt.); K Sullivan, D Caldwell, J Mortimer; A Geraghty, H Reape; F McLaughlin, A Fitzpatrick, M Cannon; T Needham, F McHale, L Cafferky.
