Ray Connellan was big loss for Westmeath when went off injured. The 15 Dolan any relation of Dessie?

I don’t think so. He plays with Castledaly who are just a short spin from Garrycastle. You’d imagine he’d have played with Garrycastle if related to those Dolans. No parish rule in Westmeath.

Mayo team to play Clare:

Rob Hennelly;
Enda Hession, Oisin Mullin, Lee Keegan;
Rory Brickenden, Paddy Durcan, Stephen Coen;
 Matthew Ruane, Diarmuid O'Connor;
Fergal Boland, Darren McHale, Bryan Walsh;
Tommy Conroy, Cillian O'Connor, Ryan O'Donoghue.

Kildare team to play Meath:

Mark Donnellan;
Mark Dempsey, Mick O'Grady, Eoin Doyle;
Kevin Flynn, David Hyland, Ryan Houlihan;
Luke Flynn, Kevin Feely;
Fergal Conway, Neil Flynn, Paul Cribbin;
Jimmy Hyland, Daniel Flynn, Darragh Kirwan.

Carr misses out after scoring 2-1 from play , yet boland starts . Cant see what's happening in training i suppose . Eoin o Donoghue dropped for hession who looks about two stone too light for county yet .
Horan has been an absolute revelation for mayo football and will be long remembered for making us serious but I just dont get some of his line of thought at all . Defensive structure is so easily exposed because of no protection too . If he doesnt want to play a sweeper he cant allow Mullen and Keegan to push up , it's just bollix , how many goal chances do we giveaway every game . Its farcical in the sense its gung ho but shur let Mullen play further up the pitch then if that's your philosophy,  its like it's a cotradicion of sorts .

That team won't start larry.
Yes yet another Horan dummy team.  Kevin McLoughlin comes into the starting 15 in place of Fergal Boland and Aidan O’Shea comes in in place of Darren McHale
Is the ref going to finally blow his whistle?... No, he's going to blow his nose

Half time Clare 0-8 Mayo 2-13.  Was a competitive game until Mayo converted that penalty. Mayo fitness as good if not better than any Div 1 team this year. Cillian O'Connor went off injured towards the end of that half, no need to take chances when this game is already won.

Full time Clare 2-18 Mayo 2-22. Brave effort by Clare in that 2nd half, went down fighting. Mayo won't be too pleased by the defending especially the manner they conceded both goals.

Stephen Coen lying down smiling and then clutches the head. Too much of this nowadays from every team. Someday a player will be seriously injured and referee wont stop as think playacting is going on.

Didn’t get to see it but pretty brutal from us by all accounts. Not sure when Menton got injured and the sending offs happened but didn’t seem like we were in it at all. Disappointing to have such a poor performance after resting the lads for the Mayo game. Considering we’re not going to win Leinster this was a very important game for us and we’re not delivering. Not seeing the depth in the panel anymore. Offaly Louth Westmeath and Kildare could all stop us this year.
It won't be the next manager but the one after that Meath will become competitive again - MO'D 2016

Oh to be in Ulster or Connacht and genuinely believe you have a chance at provincial honours. Finished with a very young team today. Kildare's attitude was good, Meath look like they need to freshen up management. Old heads pulled them back into it and remarkable considering Kildare's dominance for 60 mins almost pulled something out of it but not what you want to see when trying to develop and build a squad. So many teams lie between 3rd ranked and 14th ranked that it would be an exciting championship if Dublin and Kerry didn't exist. Well maybe just Dublin.

Forget about Connacht been competitive.  The rossies,  Galway and Sligo beaten today. Mayo have the title in bag. Let Clare back into game in second half. Damage was done in first half.

More like Armagh was due a win against the rossies after losing the previous few games against them.

Kildare a funny side, plenty expected them to gain promoted to Div 1 last year and this year not as many people fancied them.  Mayos stay in Div 2 was short as expected. for all the talk of a "new" team Mayo still relying on the old guard and Clare only got back into that game after two of them (O'Connor brothers) was forced off with injuries

Div 2 next year looks very hard to call.

Galway,Roscommon,Meath,Clare,Down,Cork,Derry,Offaly
