Mayo seek home comforts

Having lost out in the TG4 Connacht Final to Galway, Mayo will be anxious to get their group campaign off to a positive start on home soil.

Manager Michael Moyles has made two changes in personnel from that outing, with Sorcha McCarney and Tara Needham coming into the starting line-up ahead of Tamara O'Connor and Ciara Whyte.

Tipperary, without players of the calibre of Aishling Moloney, Aisling McCarthy and Orla O’Dwyer, survived in Division 2 of the Lidl National League but lost out to Kerry in the TG4 Munster semi-final.

The Premier County will be up against it here, as 2021 semi-finalists Mayo aim to make home advantage count.

Mayo: A Tarpey; É Ronayne, D Caldwell, S Lally; C Needham, F McHale, K Sullivan (c); S Cafferky, S McCarney; A Geraghty, S Walsh, S Mulvihill; L Cafferky, T Needham, S Howley.

Tipperary: L Fitzpatrick; E Moore, M Curley (c), E Cronin; L Spillane, Niamh Martin, M Murphy; C O’Dwyer, C English; Nora Martin, M Creedon, E Kelly; C Hennessy, L O’Shea, E Morrissey.

Dublin look to build on Leinster success

Dublin begin the TG4 All-Ireland series on a high, having seen off the challenge of Meath in the recent Leinster Final.

Manager Mick Bohan has shuffled his pack ahead of the clash with Cavan, making four changes in personnel.

There are starts for co-captains Niamh Collins and Carla Rowe, with Lauren Magee and former skipper Sinéad Aherne also set to line out.

Dropping out of the team for this one are Orlagh Nolan, Jennifer Dunne, Sinead Wylde and Nicole Owens.

Opponents Cavan were well beaten by Donegal in their last outing, a TG4 Ulster semi-final.

Manager Gerry Moane also opts for four changes to his starting line-up, with Kate McIntyre, Erin Longair, Annie Deneher and Aisling Walls coming in for Rachel Doonan, Zara Fay, Emma Halton and Geraldine Sheridan.

Dublin: C Trant; J Tobin, L Caffrey, N Collins; A Kane, M Byrne, S Goldrick; L Magee, K McDaid; C O’Connor, C Rowe (c), K Sullivan; L Davey, H Tyrrell, S Aherne.

Cavan: E Walsh; K McIntyre, S Lynch, E Longair; S Greene, L Fitzpatrick (c), M Sheridan; N Byrd, A Deneher; N Keenaghan, L McVeety, A Walls; G Smith, Á Reilly, A Gilsenan.

Monaghan face All-Ireland champions

A huge day for Monaghan as they welcome the 2021 TG4 All-Ireland Senior Champions to Drumhowan.

Manager Kieran Kearns rings the changes following a heavy Ulster semi-final loss to Armagh, with Kerry Nolan, Colleen Jones, Caoimhe Brennan, Laura Carey and Hannah Sherlock all coming into the side.

Monaghan will need a massive performance to compete with Meath, who lost out narrowly to Dublin in the Leinster final.

The Royals, who scooped the 2022 Lidl NFL Division 1 title, will be determined to embark on another big championship run and they have gone with an unchanged starting line-up.

Meath and Monaghan are in Group B alongside Armagh, the reigning Ulster champions, and this is a crucial opening fixture for both sides.

Monaghan: O Kelly; S Brady, A McCarey, K Nolan; C Jones, R Courtney (c), C Brennan; J Drury, L Jones; E Clerkin, C Treanor, A Garland; L Garland, L Carey, H Sherlock.

Meath: M McGuirk; S Ennis (c), MK Lynch, O Duff; N Gallogly, E Troy, A Cleary; M O’Shaughnessy, O Lally; M Thynne, E Duggan, A Leahy; V Wall, S Grimes, N O’Sullivan.

Kerry seeking revenge against Galway

In a brilliant game at Cusack Park, Ennis, in the 2021 championship, Galway narrowly beat Kerry by a point.

The counties are in the same group again for the 2022 campaign and both are in decent form.

Kerry lifted the Lidl NFL Division 2 title before contesting a Munster final against Cork, as Galway landed the Connacht crown with victory over local rivals Mayo.

In a three-team group with Westmeath, both counties are tipped to advance but there will be no holding back here.

Galway make two changes to the side that defeated Mayo, with Mairead Seoighe and Lynsey Noone coming in for Lara Finnegan and Ailish Morrissey in attack.

From the Munster Final loss, there’s just one switch on the Kerry team, with Aoife Dillane replacing Ciara O’Brien in the full-back line.

Kerry: C Butler; É Lynch, K Cronin, A Dillane; A O’Connell, E Costello, C Murphy; C Lynch, A Galvin (c); D O’Leary, N Carmody, L Scanlon; N Ní Chonchúir, E McGlynn, L Ní Mhuircheartaigh.

Galway: A Griffin; S Molloy, S Ní Loingsigh (c), E Gavin; C Cooney, N Ward, K Geraghty; A Davoren, L Ward; L Coen, A Trill, M Seoighe; L Noone, O Divilly, T Leonard.

Must-win for Waterford and Donegal

Donegal are a team to watch in the 2022 TG4 All-Ireland Senior Championship – but they’re smarting from recent big game defeats.

Donegal contested the Lidl NFL Division 1 Final against Meath but lost out in that one, before suffering defeat to Armagh in the Ulster decider.

In a group that also contains Cork, this is a massive fixture for both counties, with Waterford aiming to show that they’ve improved form their Munster semi-final loss to Cork.

Manager Pat Sullivan has named an unchanged starting team, as Donegal boss Maxi Curran makes one change, with Karen Guthrie coming in for Roisin Rodgers.

Waterford: E Gallagher; R Casey, M Dunford, Kate McGrath; C McGrath, L Mulcahy, Karen McGrath (c); E Murray, H Power; B McMaugh, K Hogan, A O’Neill; K Murray, A Mullaney, A Murray.

Donegal: R McCafferty; N Carr, E McGinley, T Kennedy; S Twohig, Nicole McLaughlin, A Boyle Carr; K Herron, Niamh McLaughlin (c); Y Bonner, N Hegarty, S White; B McLaughlin, K Guthrie, G McLaughlin.
