Walsh left out of Galway side


Galway's Shane Walsh will sit out Saturday's Allianz Football League Division A clash with Mayo.

Walsh sustained a head injury in the defeat to Kerry and will not be risked at MacHale Park on Saturday.

Sean Kelly will also miss the game as a result of the hamstring injury he sustained last weekend, while Eamonn Brannigan will make his first start since last August's All-Ireland semi-final defeat to Dublin.

Brannigan will start in the forward line as does Padraic Cunningham.

Galway (SF v Mayo): R Lavelle; E Kerin, S O Ceallaigh, D Wynne; G O Donnell, G Bradshaw, J Heaney; T Flynn, K Duggan; M Daly, J Duane, E Brannigan; B McHugh, P Cunningham, A O Laoi.
