Westport's Mark Moran is set to make his first Championship start for Mayo in Sunday's Connacht Senior Football final.

He replaces Ryan O'Donoghue in James Horan's half-forward line for the clash with Galway.

It's the only change from the side that beat Roscommon in last week's semi-final, when Moran replaced O'Donoghue off the bench.

Moran first caught the wider public's attention by scoring 1-2 in a 3-23 to 0-17 win over Galway in the penultimate round of Division 1 of the Allianz Football League in October.

1. David Clarke (Ballina Stephenites)

2. Oisín Mullin (Kilmaine)
