There was confusion on the field at the final whistle after Justin Healy slotted over Mayo’s ninth point of the day - but according to the scoreboard it was their tenth, with the scoreboard operator putting up an extra point for Mayo after a free from Brendan Carr dropped in and was deflected over the bar by one of the rash of hands that went up to contest it.

Achill v Killala
Killala are looking to pick up their second Connacht junior championship in four years this Sunday in Dr Hyde Park, Roscommon when they take on Kilglass Gaels from Roscommon. The north Mayo men who claimed the Mayo title after a nail-biting final against The Neale saw off the challenge of Eslin from Leitrim in the sem-final, while their opponents received a walk-over to get to this stage, thanks to the Galway championship not being finished in time.
