Dual star Keith Higgins has been named captain of the Mayo hurling team.
Mayo hurlers were promoted last year and begin their Division 2B season against Roscommon on Sunday.
Higgins’ teammate Shane Morley said: “He has a lot of commitments and it’s hard to keep everyone happy but he does a pretty good job at it.
“Even when he’s training with the footballers, he does one night with us and he always keeps his touch in. He is hugely committed and I’m sure he will be a fine captain.”
