Clarke Knew How Dublin Felt Last Year but There'll Be Little Sympathy Today


Byline: Philip Lanigan

With Pat Gilroy's newlook Dublin travelling to Castlebar for a topof-the-table National League clash, Mayo goalkeeper David Clarke hardly needs to be reminded that one of his best days in a county jersey came against the same opposition.
