Another interesting angle to this All-Ireland semi-final is the story of Tooreen captain, Stephen Coyne. Last year Stephen put his life in Australia on hold to come home to Tooreen to help them win a County Final and go on to become the first Mayo club to win a Connacht hurling title.
He's made that long journey home once again to lead them into battle this weekend. This is their story.
