Mayo could benefit from playing in empty grounds as much as anyone, believes former Dublin star Jason Sherlock.

Sherlock, who was part of Jim Gavin's team as the completed the historic 'Drive for Five' insists playing in front of empty stands will affect everyone differently but suggests that Mayo have both "embraced" the emotions of a full house and "suffered" from them.

"Going into environments without fans, that will be interesting because there are teams and systems that lend themselves to having a crowd behind them and support there," Sherlock said, at the launch of the Electric Ireland All-Ireland minor championships.

"But then there are other teams that could be playing anywhere and it doesn't impact them. Off the top of my head, the one I'd be interested in is Mayo - I think Mayo have probably embraced emotion but they've also suffered sometimes with the emotion of crowds and situations in games.

"It's about adapting to the scenario, to the situation, and I've no doubt Dublin will prepare as well as they can."
