Team Selection - O'Byrne Cup Final

Dublin name a strong 15 in their pursuit of their 1st ever back to back O'Byrne Cup victories. Seven changes have been made from the team which beat Carlow in the semi-final and seven changes from the NFL victory over Westmeath. With Mark Vaughan ineligible it will be interesting to see the free taking. John O'Brien kicked well against Carlow & the crowd will be behind him again Friday night. Good to see John Leonard getting more experience in goal while Eoghan O'Gara becomes the latest Templeogue Synge Street player to pull on a Dublin shirt.

Starting 15:

John Leonard (St. Sylvesters)

David Henry (Raheny) Ross McConnell (St. Oliver Plunketts) Stephen O'Shaughnessy (Lucan Sarsfields)

Philip McMahon (Ballymun Kickhams) Paul Casey (Lucan Sarsfields) Derek Murray (Round Towers Clondalkin)

Eamonn Fennell (O'Tooles) Shane Ryan (Naomh Mearnog)

Bryan Cullen (Skerries Harps) Alan Brogan (St. Oliver Plunketts) Brendan McManamon (St. Judes)

John O'Brien (Round Towers Clondalkin) Bernard Brogan (St. Oliver Plunketts) Kevin Bonner (St. Brigids)

Substitutes: Stephen Cluxton (Parnells), Niall O'Shea (St. Judes), Colin Moran (Ballyboden St. Endas), Declan Lally (St. Brigids), Paul Brogan (St. Oliver Plunketts), Barry Kennedy (Round Towers Clondalkin), Graham Cullen (Skerries Harps), Jason Sherlock (St. Oliver Plunketts), Eoghan O'Gara (Templeogue Synge Street ), Paul Flynn (Fingallians).
