Team selection SHC Leinster Final vs. Kilkenny

Anthony Daly makes one change Sunday's Leinster Final matchup vs. Kilkenny. Liam Ryan comes in at number 11 replacing Peter Kelly.

It’s a big day for the senior hurlers and supporters must go out & give them every encouragement. As one young Dublin star of the future said, “I’ve never lost to a Kilkenny team & I don’t intend to start now”. It is with positive, not arrogant, attitudes like that that Dubs fans must recognise & encourage & make sure that the players are given every opportunity to succeed.

As mentioned in an earlier post Tim Berners Lee invented the WWW the last time Dublin reached a Leinster SHC Final. A Dublin win on Sunday would mean as much to the metropolitans as the web now means to Berners Lee.

1: Gary Maguire (Ballyboden St. Enda’s),

2: Niall Corcoran (Kilmacud Crokes), 3: Tomas Brady (Na Fianna), 4: Oisin Gough (Cuala),

13: David O'Callaghan (St. Mark’s), 14: Liam Rushe (St. Pat’s, Palmerstown), 15: David Treacy (Cuala).

Substitutes; 16: Alan Nolan (St. Brigid’s), 17: Phillip Brennan (O’Toole’s), 18: Maurice O'Brien (Faugh’s), 19: Derek O'Reilly (Craobh Chiairain), 20: Ger O'Meara (O’Toole’s), 21: David Curtin (Ballyboden St. Enda’s), 22: Peadar Carton (O’Toole’s), 23: Simon Lambert (Ballyboden St. Enda’s), 24: David Sweeney (Ballyboden St. Enda’s), 25: Ruairi Trainor (St. Vincent’s), 26: Peter Kelly (Lucan Sarsfield’s), 27: John Kelly (St. Mark’s), 28: Kevin Ryan (O’Toole’s), 29: Tim Sweeney Ballyboden St. Enda’s), 20: Ross O'Carroll (Kilmacud Crokes).
