Dublin v Monaghan
All Ireland Senior Football Semi Final
Saturday, July 15th. 5:30pm
Croke Park, Dublin

It comes as no surprise that the tweeks Dublin Senior Football manager Dessie Farrell made ahead of their Quarter Final victory over Mayo have remained firm as this weekend’s starting lineup. That being said, it would also not be a surprise if ther were some movement ahead of tomorrrow’s 5:30pm throw in.

It means Farrell again has the luxury of holding Jack McCaffrey, Ciaran Kilkenny and Dean Rock in reserve to be called upon in case they’re needed.

2 Weeks ago it was a seventh Championship victory over Mayo in the past 10 years, but the manner in which Dublin set out their stall and punished their opponents will have given every supporter a massive amount of confidence going into tomorrow’s Semi Final.

A raft of penalties were needed to seperate Monaghan and Armagh in their recent Quarter Final with the Farney men squeezing out the victory. They’ll come into tomorrow’s game as underdogs, which they’ll be more than happy with. They’ve made one change to their lineup with Ryan O’Toole coming in as an indirect replacement for Darren Hughes.
