Dublin Minor Hurling Boss Fintan Clandillon, has today named his side for the start of this year’s Electric Ireland Leinster Minor Hurling Championship campaign.
It’s a brand new minor hurling team this year as none of the starting team began in last year’s All-Ireland semi-final clash against Limerick. Dublin were beaten that day having won the Leinster Championship.
Dublin’s selection does contain both Sean Currie and Ben Coffey who did enjoy Championship action in 2016.
Sean is a younger brother of Colin Currie who starred for the minor hurlers last year while his Na Fianna club-mate Kevin Burke is a younger brother of current Dublin senior Donal, who also impressed with Dublin’s minor hurlers in last year’s campaign.
Davy Keogh, who featured last year, is currently sidelined through injury while David Hawkshaw, also involved last summer, has rugby commitments.
Here is the Starting 15 that will face Laois in Parnell Park tomorrow.
