Dublin have made three changes to their starting fifteen for their Lidl NFL Round 2 meeting with Galway this Sunday in Tuam Stadium.

Coming into the Dublin starting fifteen are goalkeeper Abby Shiels who replaces Emer Ní Éafa and Roisin Baker brought into the Dublin Senior set-up after her fine performances for Na Fianna in the club championship, replaces the injured Hannah Crowley at corner back.

In attack Caoimhe O’Connor who was introduced at half-time in last weekends encounter with Meath replaces Kate Sullivan.

Dublin and Galway last met in the Lidl NFL back in 2020 with the tribeswomen coming out on top that day on a scoreline of 4-06 to 2-06.

Galway have named an unchanged side for this weekends clash after seeing off the challenge of Donegal last week and have been further bolstered by the return of Olivia Divilly, Ailish Morrissey, sisters Eva and Hannah Noone, and the Ward twins, Louise and Nicola to the squad.

Dublin manager Mick Bohan will, like last weekend, be hoping for another big impact from his bench as he continues to piece together his new look squad, Chloe Darby, Kerri Owens and Shannon Richardson all contributed to the scoreboard when introduced last weekend against Meath and they will once again look to impress Bohan on Sunday if called upon.

Sunday’s fascinating Lidl NFL Round 2 encounter will be broadcast LIVE on the LGFA streaming portal. For more information on how to subscribe to the service please click this link https://bit.ly/3k9k8CB
