TG4 Leinster Senior Championship Round 2

Dublin v Meath

Saturday May7th

Parnell Park

Throw-In: 7pm


Mick Bohan has named his Dublin team selection for Saturday evenings big TG4 Leinster Senior championship clash with reigning All Ireland and division one league champions Meath in Parnell Park.

Despite Dublin’s thirty seven point win over Westmeath last weekend the Sky Blues management have made six changes to this weekends starting line-up.

Coming into the side are Abbey Shiels in goal in place of Ciara Trant, Ellen Gribben and Martha Byrne replace Niamh Collins and Aoife Kane in the defence. Kate McDaid comes into the Dublin engine room in place of Lauren Magee and up front Kate Sullivan and Lyndsey Davey replace Dublin’s two top scorers last weekend, Carla Rowe and Hannah Tyrrell.

The two teams last met back at the start of March in the Lidl National Football league in Páirc Tailteann in Navan in an exciting and full blooded encounter which Dublin won thanks to a late injury time converted free from Hannah Tyrell.

Tomorrow’s encounter is expected to be another eagerly contested and close affair from these two great rivals, particularly with the possibility of the two teams meeting again in the Leinster final and possibly further down the road in the All Ireland series.
