We’re in Tullamore this afternoon for Dublin’s TG4 Senior Football Championship last eight clash with Kerry
Dublin v Kerry
Monday, August 5th. 4:45pm
O’Connor Park, Tullamore
Mick Bohan’s Senior Football panel certainly hit a groove during the initial two rounds of this year’s TG4 Championship. And after despatching both and Tipperary and Monaghan in straight forward fashion, they’ve set themselves up for a repeat of last year’s Quarter Final. Kerry will again be their opponents, the only difference is a change in venue.
While there may be fears of Dublin yet being fully tested, their dominant performance against Monaghan in the final round certainly cannot be dismissed.
Dublin and Kerry met last year, it was Dublin who chalked up a 3-19 to 1-07 victory over the Kingdom having previously beaten Kerry in 2017 at the semi-final stage by 5-10 to 0-11.
Top Dublin scorer in the championship Niamh McEvoy returns at centre forward having overcome a foot injury that kept her out of the Monaghan game while Jennifer Dunne is named to start at corner forward. Making way for McEvoy and Dunne are Oonagh Whyte and Niamh Hetherton.
The Dublin team for today boasts 12 of the 15 that started in last year’s win over Kerry. Absent are overseas travellers Leah Caffrey and Deirdre Murphy. And Nicole Owens, who up an injury during the warm up for the Monaghan game, also sits today’s game out.
