Declan Lally Starts Wing Forward Versus Carlow in O'Byrne Cup Semi-Final - Thu, 17 Jan 2008
Best of Luck to Declan Lally this Saturday versus Carlow in the O'Byrne Cup Semi-Final. Declan retains his wing forward position after an impressive display line against Westmeath.
Dublin have made four changes to their team for Saturday's O'Byrne Cup semi-final against Carlow in Parnell Park (5.0).
Shane Ryan is ruled out having picked up a hamstring injury in last Saturday's ten-point victory over Westmeath and is replaced at midfield by Paul Flynn, who moves out from corner-forward. 2008 team captain, Alan Brogan, comes in a No 15.
In the other switches Stephen Cluxton takes over again in goal from John Leonard while Philip McMahon replaces Derek Murray at right half-back.
McMahon was selected to start in last Saturday's game but as he had played for Ballymun Kickhams' under-21s in Championship action earlier that afternoon he was 'rested'.
The final alteration sees Round Towers, Clondalkin's John O'Brien lead the attack with Pat Burke being displaced to the bench. The team contains five St Oliver Plunkett's/Eoghan Ruadh players.
Carlow, with talented forward Simon Rea impressing, defeated Wexford 1-13 to 0-11 on Tuesday night.
Dublin (SF v Carlow): S Cluxton; N O'Shea, R McConnell, S O'Shaughnessy; P McMahon, C Moran, P Brogan; P Flynn, E Fennell; D Lally, J O'Brien, B Brogan; J Sherlock, D O'Mahony, A Brogan. Subs: J Leonard, P Casey, D Henry, D Murray, B Cullen, D Ryan, B Kennedy, P Burke.
