Sweeney back to bolster Dublin midfield

DAVID SWEENEY returns to the Dublin team for Sunday’s NHL Division 2 final against Kerry at Semple Stadium, Thurles.

Aodhan de Paor makes way as Sweeney returns to midfield after missing games against Carlow and Westmeath as he was abroad.

Kilkenny will not name their team to play Limerick in the Division 1 final at the same venue until tonight, but full-back Noel Hickey and forwards Henry Shefflin and Ritchie Power are certain to be included.

Both Cork and Laois have announced unchanged sides for their All-Ireland U-21 football semi-final replay at Limerick on Saturday.

Meanwhile, Healy Park, Omagh, will host its first floodlit game next week. The new lighting will illuminate the season’s opening action in the Tyrone club championship.

It was felt the lights would not be used for competitive action until the autumn. However, a rescheduling of the preliminary round of the WJ Dolan Tyrone Senior Football Championship means the Omagh venue will stage the first two games of the series on May 5. Donaghmore will take on Loughmacrory and Killyclogher will face Pomeroy.
