Barry keeps faith with Meath side

Meath manager Eamonn Barry has named an unchanged side for tomorrow's O'Byrne Cup semi-final showdown with Dublin at Parnell Park.

Meath manager Eamonn Barry has named an unchanged side for tomorrow's O'Byrne Cup semi-final showdown with Dublin at Parnell Park.

Dunsany attacker Conor Brennan was brought in at full-forward for last weekend's 0-18 to 1-11 defeat of neighbours Westmeath, and he keeps his place.

Mairtin Doran, who kicked an impressive five points in the quarter-final win, remains at left corner forward.

The midfield partnership of Anthony Moyles (Blackhall) and Kilmainham's Barry Lynch is retained, with 1999 All-Ireland winner Nigel Crawford having to wait for his first start of the new season.

Interestingly, Royals boss Barry and Dublin manager Paul Caffrey both work as Gardai in the Store Street Garda Station in Dublin's city centre.

MEATH (v Dublin): R Nolan; D Kealy, T O’Connor, C King; D Clarke, J Donohue, S Kenny; B Lynch, A Moyles; P Curran, J Sheridan, S McInerney; D Regan, C Brennan, M Doran.
