Dubs make one change for U-21 final

Dublin have made on change in personnel for Sunday's All-Ireland Under-21 hurling final against Galway at Croke Park (throw-in 2pm).

Dublin have made on change in personnel for Sunday's All-Ireland Under-21 hurling final against Galway at Croke Park (throw-in 2pm).

Shane Durkin comes into the half-forward line with Joey Boland moving back to left half-back and Michael McGarry is the player to lose out in the reshuffle.

Durkin came on as a second half substitute in the Leinster final victory over Offaly and scored a marvellous point from the touchline as well as playing a prominent role in Peadar Carton's late, late goal.

However, he was not considered for selection for the semi-final victory over Derry owing to injury.

Carton has been included at right corner-forward after his appeal against an eight-week ban was upheld by the GAA's Central Appeals Committee on Tuesday night.

Dublin have never won an All-Ireland title at this grade and last competed in the final in 1972, when they ironically were beaten by their opponents this Sunday.

Tickets for Sunday's clash are available from usual GAA sources, www.gaa.ie, Ticketmaster outlets nationwide (tel: 0818-719300 or 0870-2434455) and ticket outlets around the ground on match day.

Tickets are also available from the Dublin County Board from 10am this morning.

DUBLIN (U21HC v Galway) - P Curtin; R Droomgoole, P Callaghan, D Webster; K Dunne, T Brady, J Boland; A McCrabbe, J McCaffrey (capt); E Moran, D Connolly, S Durkin; P Carton, D O'Dwyer, R O'Carroll.
