Diarmuid O’Connor is set for his championship debut at wing-forward with Sean O’Shea and Stephen O’Brien completing the half-forward line.

With Peter Crowley injured for the championship season, Keane has made plenty of changes in his defence with Tadhg Morley and Jason Foley named in the full-back line while Jack Sherwood moves to centre-back.
