Dublin & Galway Name Sides For TG4 All-Ireland Final

Dublin and Galway have both named their sides for Sunday’s TG4 All-Ireland senior ladies football final in Croke Park.

Dublin manager Mick Bohan has made two changes to the side that defeated Cork in their semi-final with former Footballer of the Year Noelle Healy due to start alongside Cuala youngster Jennifer Dunne.

Healy makes way for Clontarf teenager Niamh Hetherton who she replaced at half-time against Cork when Dublin went on to qualify for their sixth successive final. Nicole Owens is the other player to make way after she underwent knee surgery.

Meanwhile, Tim Rabbitt has named an unchanged Galway side from their semi-final victory over rivals Mayo in Croke Park.

Galway are back in the All-Ireland decider following a 14-year absence and will look to bridge a 15-year gap by collecting the Brendan Martin Cup. That last win in 2004 came against Dublin who still boast three members of that squad on their current panel, namely, Sinéad Aherne, Lyndsey Davey and Siobhán McGrath.
