Jim Gavin has named his Dublin starting fifteen to face Tyrone in Sunday’s All-Ireland SFC semi-final at Croke Park.
The burning question all week was surrounding Diarmuid Connolly – the St. Vincents man is once again available for selection having served his suspension for pushing a linesman, but debate had been widespread as to whether Connolly should be placed straight back into the team or not.
Well, that question has been answered – Connolly is not in the starting lineup. He will instead have to make to with a place on the bench.

Instead, Gavin has opted to pick the same fifteen that started in the 1-19 to 0-12 victory over Monaghan in the semi-finals. Indeed the only change of any kind is a positional one, Jack McCaffrey and Eric Lowndes swapping roles.
Dublin are aiming to reach their fourth All-Ireland final in five years, with the winners of Sunday’s clash facing the winners of Kerry and Mayo’s replayed game at Croke Park on Saturday afternoon.
