The Setanta Sports website team have picked
. There’s a few changes from
the Sunday Game team.
Donal Og Cusack in goals ? I find that a bit odd, especially given he was sent off before half time against Galway.
Backs and Midfield are the same. They mention that they were close to giving the corner back to Shane O’Neill to Cork instead of Jackie Tyrell, which would have been fair enough, he did have a great year.
They have Seamus Callinan at centre forward as opposed to Ben O’Connor for the Sunday Game and they have John Mullane at corner forward as opposed to Eoin Kelly. I totally agree with the last one - if there’s only room for one of Mullane or Kelly then it has to be Mullane for his never give up attitude and his respectable performance in the All Ireland.
Their team is
Donal Og Cusack
Michael Kavanagh, Noel Hickey, Jackie Tyrell
Tommy Walsh, Conor O’Mahoney, JJ Delaney
James Fitzpatrick, Shane McGrath
Henry Shefflin, Seamus Callinan, Eoin Larkin
Eddie Brennan, Joe Canning, John Mullane
