Shields has been named at centre-back for the Páirc Uí Rinn tie after missing the opening round games against Mayo and Donegal.

Eoin Cadogan also returns to anchor the defence at full-back having been absent for the Donegal game after the injury he suffered in a collision with Lee Keegan in Mayo’s opening tie.
