Mannion, Bastick and McCarthy named in Dublin team to take on Kerry
Jim Gavin has made three changes from the side that lined out against Donegal.

DUBLIN FORWARD PAUL Mannion has been rewarded for his stunning goal against Donegal in the All-Ireland quarter-final with a starting spot for tomorrow’s semi against Kerry in Croke Park (3.30 throw-in).

The Kilmacud Crokes man scored a contender for goal of the season after being introduced as a substitute three weeks ago and he has been named at centre half-forward, and is one of three changes in personnel to Jim Gavin’s side.

Denis Bastick is named at midfield in place of Michael Darragh Macauley while James McCarthy is once again named at wing-back, although he didn’t end up featuring against Donegal as he continues his recovery from a knee injury.

Paddy Andrews and Kevin McManamon are the others to drop out of Gavin’s starting XV although it remains to be seen if that’s how they will line out tomorrow afternoon.
