DUBLIN MANAGER MATTIE Kenny has named his side for tomorrow’s All-Ireland SHC preliminary quarter-final against Laois.

The Sky Blues make the trip to O’Moore Park, Portlaoise [throw-in 4.15pm] and there are two changes to the starting side that sensationally saw off 2017 All-Ireland champions Galway at Parnell Park last time out. 

They’ll take to the field tomorrow without their in-form full-back Eoghan O’Donnell after he picked up an injury against the Tribesmen. Ballyboden St Enda’s James Madden starts in his place with Shane Barrett donning the number three jersey.

Ronan Hayes starts at full-forward with Liam Rushe making way.

Eddie Brennan named his Laois side last night, and it shows just one change from their triumphant Joe McDonagh final with Joe Phelan replacing Donnchadh Hartnett.

Dublin and Laois last met in championship action in 2017 with the former winning an All-Ireland SHC qualifier tie by 13 points.
