GALWAY BOSS ANTHONY Cunningham has handed out three league debuts for Sunday’s clash with Dublin at Pearse Stadium.

Turloughmore’s Ronan Burke is named to start at full-back where he will be flanked by his clubmate Fergal Moore and Loughrea’s Johnny Coen.

In attack there are starts for Cathal Mannion at right half-forward and Jason Flynn at left corner-forward. Both Mannion and Flynn played for the Galway U21 side that lost last year’s All-Ireland semi-final to Clare while Flynn was on the starting side that won the 2011 All-Ireland minor title.

Galway have to plan without their Portumna contingent as they gear up for the All-Ireland club final on St Patrick’s Day while Niall Burke is ruled out through injury.

GALWAY: Colm Callanan (Kinvara); Fergal Moore (Turloughmore), Ronan Burke (Turloughmore), Johnny Coen (Loughrea); David Collins (Liam Mellowes), Iarla Tannian (Ardrahan), Aidan Harte (Gort); David Burke (St Thomas), Padraig Brehony (Tynagh Abbey-Duniry); Cathal Mannion (Ahascragh-Fohenagh), Jonathan Glynn (Ardrahan), Davy Glennon (Mullagh); Niall Healy (Craughwell), Conor Cooney (St Thomas), Jason Flynn (Tommy Larkins).
