ALL-IRELAND CLUB star Michael Lundy is back in the Galway starting team for Sunday’s Connacht championship quarter-final against Leitrim.

Lundy was outstanding in Corofin’s run to honours on St Patrick’s Day last and he is named to start at wing-forward for the clash in Carrick-on-Shannon.

Lundy’s inclusion is one of two changes from the team that defeated New York in Galway’s opening round clash.

Brian O’Donoghue gets the nod to start in goal by manager Kevin Walsh. Tom Healy and Eddie Hoare are the players to make way.

Throw-in at Páirc Sean MacDiarmada is 3.30pm on Sunday.
