STEPHEN CLUXTON HAS been named to start for Dublin in the Leinster SFC final against Louth on Sunday at Croke Park [Throw-in, 1.45pm].

The eight-time All-Ireland winner made a shock return to the squad in March ahead of their Division 2 meeting against the Wee County, having not appeared for the side since the 2020 All-Ireland final. He then started in Dublin’s Leinster semi-final win over Kildare as a late change to the team, and has now been named to start between the sticks for the provincial decider.

Cormac Costello has also been named to start at corner-forward with Ross McGarry dropping to the bench, while Jack McCaffrey is listed among the substitutes.
