Mannion gets Dublin nod for Kerry semi


Dublin manager Jim Gavin has made a couple of changes for Sunday’s All-Ireland semi-final tie with Kerry at Croke Park with Paul Mannion coming in to beef up the attack.

Mannion caught the eye with a superb goal against Donegal in the quarter-finals, a solo effort which finally sealed the victory for the 13 men of the defending champions, and Kevin McManamon drops to the bench.

Having scored 0-3 from play in the victory over Donegal, and having famously turned the 2011 decider against the Kingdom with a brilliant individual effort, McManamon can feel unlucky to drop to the bench and will have to make do with hoping he can be have a big impact from the bench.

Denis Bastick has been given the nod in midfield ahead of Michael Darragh Macauley while James McCarthy’s return at wing-back has freed up Ciaran Kilkenny to move back up to the half-forward line, Paddy Andrews dropping down to the bench.

The match is a repeat of last year’s All-Ireland final which saw Dublin outclass their old foes, in play if not completely on the scoreboard, and the winners will face Mayo in next month’s decider.

Dublin: Stephen Cluxton; Philly McMahon, Jonny Cooper, David Byrne; James McCarthy, Cian O'Sullivan, John Small; Denis Bastick, Brian Fenton; Paul Flynn, Paul Mannion, Ciaran Kilkenny; Dean Rock, Diarmuid Connolly, Bernard Brogan.
