Quinn and Brennan handed starting roles for U21HC semi-final
David Quinn and Ciarán Brennan come into the Dublin attack for Saturday’s Bord Gáis Energy All-Ireland under-21 hurling championship semi-final against Galway in O’Connor Park, Tullamore (6.0).
With Shane Stapleton and David Treacy both ruled out after suffering cruciate injuries recently Quinn, who scored a goal in the Leinster final victory over Wexford, returns to the team after starting against Kilkenny while for Faughs man Brennan it will be his first start.
The defence and midfield is the same as that which started against the Slaneysiders in the Leinster decider while Dublin also make some positional adjustments to their attack.
Saturday’s game is part of an U21 semi-final double-header with Tipperary facing Antrim in the opener (4.0).
