Ryan to start against Tipperary
Liam Ryan has been handed his first start of this summer’s championship in Sunday’s All-Ireland SHC semi-final against Tipperary in Croke Park (3.30).
The experienced O’Toole’s man comes into the team at full-forward and in the reshuffle Maurice O’Brien loses out.
Ryan, who captained Dublin to victory in this year’s Walsh Cup final against Kilkenny last February, started against both Wexford and Offaly in the Allianz NHL.
His last championship start was against Kilkenny in the 2010 Leinster SHC semi-final
Alan McCrabbe and Johnny McCaffrey will partner each other at midfield.
