Niamh Hetherton handed starting role for Jackies

Dublin manager Mick Bohan has made two changes in personnel for Sunday’s pivotal Lidl Ladies NFL Division 1 clash with Galway.

A repeat of the 2019 TG4 All-Ireland senior final between the counties will be played at DCU St Clare’s (1.0), on the 3G pitch there, and Dublin will be without 2018 TG4 All Star Lauren Magee, who was injured in the defeat to Cork last time out.

Magee is replaced in the starting line-up by Niamh Hetherton, while Laura Kane is handed a start in place of Kate Sullivan.

Galway, who have bounced back from their opening day loss against Waterford to record successive victories, are unchanged from the team that accounted for Donegal in Round 3.

This is a crucial fixture as Galway are currently second in the Division 1 standings behind pace-setters Cork, with six points, and two ahead of Dublin.

DUBLIN (v Galway): C Trant; É Rutledge, M Ní Scanaill, M Byrne; N Collins, L Caffrey, O Nolan; J Dunne, N Hetherton; N Sweeney, C Rowe, L Kane; H O’Neill, S Woods, C O’Connor.
GALWAY (v Dublin): L Diskin; N Connolly, S Lynch, S Molloy; C Cooney, F Cooney, L Coen; O Divilly, A Davoren; A Trill, T Leonard, L Noone; L Hannon, S Conneally, R Leonard.
