Offaly's Colin Egan
Belmont's Colin Egan will make his Leinster SHC debut for Offaly against Dublin at Croke Park on Sunday.

A club-mate of full back David Kenny, Egan has been named at left half forward in a team which is notable for the absence of the injured quartet of James Rigney, David Franks, Paul Cleary and Joe Brady, while former captain Brendan Murphy is unavailable due to work commitments.

On the plus side, Derek Molloy, Joe Bergin and Daniel Currams have shaken off recent knocks to make manager Joe Dooley's starting XV.

Offaly (SH v Dublin): J Dempsey; M Verney, D Kenny, S Egan; D Hayden, R Hanniffy, D Morkam; C Mahon, D Molloy; B Carroll, G Healion, C Egan; S Dooley, J Bergin, D Currams.
