Dublin manager Dessie Farrell has revealed his starting line-up for Sunday’s Leinster SFC quarter-final clash against Meath at Croke Park (4.30pm).

Having named his full 40-man panel earlier in the week, Farrell starts Ciaran Kilkenny alongside Tom Lahiff at centre-field with Brian Fenton currently suspended for the showdown with the Royals at HQ.

Con O’Callaghan leads the attack from full-forward flanked by Paddy Small and Colm Basquel, while Stephen Cluxton and Michael Fitzsimons – neither of whom featured in this year’s Allianz League campaign – are named among the substitutes.

Fellow nine-time All-Ireland winner James McCarthy is also named on the bench along with attackers Paul Mannion and Cormac Costello.
