Walshe aggravated a hamstring injury playing for his club recently and has not been training; he has been replaced at corner-back by Kieran Duffy.

Derry have made just one change for their Division 1 final with Dublin, replacing injured wing-back Sean Leo McGoldrick with Aidan McAlynn.

None of Cavan's four-in-a-row Ulster-winning U-21s have been included by senior manager Terry Hyland in his team for tomorrow's Division 3 football final against Roscommon.

Meanwhile, Tipperary U-21s Steven O'Brien, Michael Quinlivan and Ian Fahey return to their senior starters for tomorrow's Division 4 final with Clare.

Cork senior football manager Brian Cuthbert has only included one of their U-21s, half-back Kevin Crowley, on his 28-man panel for the championship. Four senior players who featured during the league – John McLoughlin, Kevin O'Driscoll, Micheal O Laoire and Alan Cronin Jr – have been omitted.
