Video: Dubs give league debut to Tyrone native Quinn

Published 01/02/2013 | 05:00

TYRONE native Paddy Quinn, who joined Na Fianna five years ago, will make his NFL debut for Dublin against Cork tomorrow after being selected at wing-forward in Jim Gavin's first league selection.

Former minor star Jack McCaffrey starts at wing-back and Declan O'Mahony partners Michael Darragh Macauley in midfield due to Denis Bastick's suspension.

Cork football manager Conor Counihan has given U-21 Damien Cahalane his first league start at wing-back.

Donegal are rolling out the big guns against Kildare, starting the season with 13 of their All-Ireland winning 15.

Footballer of the Year Karl Lacey (hip) and All Star midfielder Neil Gallagher (groin) are the only two missing, giving Declan Walsh and Martin McElhinney a chance to stake their claim in a formidable-looking line-up.

Meanwhile, Dublin hurlers' Walsh Cup quarter-final with Galway tomorrow has been moved from Parnell Park to St Peregrine's on Blakestown Road.
