'Tarf goal-den girl in Dub Stars panel

Ladies football

Clontarf's Siobhan Killeen is set to be one of the star attractions for a strong Dub Stars selection as they take on Mick Bohan's All-Ireland-winning team at the St Clare's pitch in DCU on January 13th (throw-in 1.30pm).

The Irish soccer international hit an amazing 5-4 against Emmet Og in last month's All-Ireland Intermediate Club Championship Final in Parnell Park and Bohan will no doubt be keeping a watchful eye on her as Dublin continue preparations for the their opening Lidl NFL Division 1 fixture against Donegal at the beginning of February.

Leading out the Dub Stars selection is six-time All-Star Sinead Goldrick on a team that also includes Niamh Collins, Lauren Magee and Olwen Carey.

Named at full forward, Niamh McEvoy (St Sylvester's) is joined on the Dub Stars panel by fellow locals Oonagh Whyte (Clann Mhuire) and Emer Ni Eafa (Fingallians).

Dub stars: Orlaith Higgins (Castleknock), Laura Carolan (Castleknock), Aoife Whelan (Castleknock), Ciara Burgess (Castleknock), Oonagh Whyte (Clann Mhuire), Kate McKenna (Clanna Gael Fontenoy), Sarah Fagan (Clontarf), Caoimhe O'Connor (Clontarf), Siobhan Killeen (Clontarf), Hannah McLoughlin (Clontarf), Eimear Loughlin (Cuala), Jennifer Dunne (Cuala), Emer Ni Eafa (Fingallians), Aisling Tarpey (Foxrock Cabinteely), Sinead Goldrick (Foxrock Cabinteely), Niamh Collins (Foxrock Cabinteely), Tarah O'Sullivan (Foxrock Cabinteely), Lorna Fusciardi (Foxrock Cabinteely), Sarah Quinn (Foxrock Cabinteely), Eabha Rutledge (Kilmacud Crokes), Lauren Magee (Kilmacud Crokes), Laura Quinn (Lucan Sarsfields), Ciara Purdy (Na Fianna), Emma Sherwood (St Brigids), Niamh McEvoy (St Sylvester's), Olwen Carey (Thomas Davis).
