HURLING: Galway under 20 Team versus Dublin Announced

Galway have 13 players available who saw game time in last year’s Leinster championship defeat to Kilkenny, 11 of whom will start on Saturday.
They can also call on Tiernan Killeen and Gavin Lee this year- they were unavailable last year as they had, by then, played senior championship for Galway.

Liam Leen and Diarmuid Davoren form the midfield pairing while upfront Gavin Lee, Liam Collins and Colm Molloy are among the capable forward unit at Galway’s disposal.
The aforementioned trio of Tiernan Killeen, Gavin Lee and Liam Collins as well as Sean O’Hanlon have all played in the National Hurling League for Galway this year while Greg Thomas saw action with the Galway seniors in 2022.
