The team to play Armagh in the All-Ireland MFC quarter-final at Croke Park was named a few minutes ago. Enda Gilvarry and his selectors have made two changes to the side that started in the Connacht final, with Conor Kilkenny and Fionan Duffy coming into the side replacing Stephen Brennan and Conor Byrne respectively. There’s also two resultant positional switches, with Seamus Cunniffe moving to full-back (a position he held with distinction in last year’s All-Ireland winning team) while Barry Duffy shifts up to centre-back.
Full details of the team and subs named are as follows:
