Leitrim name unchanged team for Roscommon test

Leitrim boss Brendan Guckian has named an unchanged starting 15 for Sunday’s Connacht semi-final against Roscommon at Dr Hyde Park.

It means that Dean McGovern retains his place at centre-half-forward having come in to the team at the expense of Jack Heslin before the quarter-final defeat of London three weeks ago.

Ronan Kennedy will once again start among the substitutes, despite scoring two goals after coming off the bench in the London tie.

Darragh Rooney, Oisin Madden, Ryan O’Rourke and Keith Beirne retain their places having made their Connacht Championship debuts in Ruislip.

Manager Brendan Guckian says he was pleased by the team’s efforts in England…

1   Brendan Flynn     Gaeil Liatroma
