Allen Gaels Goalkeeper Diarmuid McKeirnan, Mohill midfielder Domhnall Flynn and Gortlettragh forward Jack Heslin will all make their championship debuts in Leitrim’s Connacht quarter-final against New York on Sunday.

Ten years after making his intercounty debut in the Bronx, Emlyn Mulligan has been named to start at centre-forward following his successful return from a cruciate knee injury, while captain Donal Wrynn starts at centre-back.

Glencar/Manorhamilton’s Paddy Maguire is named in the full-back line, with clubmate James Rooney set to start at wing-back.

Mohill pair Shane Quinn and Oisin Madden, and St Mary’s Michael McWeeney complete the defence.

Aughawillan’s Mark Plunkett partners Flynn in midfield, while Ryan O’Rourke starts alongside Heslin and Mulligan in the half-forward line.

Melvin Gaels’ Darragh Rooney starts in the full-forward line alongside Keith Beirne and Brendan Gallagher.

Ronan Kennedy is among the replacements, with Manorhamilton keeper Gary Hickey, and Melvin Gaels forward Cillian McGloin also in the squad.

Selector Seamus Quinn says the return to action of Mulligan, Kennedy and Maguire towards the end of the league was a big boost…

Cawley is yes, O'Connor on the bench. Musn't be 100% as he'd surely be starting otherwise.

Good to see Emlyn Mulligan back starting after what was his 3rd ACL injury? Paddy Maguire has been playing his club football in Dublin the last number of years i presume he will be given the tough task of keeping tabs on Jamie Clarke.

I think New York will Periscope this match if previous games are any indication. It will be worth a watch. Feels like an old school championship match with both teams’ seasons riding on this one game.
