Not sure about Mc Connell- i think Bastic might be a better option in the sense he'll put himself around more-both will get a chance though.
Vaughan and bernard Brogan should both get arun.
Christie back to full back.
Connolly hasn't played Dublin 21's yet- let him do that first

Atleat Mc Connel will stay on the pitch for 70 minutes how many times did Bastic get sent off?
Anyway, long story short... is a phrase whose origins are complicated and rambling.

Looking forward to this game, will definitely make the journey up for such an historic moment.

Dubs-Tyrone will light up Croker

The GAA has confirmed that the Dublin versus Tyrone National League tie on Saturday, 3 February, will mark the inaugural switching on of the new Croke Park floodlights.

GAA chiefs have also revealed that the Irish government has stumped up EUR3.65 million to go towards the cost of lighting up Headquarters.

"A grant of EUR3.65 million has been allocated by the Department of Arts, Sports & Tourism towards the cost of installing floodlighting in Croke Park," read a GAA statement.

President Nickey Brennan has said that the installation of the floodlighting was necessary to facilitate the International games scheduled for at the venue next year, but would also be used on occasion for Gaelic games.

The second game to be held under lights at the Jones' Road ground will be the Ireland and France Six Nations rugby international, a week later, on 11 February.

According to the GAA statement Brennan was "delighted that the Minister had recognised the burden of cost to the GAA in installing the floodlighting in the context of facilitating Rugby and Soccer for Internationals while Lansdowne Road was closed due to redevelopment."

The Kilkenny native also expressed the Association's appreciation for grants of EUR1m apiece for training pitches in Louth and Monaghan and a further EUR750, 000 for a facility in Meath.

Semple Stadium in Thurles has also benefited to the tune of EUR500, 000 for re-development work, while this aid is on top of EUR1m, which has already been allocated to the Tipperary stadium.
