A GALWAY ALL-Ireland U21 winner and a Kilkenny All-Ireland minor winner are part of the Dublin hurling squad for their 2017 opener in the Walsh Cup tonight.

Midfielder Donie Fox, a 2011 U21 winner with the Tribesmen, and attacker Canice Maher, a 2008 minor victor with the Cats, have both been given the chance to impress for Dublin by manager Ger Cunningham.

The duo both transferred to the St Judes club last year with Maher playing for Dublin and Fox lining out for the Dubs Stars in the annual New Years Day challenge last Sunday.

Tomás Connolly, brother of Dublin senior football star Diarmuid, is also involved while last year’s Leinster U21 winners Jonathan Tracey, Mark McCallion and Chris Bennett are also involved.

Throw-in for tonight’s game between Dublin and Carlow is 7.30pm
