Dublin and Cork have named their teams to start in the TG4 All-Ireland Senior Football Championship final on Sunday. 

Dubs boss Mick Bohan has made one change to his side for the Croke Park clash that has a 3.30 pm start.

Niamh McEvoy replaces Sarah McCaffrey at full-forward.

The St. Sylvesters clubwoman came on for McCaffrey at half-time in their semi-final win over Armagh.

Skipper Sinéad Aherne is named in the starting line-up, despite sustaining a hamstring injury which forced the St Sylvester’s star off in the first half of the Armagh win.

12 players who started Dublin's 2019 All-Ireland win over Galway get the nod again with Leah Caffrey, Noelle Healy and Nicole Owens replacing Éabha Rutledge, Olwen Carey and Hannah O’Neill.

Meanwhile, Cork manager Ephie Fitzgerald has gone with the same starting 15 that beat Galway at the last four stage.

Erika O’Shea and Eimear Kiely are set to line out in an All-Ireland senior final for the first time.

Sunday will mark Dublin's seventh straight final with the Girls in Blue going for a fourth successive victory.

The side's met in the 2018 decider - Cork's first time to lose an All-Ireland- which Dublin won by five points.
