Galway pair 'ready' for action

GALWAY manager Anthony Cunningham has declared Iarla Tannian and Joseph Cooney "okay and ready for action," ahead of Saturday's Leinster SHC quarter-final replay with Dublin in Tullamore (4.45), writes Conor McKeon.

Tannian suffered what Cunningham described immediately after the drawn game as "a touch of concussion," in a collision with Ryan O'Dwyer.

Cooney was taken off with a dead leg in the second half but both are, according to Cunningham, clear to play in a match that will be shown live on RTÉ2.

The second game in O'Connor Park - Kildare's clash with Laois in the Leinster football Championship - will be the first of this summer's GAA games to be shown live by Sky Sports.

Dublin, meanwhile, are likely to be without Peter Kelly, who suffered a hamstring injury in the drawn match, with Michael Carton the most likely to come in.
