Michael Cassidy in the half back line, Declan McClure at midfield and Cahir McCullagh at wing half forward will make their senior bow for the first time at Breffni Park.

If Ronan McHugh and Harry Loughran are introduced, they will also make their senior debut for the O’Neill County.

Peter Harte, Darren McCurry, Ronan O’Neill, Tiernan McCann and Niall Morgan are just some of the regulars that will also feature on Sunday.
