Ireland managers Willie Maher and Conor Phelan have named the squad for the annual Hurling Shinty international against Scotland which takes place in Abbottstown in Dublin this Saturday. 

The senior team is largely dominated by players who competed in the Joe McDonagh Cup in 2019, with Ryan Mullaney and Willie Dunphy selected after rip-roaring campaigns for the victorious Laois team, who went on to stun Dublin in the preliminary quarter-final in Portlaoise. 

Westmeath's Joey Boyle is another player who shone in this year's Joe McDonagh campaign who lines out this Saturday. 

The team will be captained by Donegal's Danny Cullen and the senior game gets underway in the National Games Development Centre at 2pm.

Ireland are without a win in the contest since 2014 with the Scots chasing a fifth successive victory.  

Senior team 

Brian Tracey (Carlow), Mikey Boyle (Kerry), Joey Boyle (Westmeath), Damian Casey (Tyrone), Danny Cullen (Donegal), Mark Delaney (KIldare), Paul Divilly (Kildare), Michael Doyle (Carlow), Willie Dunphy (Laois), Cillian Egan (Roscommon), Alan Grant (Derry), Damien Healy (Meath), Cillian Kiely (Offaly), Shane McGovern (Westmeath), Ryan Mullaney (Laois), Shane Nolan (Kerry), Gerard O'Kelly-Lynch (Sligo), Keith Raymond (Sligo), Caolan Taggart (Down), Seán Whelan (Carlow).
