Fanning back for Louth
Mick Fanning has answered the call of Louth and has returned from abroad to face Carlow in Sunday's Leinster SFC clash at Dr Cullen Park.
Fanning was one of three Louth stars to leave the country in search of employment, but he will be back in his familiar centre half back spot this weekend.
Manager Peter Fitzpatrick has named three debutants in his side for the provincial opener.
Richie McCarthy, Sean Tobin and Kevin Downes will all get their first taste of championship football on Sunday.
