Twelve of the team that started last year's All-Ireland final will help Dublin launch the defence of the Sam Maguire Cup this weekend.

The Dubs face Louth at Croke Park on Sunday, with Kevin McManamon, who came off the bench to hit a crucial goal against Kerry last September, leading their attack.

The others to receive a call-up from manager Pat Gilroy are defender Philly McMahon and midfielder Eamon Fennell.
