Louth Junior team manager Ollie McDonnell has revealed his 24 man squad for the upcoming Leinster championship campaign to the Dundalk Democrat.
The Reds take on Longford at Glennon Brothers Pearse Park next Wednesday night in the provincial quarter-final.
With new regulations having been put in place, any player who played senior club championship in Louth last year are unable to represent Louth at junior level in 2017.
