O'Donoghue is a lock in for me, maybe Limerick's most underrated player, Lynch ahead of Barron as he had little impact in Munster and All Ireland finals

Lynch and Kelly, if they're only being considered for Midfield roles.

Personally, I'd pick O'Donoghue alongside Lynch, and move Kelly to Half Forward.

I,d pick Kelly at corner forward,it's where he was named in most Clare teams in 2020..he has to be included in the team..if he's only nominated at midfield I'd pick him there..

As I've said before, Tony Kelly's face should be printed on money. Different gravy.

If we are picking midfielders Will O Donoghue was the best midfielder in the country all year, so in my opinion he should be guaranteed one, otherwise makes a mockery of even having positions.
Tony Kelly at 13 as a roving midfielder which is where he played all year.
Then between Lynch and Barron for second midfielder.

We're maybe outdated sticking to the traditional formation.

Tactics move on. Players - especially forwards - might play in four or five positions over a season.
