Dublin's James McCarthy has returned to full training ahead of their upcoming All-Ireland quarter-final.

The wing-back missed the Leinster final win over Westmeath with a quad muscle injury and there were fears that he could be facing a lengthy lay-off as a result.

Manager Jim Gavin also said that he is hopeful that the player could be available for the quarter-final.

That match is scheduled for August 6th, although an opponent is unclear for now.

But it will be one of Cork, Donegal or Mayo.
