Cork make three changes for Donegal trip

CORK have made three changes from the team which thrashed Dublin for the trip to Ballyshannon on Sunday to play Donegal in their final league game.

Diarmuid Duggan comes in for the ill Gary Murphy, and is named at full-back, with Niall Geary reverting to the right corner.

The other two changes see Philip Clifford getting his first start at right corner-forward in place of Kevin O’Sullivan, while Colin Crowley takes over from Micheál Ó Croinín in the other corner.

Armagh manager Joe Kernan will have two sons playing against Limerick in the Allianz National Football League at Crossmaglen on Sunday.

Stephen will start at left half-forward while Aaron has been promoted to first team duty in place of Andrew McCann at left half-back.

Owen Mulligan is back in the Tyrone team for Sunday’s trip to Killarney and a clash with Kerry that will decide the league semi-final line-up.

But skipper Brian Dooher, who missed last weekend’s win over Westmeath due to flu, is still laid low.

Mulligan, who came on as a sub in Mullingar and showed no adverse reaction to recent hamstring trouble, comes in at full-forward, with Leo Meenan the player to lose out.

The only other change sees John Devine return in goal at the expense of Pascal McConnell.

There are five changes on the Mayo team from the side that lost to Kerry in Castlebar for the home game against Westmeath next Sunday.

Conor Mortimer, Alan Roche, Pat Harte, Austin O’Malley and John Prenty replace Gary Mullins, James Nallen, Aidan Kilcoyne, Alan Dillon and Trevor Mortimer respectively.

For their crucial relegation battle with Armagh at Crossmaglen on Sunday, Limerick have called up Stephen Lucey for his first start of the season.

The Croom man has been out with injury since last season but was introduced as a sub during last Sunday’s victory over Sligo.

He joins John Quane at midfield, with John Galvin taking over at full- forward position in the absence of the suspended Eoin Keating. Muiris Gavin, who limped out of last week’s game with a leg injury, has been passed fit to play.

The Tipperary team to play Derry shows three changes from the side that failed to Antrim last time out.

Peter King replaces Niall Kelly at left corner-back; Padraig Foley replaces Paul Cahill at left half-forward, while Damien O’Brien is preferred to David Byrne at left corner-forward.

Galway will be without the very promising Niall Coleman for their game with Down at Pearse Stadium on Sunday. Coleman damaged his shoulder in last weekend’s victory over Wexford and will also miss out on Galway’s clash with Mayo in the Connacht Under-21 final, scheduled for Saturday week next.

The Cork vocational team to play Mayo tomorrow in the All-Ireland football semi-final at Rosslevin (Ennis), shows one change from the side that beat Kerry in the Munster final.

Michael O’Regan, who was unavailable for the provincial decider, returns to goal in place of Daniel O’Leary.

Sligo are in the middle of an injury crisis ahead of Sunday’s Allianz National Football League Division 1B game against Kildare in Newbridge.

At least five of their key players are sidelined through injury, although Dara McGarty has a 50/50 chance of playing.

Eamon O’Hara, John McPartland, Brian Curran and Adrian Marren are all out.

Cullen and Marren picked up injuries in the Connacht U-21 championship game against Galway last weekend and they could be out for more than a month.

O’Hara is a major worry ahead of the championship game against Leitrim. The midfielder twisted an ankle in training a couple of weeks ago and sustained ligament damage.

The team is expected to be named after training tonight.
