Longford ring the changes for clash with Cork

THE Longford team to play Cork at Páirc Uí Rinn on Saturday night shows two changes in personnel and a number of positional switches from the team which lost to Mayo in their previous outing.

Full back Cathal Conefry, who was substituted after 15 minutes against the westerners, has been replaced by John Kenny while Michael Kelly comes in for Jamesie Martin at right half back.

David Hannify moves from centre back to midfield, and Ian Keenan from midfield to right corner forward. Cork and Longford last met in the league in 1991.

Limerick make three changes from the team which lost to Galway last Sunday for the visit of Meath.

John McCarthy replaces Denis Sheehan at full back; Stephen Kelly comes in for Padraig Browne, while Mark Keane takes over at full forward for John Murphy. Conor Mullane moves to right half back from left half forward.

Tipperary, who are performing well in Division 2B of the football league, make three changes from the team which defeated Louth, for the visit of Wicklow on Sunday.

Sean Collum returns after suspension and takes over the full back berth from Liam Cronin. Fergal O'Callaghan is recalled to midfield in place of Eamon Hanrahan while Paul Cahill comes in at right corner forward. Gene Buckley moves from right corner forward to right half back with Cian Maher the player to lose out.

The Derry selectors have kept faith with the team which trounced Waterford last Sunday for their home tie with Antrim.

Meanwhile, Ollie Moran, Niall Moran, Seán McDonagh, team captain Ciarán Carey, Peter Lawlor, and Brian Geary have all been ruled out of the Limerick team for the NHL game with Offaly.
