Tullow Tank trains sights on Carlow footballers

The Tullow man, who is currently injured with a dislocated shoulder, was on the sideline for Carlow’s O’Byrne Cup game against Athlone IT in Dr Cullen Park last Wednesday night.

County chairman Michael Meaney said: “He will be a general motivational coach. When Seán was recovering from injury a few years ago he trained with Carlow. He is a passionate Carlow man.”

Meanwhile, Kerry will be able to call on Paul Galvin and Peter Crowley from the bench for tomorrow’s McGrath Cup semi-final against CIT at the John Mitchels GAA Complex.

Brendan Kealy and Barry John Keane, who impressed as a replacement against IT Tralee, are the two starting changes from last weekend. They replace Brian Kelly and Shane O’Callaghan respectively.

Kenmare forward Stephen O’Brien, black-carded in the quarter-final, gets another opportunity to impress management.

Tyrone manager Mickey Harte has made 11 changes to his team for tomorrow’s Dr McKenna Cup clash with Queen’s University.

The Red Hands made a winning start to the pre-season competition by beating Donegal, but Harte has brought in another host of new faces for the Healy Park meeting with the students.

There are debuts for defenders Michael Gallagher, and Kevin Campbell, along with attackers Patrick Quinn, PJ Lavery and Danny McNulty.

The only survivors from the team that started against Donegal last weekend are wing-backs Ciaran McGinley and Tiernan McCann and midfielders Niall McKenna and Conan Grugan.
