Walsh gets full-forward slot for Rebels’ clash with Limerick

Aidan Walsh has been handed his first start for the Cork senior hurlers as they face Limerick in tomorrow night’s Division 1B league opener at Páirc Uí Rinn.

Walsh gets full-forward slot for  Rebels’ clash with Limerick

Walsh, who has already lined out with Brian Cuthbert’s footballers this spring, is selected at full-forward alongside Patrick Horgan and Stephen Moylan. Fellow dual star Eoin Cadogan is listed among the substitutes.

Manager Jimmy Barry-Murphy has named 10 of the side that started in last September’s All-Ireland final reply defeat to Clare. Shane O’Neill is selected in the right corner of defence with Stephen McDonnell moving to edge of the square. The other positional switch of note from that loss is Conor Lehane’s placing at wing-forward.

Stephen White, Killian Murphy, Rob O’Shea and Mark Ellis have all been given the nod to start, the former pair introduced as subs against Clare in the 2013 All-Ireland replay. Newcomers Michael Cahalane, Brian Lawton and Paul Haughney feature among the replacements.

Tipperary boss Eamon O’Shea has made seven changes to the team which captured the Waterford Crystal Cup for tomorrow’s visit of Waterford. Cathal Barrett, selected at right corner-back, is the sole league debutant.

O’Shea also revealed his 26-man squad for the league campaign last night, experienced pair John O’Brien and Paul Curran noticeable absentees.

Both O’Brien and Curran were prominent members of the 2010 All-Ireland winning team, but will not be involved this spring; it is understood Curran may require hip surgery while O’Brien has not featured in pre-season matches or during the Waterford Crystal Cup. Eoin Kelly and Lar Corbett are both listed.

Kerry, meanwhile, shade the representation for Sunday’s inter-provincial football semi-final at Connacht. Manager Ger O’Sullivan, forced to make do without the leading lights from Waterford, Clare, Tipperary and Limerick, has selected 13 Kerry players, two more than the number of Cork footballers picked.

Elsewhere, Kerry hurling boss Eamonn Kelly has enlisted the services of former All-Ireland winning manager Liam Sheedy. John O’Keefe, who was part of Sheedy’s 2010 All-Ireland winning panel, is also believed to have linked in with Kelly’s squad, having last featured in a Tipp shirt back in 2012.
