Cody makes three changes as Cats ready to tear into Offaly

Lester Ryan’s inclusion at midfield allows Pádraig Walsh to move to the half-back line, where he replaces Joey Holden, with no room for his brother Tommy Walsh.

Richie Hogan partners Lester Ryan at midfield, with Michael Fennelly starting at centre-forward. Walter Walsh and Eoin Larkin replace the injured Richie Power and Henry Shefflin in attack.

Bill Cooper comes in at centre-forward in the only change to the Cork side for Sunday’s Munster SHC quarter-final replay with Waterford in Thurles (throw-in 3.30pm).

The Youghal man replaced Cian McCarthy at half-time in the drawn game two weeks ago, scoring 1-1. That change is replicated as Cork manager Jimmy Barry-Murphy keeps faith with the rest of the side which began the first game.

Meanwhile, Kerry manager Eamonn Fitzmaurice’s injury crisis continues to grow ahead of the Munster SFC semi-final with either Clare or Waterford, on June 22.

Marc Ó Sé left the field before the end of West Kerry’s SFC loss to Milltown/Castlemaine on Wednesday. News of his injury is awaited.

It has been confirmed attacker James O’Donoghue sprained an AC joint at training on Tuesday while midfielder Johnny Buckley sustained an ankle problem in Dr Crokes’ club championship loss to Rathmore on Sunday.

Buckley’s clubmate Daithí Casey suffered a dead leg in that game but he should be okay for the game with Kenmare on Sunday. Another midfielder, David Moran, is ruled out of his club Kerins O’Rahillys’ game this weekend after suffering a knee injury.
