The returning Brian Murphy is one of three changes to the Cork side for Sunday’s Munster SHC semi-final with Waterford in Thurles.

Brian Murphy returns as Cork make three changes for Waterford clash

Murphy, who retired after the 2013 championship, was persuaded to come back to the set-up by manager Jimmy Barry-Murphy and is named at left corner-back.

Aidan Ryan, who was full-back in the Allianz HL Division 1 final loss to the Déise at the same venue five weeks ago, loses out as Stephen McDonnell moves to full-back.

In the half-back line, Damien Cahalane comes in for Lorcán McLoughlin, who is ruled out through a shoulder injury.

Left half-back Cormac Murphy is selected for his championship debut.

Séamus Harnedy had been a worry with a hamstring problem but he has been passed fit to start at centre-forward.

That means Luke O’Farrell for Robert O’Shea is the only other change, with Conor Lehane moving from full-forward to number 10 to accommodate his Midleton clubmate.

In the curtain-raiser at Thurles, Cork face Waterford in the Munster intermediate championship with a 2pm throw-in and, with Cork having won the All-Ireland last year, manager Ronan Dwane has to assemble a brand-new panel.

Captain Kevin Kavanagh of Carrigaline, who is at right half-back, and left half-forward Michael Collins (Ballinhassig), were both U21s last year.

Collins’ clubmate Fintan O’Leary was previously a part of the senior panel.

Full-back Brendan Rogers of Slaughtneil is the only debutant on the Derry side to face Down in Celtic Park at 2pm. Niall Holly, who featured at full-back during the league, makes his first championship start, partnering Fergal Doherty at midfield.
