Cork unchanged ahead of Dublin final clash

Cork have named an unchanged team for Sunday’s All-Ireland ladies football final against Dublin.

Cork unchanged ahead of Dublin final clash

Manager Eamonn Ryan has opted to keep faith with the same starting 15 as the semi-final win, Eimear Scally overlooked despite kicking 1-2 when introduced midway through the second-half against Kerry.

Corner-back Aisling Barrett, a member of the panel since 2009, is handed a first Croke Park start, as is Marie Ambrose, Ashling Hutchings, and Áine O’Sullivan.

The Dublin team, meanwhile, shows one change from the side that defeated Armagh earlier this month. Fiona Hudson comes in at corner-back for Kim Flood for the rematch of the 2014 decider.

Indeed, both teams show considerable personnel change from last year’s final; there are ten survivors on the Cork team, with nine on the Dublin side.

Cork: M O’Brien; M Ambrose, B Stack, A Barrett; V Foley, D O’Reilly, G O’Flynn; R Buckley, B Corkery; C O’Sullivan, A Hutchings, A Walsh; V Mulcahy, Á O’Sullivan, D O’Sullivan.

Dublin: C Trant; O Carey, M Ní Scanaill, F Hudson; S Furlong, S Finnegan, C Barrett; M Lamb, S Goldrick; N Healy, A Connolly, C Rowe; N McEvoy, L Davey, H Noonan.

Kildare (All-Ireland intermediate final v Waterford): R McGuirk; T Hallinan, A Savage, R Reidy: P Keatley, A Curley, L Furey; A Holton, J Timmins; E Connolly, R Byrne, G Clifford; E Dowling, M Moolick, T Duggan.

Waterford (All-Ireland intermediate final v Kildare): K Hannon; M Dunford, K McGrath, L Wall; E Murray, E Power, M McGrath; L Ryan, M Wall; H Landers, M Delahunty, A Wall; MK Morrissey, S Ryan, M Foley.
