Clare and Sligo prepare for Tommy Murphy Cup

Clare and Sligo face off today in the inaugural Tommy Murphy Cup final at Croke Park.

Clare and Sligo face off today in the inaugural Tommy Murphy Cup final at Croke Park.

The competition, the brainchild of GAA President Sean Kelly, has seen withdrawals from several sides this year and in the end, only four teams were left to contest the semi-finals.

Sligo will be looking for revenge of sorts against the Banner, after the Yeats County fell foul of Clare in the senior championship qualifiers.

Sligo keep faith with the team that defeated Antrim in the semi-final.

Meanwhile, Clare's Noel Griffin and Stephen Hickey replace Brian Considine and Donal O'Sullivan respectively, as the duo have failed to recover from injury.

CLARE (v Sligo): D O'Brien; P Gallagher, C Whelan, D Blake; A Clohessy, N Griffin, R Flattery; David Russell, G Quinlan; Denis Russell, S Hickey, M O'Shea; E Coughlan, O O'Dwyer, R Donnelly.

SLIGO (v Clare): J Curran; C Neary, N Clancy, N Carew; R Keane, N Maguire, K O'Neill; G Maye, S Davey; B Curran, P Taylor, K Quinn; J McPartland, D Sloyan, A Marren.
