Shane Donoghue has been named in the Athenry team to face Tipperary and Munster champions Toomevara in Saturday's All-Ireland club hurling semi-final in Ennis.

The defender last week had a six-month ban lifted on appeal, after incurring the punishment for an incident during a fractious county quarter-final defeat of Loughrea.

Diamuid Cloonan returns at full-back, having been absent for the victory over Cork last week in a challenge game, while his brother Eugene, who scored a whopping 2-12 against the All-Ireland champions, is named at full-forward.

ATHENRY (SH v Toomevara): M Crimmons; T Kelly, D Cloonan, J Feeney; B Higgins, B Feeney, S Donoghue; B Hanley, L Howley; J Rabbitte, MJ Quinn, E Caulfield; D Moran, E Cloonan, D Donoghue.
