All-Ireland camogie champions Tipperary have made a number of changes to their side for Sunday's Foras na Gaeilge decider against Cork (Croke Park, throw-in 3.15pm).

Cashel star Philly Fogarty has been brought in at midfield to partner Angie McDermott, with Emily Hayden the player to miss out.

2004 team captain Joanne Ryan switches to left half-forward, with Noelle Kennedy in at centre and Claire Grogan on the opposite wing.

At left corner forward, Geraldine Kinnane makes way for Jill Horan, who has been flying back and forth throughout the year while on a soccer scholarship in Detroit.

The talented Horan was born in Saudi Arabia and played in last year's 2-11 to 0-09 final triumph over Cork.

This is the fourth year in a row that the Munster rivals have met each other in the All-Ireland camogie final.

Tipp, now managed by Paddy McCormack, are looking to secure the Premier county's sixth O'Duffy Cup in seven years, as well as a third All-Ireland success on the trot.

Notably, the spine of their 1999-winning team remains on with captain Deirdre Hughes, an inspirational full-forward, the only modern day player selected on camogie's "Team of the Century."

McCormack's side were 1-13 to 1-08 semi-final winners over Wexford last month, and will need an improvement to see off the Rebelettes.

Tipperary (SCC v Cork): J Delaney; S Kelly, U O'Dwyer, J Kirwan; S Nealon, C Gaynor, T Brophy; P Fogarty, A McDermott; J Ryan, N Kennedy, C Grogan; E McDonnell, D Hughes (Capt), J Horan.
