Counihan names Cork starting line-up

Cork manager Conor Counihan has made just one change to his side for this Sunday's GAA Munster SFC Final against Limerick at Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

Cork manager Conor Counihan has made just one change to his side for this Sunday's GAA Munster SFC Final against Limerick at Pairc Ui Chaoimh.

John Miskella has been cleared to retain his place in the half-back line, despite a spate of injuries in recent weeks.

The Ballincollig player suffered a recurrence of a hamstring injury early in the second half of the game with Kerry.

Miskella again aggravated an old knee injury when in club action recently, but he has been deemed fit enough to take a place in the starting fifteen for this weekend's provincial show-piece against Limerick.

Miskella's inclusion means that Kieran O'Connor replaces the suspended Noel O'Leary at wing-back.

Cork (Munster SFC Final v Limerick): A Quirke; R Carey, M Shields, A Lynch; J Miskella, G Canty (Capt), K O'Connor; A O'Connor, N Murphy; P Kelly, P O'Neill, P Kerrigan; D Goulding, J Masters, D O'Connor.
