Cork Senior Hurling manager Denis Walsh has made three changes to his side from the one which lost to Tipperary in the Munster SHC, for this Saturday's All-Ireland hurling qualifier against Offaly at O'Connor Park, Tullamore.

In midfield, Tom Kenny is partnered by Sarsfields' Tadhg Og Murphy with Jerry O'Connor moving to wing-forward.

O'Connor is one of three changes among the Rebels attack, with his brother Ben moving to left-corner-forward

Meanwhile Pa Cronin replaces Niall McCarthy at centre-half-forward.
