Michael Hurley has been named at in attack in the only change to the Cork side for this evening’s Electric Ireland Munster MFC semi-final with Tipperary in Semple Stadium (7.30).
Hurley, who missed Cork’s previous games — a draw and a win against Kerry — due to a thumb injury, is named at corner-forward, with Michael Cahalane moving to full-forward and Aidan Moynihan dropping to the bench.
Tipperary full-back James Feehan is ruled out through injury, and Danny Owens moves across from number 2 to replace him, with Michael Connolly coming into the team. Paul Shanahan replaces the injured Michael Meagher at right half-forward.
Ciarán Lowry comes in on the other wing and Liam Casey moves from there to midfield.
The other semi-final sees Kerry host Waterford at Fitzgerald Stadium (7pm). Kerry manager Mickey Ned O’Sullivan has made three changes from the six-point win over the Banner.
Cian O’Connor takes over from Kevin Shanahan alongside Kieran Murphy at midfield, and Micheál Burns is named in the half-forward line as Conor Jordan misses out. Éanna Ó Conchúir, who missed the Clare clash due to injury, comes back in for Shane O’Connor at full-forward.
Pádraig Ó Conchúir goes from corner-back to centre-back, with Fionán Clifford dropping back from number 7. Greg Horan is at wing-forward and David Fordan is selected at left half-back.
Waterford have made two changes in personnel. Michael Shine comes into the side at right half-back in place of Jamie Barron, while dual player Kevin Daly is named at full-forward.
