Tipperary boss Raymie Ryan, gunning for the county's fifth All-Ireland camogie title in six years, has recalled Premier captain Joanne Ryan for Sunday's decider against Cork (3.30pm).

Tipperary boss Raymie Ryan, gunning for the county's fifth All-Ireland camogie title in six years, has recalled Premier captain Joanne Ryan for Sunday's decider against Cork (3.30pm).

The Drom-Inch attacker, who came off the bench in last month's 1-10 to 2-5 semi-final victory over Wexford, replaces Emily Hayden at centre-half forward.

Whereas Cork have named 10 of their starters from the 2003 final, which ended 2-11 to 1-11 in Tipp's favour, Ryan's charges have just two Croke Park debutants amongst their side. Seventeen year-old corner back Julie Kirwan and Saudi Arabian-born forward Kill Horan, their leading markswoman on 3-9 so far, will be making their senior debuts at Croke Park.

So far this season, it's 1-1 in the sides' meetings - Cork defeated Tipp 3-7 to 1-6 in the league, whilst Ryan got the better of first-time boss John Considine in the Munster final, but by only a single point.

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