Twin brothers Eoin and Brian Roche are selected at corner-back and wing-forward, respectively, while Daire Connery, captain of the U17 side, is at midfield for the take which starts at 7pm tomorrow.
Tonight, the semi-finals of the Munster U17FC semi-finals take place. Kerry host Tipperary at Austin Stack Park while

Meanwhile, Cork claimed the Munster minor ladies football title with a 6-11 to 1-10 win over Kerry at Dr Crokes’ grounds yesterday. Saoirse Noonan had a hat-trick of goals inside 13 minutes, including two penalties, and Rachel Murphy also netted as they led 4-4 to 1-5 at half-time, Emma Dineen with the Kerry goal. Laura O’Mahony goaled in the second half before Noonan raised her fourth and Cork’s sixth green flag.
