ST THOMAS ALL-Ireland senior club hurling winners Shane Cooney and Eanna Burke are both part of the Galway minor hurling side that face Laois in Sunday’s All-Ireland quarter-final tie.

Cooney started in that St Patrick’s Day triumph against Kilcormac-Killoughey while Burke – who had five older brothers involved in a team that was managed by his father John –  came on as a substitute.

Cooney has been named at centre-back for next Sunday’s game in Semple Stadium while Burke will play at midfield.

Both players were involved when Galway lost out in the All-Ireland minor semi-final against Tipperary last August.

Galway can also call upon corner-back Maidhc O Conghaile, full-back Darragh O’Donoghue, midfielder Darragh Dolan, centre-forward Ronan O’Meara and corner-forward Brian Molloy who all started in that 2-16 to 1-14 defeat in Croke Park against the Premier County.

Wing-backs Sean Linnane and Richard Doyle and wing-forward Adrian Morrissey were all amongst the substitutes on that Galway side.

GALWAY: Cathal Tuohy; Maidhc O Conghaile, Darragh O’Donoghue, Michael Conneely; Sean Linnane, Shane Cooney, Richard Doyle; Eanna Burke, Darragh Dolan; Adrian Morrissey, Ronan O’Meara, Conor Whelan; Brian Molloy, Brian Burke, Conor Shaughnessy.

The Galway subsitutes have also been named for the game.

Subs: Vincent Doyle, Dermot O Halloran, Conor Jennings, Ronan Bellew, Eamonn Brannigan, Jack Hastings, Aidan Helebert, Shane Burle, Kevin McHugo.
