TIPPERARY HAVE MADE no changes to their starting team ahead of Sunday’s All-Ireland senior hurling final against Kilkenny at Croke Park.

Manager Eamon O’Shea has kept faith in the side that beat Cork on a scoreline of 2-18 to 1-11 in the last month’s semi-final.

Darren Gleeson, Cathal Barrett, James Barry, Kieran Bergin and John O’Dwyer all play in their first senior All-Ireland final, in a starting team captained by Brendan Maher.

Seamus Callanan will once again lead the Premier County’s attack, hoping to repeat his performance against Cork, when he scored 2-4. Providing support will be O’Dwyer in the half-forward line, who collected six points against the Rebels last time out.
