DUBLIN HAVE LOOKED very impressive in seeing off last year’s All-Ireland finalists in the opening two rounds of the league, but Jimmy Barry-Murphy will hope his Cork side can succeed where Tipperary and Kilkenny failed at Croke Park this Saturday evening.

Ger Cunningham’s side shows two changes in personnel from the team that started their round-two win against the Cats. Niall McMorrow replaces Simon Lambert at midfield and Ryan O’Dwyer comes in for Colm Cronin at wing-forward.

2. Cian O’Callaghan (Cuala)
3. Michael Carton (O’Toole’s)
4. Paul Schutte (Cuala)

Cork lost to Kilkenny at home on the opening day but followed that with a ten-point win over Davy Fitzgerald’s Clare side at Páirc Uí Rinn last time out.

The only change from that day sees Shane O’Neill replace the injured Damien Cahalane at corner-back.

Cork have named a strong side but are without the injured quintet of the aforementioned Cahalane, Jamie Coughlan, Bill Cooper, Patrick Cronin and Paudie O’Sullivan.

The throw-in takes place at Croke Park this Saturday at 5pm.


1. Anthony Nash (Kanturk)

2. Shane O’Neill (Bishopstown)
3. Christopher Joyce (Na Piarsaigh)
4. Conor O’Sullivan (Sarsfields)

5. Lorcán McLoughlin (Kanturk)
