CORK AND GALWAY have named their starting line-ups for their All-Ireland senior semi-final clash on Sunday, [throw-in, 1.30pm].

Galway have made on change to the side who narrowly overcame Monaghan to secure their spot in the final-four, with Sarah Gormally coming in to replace Fabienne Cooney.

Cooney was issued a red card in that victory over Monaghan and will therefore miss Sunday’s showdown in Parnell Park.

Gormally slots in at corner-back as the Tribeswomen aim to reach their second successive All-Ireland decider.

Meanwhile, Cork have drafted Shauna Kelly into their starting side for Sunday’s tie.

Kelly has been named to start at corner-back, having come on at half-time of their last group game against Cavan. Meabh Cahalane drops to the bench in the only change from that recent win.

Dual player Libby Coppinger is included amongst the substitutes for a game that will determine who faces Dublin in the final on Sunday 20 December. Cork and Galway last faced off in 2017 when they met at the quarter-final stage with Cork running out comprehensive winners.

Throw-in at Parnell Park is 1.30pm with live TV coverage on TG4.

Meanwhile it was announced today that the Ulster senior ladies final will take place between Monaghan and Armagh on Saturday 12 December. Clones will host the game at 1.30pm with the BBC set to livestream the game.
