Cork and Kilkenny name starting sides for Páirc Uí Chaoimh clash

Throw-in tomorrow night is 7.30pm.

PAT RYAN AND Derek Lyng have announced their starting sides for tomorrow night’s Division 1A hurling league as Cork host Kilkenny.

Cork have made five changes to their team in the wake of last Sunday’s loss to Clare.

Eoin Downey, an All-Ireland U20 winner last year, comes into the defence, while there is a return from injury for Tim O’Mahony at wing-back. Rob Downey is another addition to the defence, with Conor O’Callaghan introduced at midfield and Luke Meade brought in to the attack.

Kilkenny bring O’Loughlin Gaels stars Huw Lawlor and Mikey Butler in to start defence as they return following their long campaign. Their club-mates Jordan Molloy and Conor Heary both started in last Sunday’s draw against Wexford, while attacker Luke Hogan is another new addition from the All-Ireland club finalists.

Mikey Carey is named to start at midfield, while All-Ireland intermediate club winner John Donnelly is selected at centre-forward.

Throw-in for tomorrow night’s game is 7.30pm with live TV coverage on RTÉ 2.
