EAMONN RYAN HAS named an unchanged side as Cork bid for another five-in-a-row — and a remarkable 10th All-Ireland ladies football title in 11 seasons.

The Rebels meet Dublin in Croke Park on Sunday in a repeat of the 2014 decider.

Both Rena Buckley and Briege Corkery are bidding to complete the ‘double-double’ and match the success of last season when they won both the football and camogie titles.

The pair are also among the super six who are chasing their 10th football All-Ireland having featured on every Cork since their maiden win in 2005.

Deirdre O’Reilly, Valerie Mulcahy, Bríd Stack, Geraldine O’Flynn can also make it a perfect 10 with another win over the Dubs.

Gregory McGonigle makes one change to the side which beat Armagh with Fiona Hudson starting at corner-back in place of Kim Flood.
