CORK HAVE NAMED their starting side for their opening game in the Electric Ireland Munster minor hurling championship on Sunday against Clare.

Cork are the reigning champions at this level but there is a new round-robin format in Munster this year while the grade has been switched from U18 to U17.

Cork have named two players from the county’s U17 team that won All-Ireland honours against Dublin last August.

Wing-back Cormac O’Brien and centre-forward Shane Barrett both played in that victory in Croke Park. Midfielder Olan Broderick and substitute Cathal Hickey both featured for Midleton CBS in February’s Dr Harty Cup final.
