AFTER TWO HIGH-scoring wins to open up their 2015 league campaign Cork have named their side that will travel to Donegal looking for victory number three. Colm O’Neill has been magnificent for Brian Cuthbert’s men and he will line-out at corner forward with Donncha O’Connor and Brian Hurley completing the full-forward line.

The spine of the defence is strong too with Michael Shields starting at fullback and Eoin Cadogan being selected at centre half-back.

Brian O’Driscoll, Ian Maguire and Ruairi Deane were not in contention for selection due to injury.

The game takes place in Ballyshannon this Sunday at 2pm.
