MICHEAL DONOGHUE HAS named his starting side to face reigning All-Ireland champions Tipperary in Sunday’s Allianz Hurling League final.

Paul Killeen and Jason Flynn both come into the starting lineup following last weekend’s semi-final win over Limerick. The duo came off the bench during last Sunday’s second half.

The Galway defence sees some positional changes to make way for Killeen. Daithi Burke starts at full-back in place of John Hanbury. Aidan Harte takes Burke’s place in the half-back line while Killeen lines out in the corner.

Flynn meanwhile replaces Padraig Brehony in the half-forward line.
