SEÁN CAREY, SON of Kilkenny hurling icon DJ Carey, will start for the Cats’ Intermediates in Sunday’s All-Ireland final with Cork at Páirc Uí Chaoimh.

Manager Anthony McCormack has named the 19-year-old at corner-forward for Sunday’s clash, with Martin Power – younger brother of camogie All-Ireland winner Katie – leading the line for the reigning champions.

Seán Carey followed in his father’s footsteps in winning two Dr. Croke Cups in 2015 and 2016, and hurls with Young Irelands. His younger brother, Michael, fell just short with St. Kieran’s in this season’s Dr. Croke final, as the College Road school were edged 3-13 to 3-11 by Our Lady’s Templemore back in March.

Throw-in tomorrow is at 2pm.
