TIPPERARY BOSS LIAM Sheedy has made three changes to his starting side ahead of their All-Ireland SHC Round 2 qualifier against Cork tomorrow.

Patrick ‘Bonner’ Maher, Dan McCormack and Michael Breen come in to the XV ahead of the LIT Gaelic Grounds showdown [throw-in 4pm].

Maher returns to the inter-county stage having suffered a cruciate knee ligament rupture against Limerick in last year’s championship.

Niall O’Meara is named at wing half-back, with injury ruling Barry Heffernan out of the defence. Sean O’Brien and Mark Kehoe are the other players who make way from the side who lost to the Treaty last time out, with several other positional changes on show.
