THE 2015 GAA/GPA Hurler of the Year TJ Reid has been included in the Irish hurling/shinty team for their clash with Scotland later this month.

The Kilkenny star is part of an eighteen-man panel, along with Waterford’s Maurice Shanahan, Clare’s David McInerney and Zane Keenan from Laois.

Reid’s presence in the squad should provide the side with a boost after losing in Inverness last month.

The team, managed by Jeffrey Lynskey and Gregory O’Kane, suffered a 3-15 to 2-08 defeat – the biggest Scottish win since 2007.

The return game takes place on 21st November at Croke Park and throws-in at 4.35pm – directly preceding the International Rules clash between Ireland and Australia.
