Devine is named to start at full-forward in the EirGrid Munster U21 football semi-final which takes place at the Fraher Field in Dungarvan at 7.30pm.

Yesterday he was involved with Derek McGrath’s senior side that lost to Dublin and the previous weekend he raised a green flag in Waterford’s win over Tipperary.

Modeligo club man Devine netted twice against the Cork senior hurlers last year in the Allianz Division 1 league final and their Munster senior championship semi-final.

He started at centre-back on the Waterford U21 football side that lost out to Clare last year.

Stephen Dalton, Dermot Ryan, Jack Mullaney, Jason Curry and Conor Murray are other survivors from that Deise starting team while Liam Mulligan came on as a substitute in that match.

Cork enter the game on the back of last week’s comprehensive quarter-final win over Clare.
