Cork manager Jimmy Barry-Murphy has placed his faith in goalkeeper Anthony Nash for Sunday's Munster Championship semi-final against Tipperary (Páirc Uí Chaoimh, 4.00pm).

Kanturk clubman Nash takes over from Martin Coleman who started in place of the injured Donal Óg Cusack in the Allianz Hurling League final defeat to Kilkenny.

Cork: A Nash; S O'Neill, B Murphy, C O'Sullivan; T Kenny, E Cadogan, W Egan; D Sweetnam, L McLoughlin; C Lehane, P Cronin, C Naughton; J Coughlan, P O'Sullivan, P Horgan.

Barry-Murphy has also decided to leave veteran defender Seán Óg Ó hAilpín out of the side, with Tom Kenny starting in his place at wing-back.

There are six changes in total from the side that lost to the Cats, with Conor O'Sullivan coming into the full-back line in place of Stephen McDonnell.

In midfield, Darren Sweetnam is, as expected, preferred to John Gardiner having completed his Leaving Certificate, while in attack Cathal Naughton replaces the injured Niall McCarthy and Jamie Coughlan comes in for Luke O'Farrell.
