Pa Cronin will start at wing forward for Cork


Cork welcome back Pa Cronin and Lorcán McLaughlin for Sunday’s Munster SHC final against Limerick at the Gaelic Grounds.

Cronin has recovered from illness and will start on the half-forward line, while McLaughlin has returned to full fitness and will partner Daniel Kearney in the middle.

Brian Murphy absence is a blow for the Rebels as they seek a first provincial crown since 2006 and so Stephen McDonnell will now occupy the full-back slot.

Other changes from the semi-final win over Clare sees Shane O’Neill start at No 2, while Tom Kenny drops back to the half-back line and Cian McCarthy is handed the No 11 jersey. Stephen Moylan drops to the bench.

Limerick keep faith with the side that beat Tipperary on 9 June.
