Eleven-time All-Ireland football winner Briege Corkery is set to make dramatic return this weekend as she is named to captain the Munster team competing in the annual Interprovincial tournament.
Corkery last lined out for Cork in the 2016 All-Ireland final when they defeated Dublin in Croke Park and has been absent from the inter-county game since then.
While she did return to the Cork camogie side earlier this year on the way to retaining their All-Ireland crown, the dual star has yet to come back to line out for Ephie Fitzgerald's charges, having amassed 18 All-Ireland medals in total across the two codes.
Corkery’s last time to play Interprovincial Football was back in 2013 and the 10-time All-Star is set to make her return to that competition as Munster look to wrangle the cup off the current holders Ulster.
All four provinces have unveiled their squads for the tournament, with All-Ireland winners Lyndsey Davey and Carla Rowe Dublin's two representatives on the Leinster panel. Davey, who has been nominated for the 2018 TG4 Senior Players’ Player of the Year award, will lead out the side as captain.
All-Ireland finalists Cork have 10 representatives in the Munster squad including Corkery while seven Mayo players are included in the Connacht pack along with 12 from Galway, including Tracey Leonard who will captain the province.
All-Ireland semi-finalists Donegal have three players listed in the Ulster team for the tournament which will be held on Saturday at the WIT Sports Campus.
The action gets underway at 11am, with the Interprovincial and Shield Finals pencilled in for 3.30pm.
