Skipper Michael Shields and Fermoy’s Tomás Clancy are injured, meanwhile. Tom Clancy goes to full back while Fintan Goold is named at centre back.

U21 stars Brian O’Driscoll and Conor Dorman get their first chance to impress at the senior grade while Eoin Cadogan and Aidan Walsh are with Jimmy Barry Murphy’s hurlers.
