CORK HAVE BROUGHT Lorcan McLoughlin and Conor Lehane back into their team for Sunday’s All-Ireland senior hurling semi-final against Galway in Croke Park.
Manager Jimmy Barry-Murphy has made two changes from the quarter-final success over Waterford with Kanturk clubman McLoughlin coming in at midfield for Daniel Kearney while Midleton player Conor Lehane has shaken off the virus that sidelined him for the clash with the Déise to start at right half-forward. Niall McCarthy is the player to lose out here. Meanwhile Christopher Joyce returns to the squad after recovering from a hand injury and takes his place on the bench.
