Cork will start Sunday’s Allianz Football League semi-final against Dublin in Croke Park with two changes from the team that eased past Kerry last Sunday - although dual players Aidan Walsh and Eoin Cadogan will both miss out with injury.
Donncha O’Connor and Daniel Goulding both come into the forward line to replace the injured Colm O’Driscoll and Barry O’Driscoll. Walsh and Cadogan are both nursing hamstring injures, as is Donal Óg Hodnett.
John O’Rourke (groin), Barry O’Driscoll (broken thumb) and Colm O’Driscoll (calf) were also ruled out, although there was better news for Ruairi Deane, the knee injury he recently sustained not now requiring surgery, and he will return to training following another two weeks of rehab.
CORK (SF v Dublin): Ken O’Halloran; Michael Shields, Jamie O’Sullivan, Tom Clancy; James Loughrey, Patrick Kelly, Damien Cahalane; Fintan Goold, Andrew O’Sullivan; Mark Collins, Donncha O’Connor, Paul Kerrigan; Daniel Goulding, Brian Hurley, John Hayes.
