Carlow's Kevin McDonald.
Carlow boss Colm Bonnar has unveiled his team for their Christy Ring Cup opening round clash against Antrim at Netwatch Cullen Park tomorrow.

Jack Kavanagh, Sean Whelan, Eddie Byrne and Chris Nolan all drop out as the Barrowsiders aim to reverse the result of the league decider in Newry earlier this month.

Subs: Damien Jordan, Chris Nolan, Craig Wall, Dion Wall, Eddie Byrne, Gerard Coady, Jack Kavanagh, Jack Murphy, James O'Hara, Richard Kelly, Ross Smithers.
