May 27, 2011

Tipperary's John O'Keeffe
John O'Keeffe is the only championship newcomer included in the Tipperary team for Sunday's Munster SHC quarter-final against Cork at Semple Stadium.

A member of last year's All-Ireland under 21 winning side, the Clonoulty-Rossmore clubman has been given the nod at left half back in a team that features 12 survivors from last September's Liam McCarthy Cup winning line-up.

David Young and Seamus Callanan, who both saw action as substitutes in the All-Ireland final, are named at right half back and right half forward respectively, with Declan Fanning (retired), Brendan Maher (injured) and Conor O'Mahony the players to drop out.

Shane McGrath has recovered from a knee injury to start in midfield alongside Gearoid Ryan.

Tipperary (SH v Cork): B Cummins; P Stapleton, P Curran, M Cahill; D Young, Padraic Maher, J O'Keeffe; G Ryan, S McGrath; S Callanan, N McGrath, Patrick Maher; E Kelly, J O'Brien, L Corbett.
