Brian Murphy has been drafted back into the Cork team for Sunday’s All-Ireland final against Clare following a lengthy injury lay-off.
Murphy, who has not featured for Cork since breaking his collar bone in a club game in June, starts at wing-back in the only change from the side that beat Dublin in the semi-final.
The 31-year-old replaces Tom Kenny, the only other player in the Cork squad who has won an All-Ireland medal on the field of play, in the Rebels’ defence.
Murphy has taken a full part in training in recent weeks and has played in a club game with Bride Rovers.
He was one of Cork's outstanding performers in the Munster semi-final win over Clare, performing an excellent man-marking job on Clare danger man Tony Kelly.
Cork (SH v Clare): A Nash; S McDonnell, S O'Neill, C O'Sullivan; B Murphy, C Joyce, W Egan; L McLoughlin, D Kearney; S Harnedy, P Cronin, C Lehane; L O'Farrell, P Horgan, J Coughlan.
