Offaly Camogie manager Aidan Franks has named an unchanged line up from the side that overcame Dublin in the opening game in the Liberty Insurance Senior Camogie Championship for this Saturday’s clash with Tipperary.

Offaly had an impressive win over Dublin in that opening game with minor stars Ann Marie Guinan and Rachel Brennan both finding the back of the net while Elaine Dermody scored 1-9.

Captain Arlene Watkins remain unavailable as she continues her recovery from a fractured ankle. Drumcullen’s Fiona Stephens will continue as captain in her absence. Karen Connolly is also ruled out with a hand injury.

A win for Offaly in Banagher on Saturday coupled with a win for Cork over Dublin would guarantee the Faithful County a place in the All Ireland quarter-finals.

The team in full is

1. Eleanor Clendennen (Kinnitty)

2. Fiona Stephens (Drumcullen)

3. Triona McDonald (Kilcormac/Killoughy)

4. Marian Crean (Shinrone)

5. Linda Sullivan (St Rynaghs)

6. Michaela Morkan (Shinrone)

7. Sheila Sullivan (Birr)

8. Aoife Kelly (Lusmagh)

9. Siobhan Flannery (St Rynaghs)

10. Ann Marie Guinan (Drumcullen)

11. Lorraine Kenna (Kilcormac/Killoughy)

12. Debbie Flynn (Kilcormac /Killoughy)

13. Rachel Brennan (St Cillians)

14. Elaine Dermody (Drumcullen)

15. Tina Hannon (Naomh Bríd)
