Offaly Hurling

Offaly hurling boss Kevin Ryan has named his team to play his native county of Waterford in Saturday’s All-Ireland Hurling Qualifier at Bord na Móna O’Connor Park.

In attack James Mulrooney comes in at corner forward in place of Sean Cleary.

The team in full is:

James Dempsey - Kinnitty
Ben Conneely - St Rynaghs
Dermot Shortt - St Rynaghs
Pat Camon - St Rynaghs
Sean Gardiner - Lusmagh
Aiden Treacy - St Rynaghs
