CILLIAN BRENNAN RETURNS to the starting fifteen as Clare prepare to take on Derry in the All-Ireland SFC quarter-finals.

Colm Collins has named his team for Saturday’s quarter-final which commences at 3:45pm in Croke Park.

Clondegad’s Cillian Brennan is back in the Banner side having overcome a hamstring injury which has kept him out of action since Clare lost to Limerick in the Munster SFC quarter-final at the end of April.

Brennan returns to the side with Alan Sweeney of St Breckans making way and Cian O’Dea pushing forward to the half-back line.

Podge Collins and Aaron Griffin are listed to start at corner forward and will be key to Clare’s attempts to make a strong start, while the trio of David Tubridy, Gavin Cooney and Joe McGann capable of making an impact if required from the bench.

With Brennan and McGann returning to the matchday panel, defenders Ronan Lanigan and Conor Jordan bow out.

Corner forward Niall Loughlin has recovered from a niggling back injury to be included in Rory Gallagher’s Derry side. The Ulster champions are at full-strength for what will be their first outing since claiming the provincial title for the first time in twenty four years.
