Colm Galvin is to make his first starting appearance in a Clare jersey in two years.

Galvin is one of three changes to the Banner side which recorded their first league win away to Laois two weeks ago. Tony Kelly and Mark Rodgers enter the side at midfield and corner forward respectively.

Clare’s five point championship win over Cork in Cusack Park in June 2019 was the last time that Colm started for the county hurlers. That fixture coincided as the final outing of the Donal Moloney and Gerry O’Connor era. He missed the 2020 campaign but was introduced as a substitute when Clare defeated Laois by thirteen points a fortnight ago.

He is named to start at wing-forward however Clare followers are hopeful he will be utilised as a potential centre back allowing his clubmate John Conlon to revert to the forward line where he was named as an All Star in 2018.

Former Clare footballer Aaron Fitzgerald retains his position at corner back while Jason McCarthy, Jack Browne and Shane Golden are the three players to make way from Brian Lohan’s starting fifteen.
