CLARE senior football manager Mark Fitzgerald has made one change in personnel to the starting fifteen for Sunday’s Munster final.

Cusack Park hosts Sunday’s Munster senior football final with a 13:45 start as Mark Fitzgerald’s charges welcome Kerry to Ennis.

Daniel Walsh has recovered from injury and regains his place in the first fifteen, the return of the Kilmurry Ibrickane man comes at the expense of Éire Óg’s Mark McInerney who scored 1-2 in the semi-final win against Waterford.

Walsh’s addition to the half-forward line sees Ciaran Downes named to closer to the goal at corner forward with Emmet McMahon and Aaron Griffin joining him in the inside line. Dermot Coughlan and Gavin Murray finish off the half-forward line.

Cillian Brennan captains the side from full back with Éire Óg duo Ronan Lanigan and Manus Doherty on either side of him with Stephen Ryan remaining between the posts.

Indeed the entire back nine is unchanged with the half-back line comprised of Alan Sweeney, Cillian Rouine and Ikem Ugwueru with Brian McNamara and Darragh Bohannon partnering each other in midfield for the second game in a row.

Having also missed out on the Munster semi-final due to injury, Micheál Garry is back in contention but has to settle for a place among the substitutes. Both Fergal Ginnane and James Curran make the matchday panel having been omitted for the semi-final while the trio of Cian Burke, Thomas Kelly and Kieran Malone miss out.
