ENNISKEANE’S Orla Cronin and St Colum’s Libby Coppinger will start for Cork in Sunday’s All-Ireland senior camogie final against defending champions Kilkenny – but there is no place for the injured Gemma O’Connor.
O’Connor picked up the knee injury in the semi-final win against Galway and Cork Camogie has confirmed that she is out of Sunday’s decider in Croke Park.
‘While working with the medical team, to give her the best possible opportunity to play in her 13th final, advice provided is that she won't be in position to participate. To lose such a leader has been a blow to players and management, but they continue to prepare positively for Sunday's showpiece,’ Cork camogie said.
Cork team v Kilkenny: Aoife Murray; Pamela Mackey, Rena Buckley, Laura Treacy; Meabh Cahalane, Ashling Thompson, Chloe Sigerson; Libby Coppinger, Eimear O’Sullivan; Amy O’Connor, Orla Cronin, Orla Cotter; Hannah Looney, Niamh McCarthy, Katrina Mackey.
