CORK have suffered a major injury blow ahead of Sunday's TG4 All-Ireland Ladies SFC semi-final against Meath in Croke Park with ace forward Orla Finn ruled out.
Kinsale footballer Finn isn’t named in the match-day squad and her place in the starting team is taken by Katie Quirke
Finn started against Waterford in the Páirc Uí Chaoimh quarter-final victory but had to come off in the ninth minute.
Meath, a huge story in the 2021 championship, have named an unchanged team after defeating 2020 semi-finalists Armagh last time out.
Meath have the chance to make it through to a very first senior final and continue a remarkable period of success that has seen them crowned intermediate champions last year, and Lidl NFL Division 2 winners in June.
