DOHENYS’ Fionn Herlihy has been named in the Cork full-forward line for their Munster U20 football championship semi-final away to Clare in Miltown-Malbay on Wednesday night at 7pm.

Herlihy is joined in a dangerous attack by Mark Cronin (Nemo Rangers) and Blake Murphy (St Vincent’s), as the Cork U20s begin their provincial title defence.

There will be plenty of West Cork interest in the young Rebels as David Buckley (Newcestown) and Bill Foley (Bantry Blues) start in the half-back line, while Jack Lawton (Argideen Rangers) is named in midfield.

Clare beat Waterford by 3-14 to 0-6 in their quarter-final last week.
