Kinsale's Sadhbh O'Leary to start for Rebels on Sunday
BY DECLAN ROONEY
EPHIE Fitzgerald’s Lidl National League Division 1 champions Cork have made two changes to their starting team as they prepare for Sunday’s TG4 Munster Senior Championship Round 2 clash with Waterford.
From the Lidl NFL Division 1 final victory over Galway, Cork have made two switches with Eimear Meaney starting in the full-back line, while up front, Sadhbh O’Leary is also in from the start for last year’s All-Ireland finalists.
Waterford, meanwhile, are unchanged from the Round 1 victory over Kerry, which saw the Déise begin their championship campaign with a bang. Megan Dunford misses out again due to the injury she picked up in Waterford’s Lidl NFL Division 2 final win over Kerry.
Cork and Waterford clash on Sunday at 5pm at Cork IT, and this is a first championship outing for the Leesiders since the 2018 TG4 All-Ireland senior final, when they lost out to Dublin in front of a record 50,141 attendance at Croke Park.
