Two changes to football team for replay

There are two changes in personnel on the Clare senior football team for Saturday’s first round championship replay with Waterford at Dungarvan from that which started in the drawn game in Ennis last week.

As expected, Shane Brennan is retained and he takes over from the unavailable Podge Collins who will be with the hurlers this week for their Munster championship semi-final against Cork on Sunday. Brennan is named at full forward with David Tubridy moving to the corner where Collins started last week.

The other change is also in attack where Meelick’s Barry Hartnett, brother of full back Kevin, takes over from Jamie Malone.

Sean Collins who, like his brother Paodge is also a member of the senior hurling panel, is available to the footballers for Saturday’s game.

The team is: Joe Hayes (Lissycasey); Dean Ryan (Éire Óg), Kevin Hartnett (Meelick), Martin McMahon (Kilmurry-Ibrickane); Shane Hickey (Kilmurry-Ibrickane), Gordon Kelly (Miltown), Ciaran Russell (Éire Óg); Gary Brennan (Clondegad) captain, Shane McGrath (Thomas Davis); Sean Collins (Cratloe), Enda Coughlan (Kilmurry-Ibrickane), Barry Hartnett (Meelick); Martin O’Leary (Kilmihil), Shane Brennan (Clondegad), David Tubridy (Doonbeg).
