Cork have made one change to their U21 team for the Munster final in Páirc Uí Chaoimh on Wednesday night. 

Tim O’Mahony returns to full-forward after he was withdrawn before throw-in in their semi-final against Waterford last week. The Newtownshandrum man was on the bench for the Cork seniors last Sunday in their Munster final victory over Clare.

Shane Kingston captains the side that also includes Darragh Fitzgibbon, Mark Coleman and Robbie O’Flynn. Cork are on the hunt for their first U21 Munster title since 2007 when Shane O’Neill lifted the trophy.

Their opponents, Tipperary have named an unchanged team from the side that beat champions, Limerick in Thurles last Thursday night. Tipperary senior, Jake Morris was on flying form in that victory while Paudie Feehan and Jerome Cahill are also named in the impressive forward lineup.

Throw-in tomorrow at Páirc Uí Chaoimh is 7.30pm.
