2024 TG4 All-Ireland Finals tickets

Team news: Cork and Monaghan announce starting 15s for St Brendan's Park meeting

Group 2, Round 2:

Cork v Monaghan; St Brendan’s Park, Birr, 3pm (S McNulty) (LIVE, TG4). 

CORK regained the TG4 Munster title recently when they saw off Kerry in the provincial final.

Saoirse Noonan came off the bench to make a phenomenal impact on her senior debut, netting two second half goals.

Noonan, the prodigiously-talented former underage star, is named among the substitutes again as Cork begin their All-Ireland series with a clash against old rivals Monaghan.

Lethal inside forward Eimear Scally is named on the bench, after missing the Munster final.

Cork got the better of Monaghan in the 2008, 2011 and 2013 All-Ireland finals, and the counties met most recently in the championship in a 2017 qualifier.

That game was notable for the ‘score assistant’ verification of a Ciara McAnespie goal for Monaghan – but Cork still rallied to win.

Cork boss Ephie Fitzgerald has named an unchanged team for the first game of a LIVE TG4 double-header at St Brendan’s Park in Birr.

Eva Woods and Jane Drury, who both came off the bench in last Saturday’s draw with Armagh in Clones, both earn starts for the Cork clash.
