Clare Team Announced for Tipp Game
Wednesday, 1st June 2005
Submitted by Administrator

TWENTY-TWO year-old Barry Nugent from the Eire Og club in Ennis will make his senior championship debut for Clare in Sunday’s Guinness Munster hurling semi-final against Tipperary at the Limerick Gaelic Grounds.

A former minor and U21 star, Nugent shone this season with Limerick IT, who won the Fitzgibbon Cup for the first time in their history.

Nugent came on as a substitute in the League final against Kilkenny and is preferred to Conor Plunkett at left half-forward.

Apart from the introduction of Nugent, the Clare selectors have also made a number of positional switches from the side that lost to the Cats in the league decider.

Diarmuid McMahon moves to right half-forward with Tony Griffin taking over the centre-forward duties. Griffin, who had just returned from Canada before the League final, lined out in the left corner-forward position on that occasion.

Tony Carmody, who started the Kilkenny game on the left wing, is now chosen at right corner-forward with Alan Quinn moving over to the opposite corner.

Alan Markham is selected at right half-back but is still troubled by a hamstring injury and will undergo a late fitness test.

CLARE (SH v Tipperary): D. Fitzgerald, F. Lohan, B. Lohan, G. O’Grady; A. Markham, S. Mc Mahon, G. Quinn; B. O’Connell, C. Lynch; D. McMahon, T. Griffen, B. Nugent; T. Carmody, N. Gilligan, A. Quinn.
