Cork have announced their team for the All-Ireland hurling final against Limerick - and the big news is that Shane Kingston is in in the full forward line.
Cadogan and Kingston in Cork team for All-Ireland final
Shane Kingston will have known for a while now what his fate was to be on All-Ireland final day, given head coach Kieran Kingston is his father. After a man-of-the-match display against Kilkenny in the All-Ireland semi-final, Kingston Sr has opted to start the Douglas man in the full forward line.
As expected, Ger Millerick misses out on a place in the team due to a hamstring injury. Sadly for the Fr O'Neill's half-back, he's not even fit enough to make the bench.
The questions as to who will replace Millerick have now been answered, with the experienced Eoin Cadogan coming in at 7.
34-year-old Cadogan is seeking to add an All-Ireland hurling title to the football crown he won with Cork in 2010.

Cork are aiming to take the county's first All-Ireland triumph since that 2010 football final and, if they can finally vanquish Limerick, it will be the first time Liam McCarthy has travelled Leeside for 16 years.
Limerick named an unchanged team for the final, with Peter Casey starting at corner forward after having his red card in the semi-final against Waterford overturned.
